“My first time at Farm Aid”

Thanks to Dee Sulenski, from Virginia, for sharing her first experience at Farm Aid.

I was given the wonderful opportunity to attend the FarmAid Press Conference, in the morning, that kicked off Farm Aid 2016. I left this press conference feeling humble, respecting our farmers and wanting to be a better person.
All four of the founders and Board Members of Farm Aid (Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews) spoke and this was followed by several live interviews with farmers and activists from my home state of Virginia.  Some of the statements that stick with me are:
“There is no more honorable profession than growing food”
“Social Responsibility”
“Farming has been stolen, taken over by big industry” I find this so very frightening!
“We need a Revolution to a natural existence”
“Poison our food…poison ourselves”
“Growing healthy food is simple. Know what you are eating and where it comes from”
“If you want a better world, it starts with you”
“Follow the Family Farm and you will see the future of America”
This wisdom added to my desire to be a better citizen of my country and of the Earth!

I was overjoyed to see The First Lady of Virginia, Mrs. Terry McCauliff, open the Press Conference, and even more overjoyed to meet her!
