Activists plan moment of silence for Judy Bonds

August 26, 2011 by Ken Ward Jr.

The folks at Coal River Mountain Watch have announced today that they will:

… Observe a moment of silence at noon, Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, August 27, 2011 to commemorate the birth and brilliant life of Julia “Judy” Bonds. They are calling on all activists to join this remembrance. Judy, who died in January of this year, would have been 59 years old Saturday. Judy’s fierce activism and determination crystallized the movement to end mountaintop removal coal extraction in Appalachia. This moment of silence will be observed annually.

    May God bless her soul. I miss her so much. Rest in peace Judy, you surely deserve it, you gave your all for people here where so much injustice abounds. You gave a voice to those who felt that they had none of their own. Thank you and God Bless you Judy. You will never be forgotten.

    Those that came to know Judy Bonds are indeed blessed. Those that think they knew her and thought of her as an enemy never understood that her heart and her work was dedicated to ensuring a healthy environemnt for every child living and yet to be born. Judy didn’t receive a travel transfer ticket or layover when she left this earth, she was given an express ticket to heaven. She probably tried to argue about it saying she could wait, give it to someone that needed it more. That was the way she was. I love you Judy and miss you so much.
