The Skyline Drive for many years has been our family's favorite destination to get away and unwind. The majestic views really help us to remember our priorities. We are so blessed to have this natural wonder right next door.
I hope that during the ceremony some words of appreciation will go out to the many families who were displaced in the building of the Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah National Park. A visit to the park is such a moving experience for us. I cannot imagine what it was like 75+ years ago when the government came in and forced all residents to give up the homes that their ancestors had fought so hard to build. We hate to come off the mountain after a day of picnicking and hiking. Had I been so fortunate to live up there, I don't know if I would have been able to give it up.
To the descendants of all those who were forced to become flatlanders we just want to say that we deeply appreciate their sacrifice and will never take the beauty of the park for granted.

75 years of wasted taxes so tree huggers can commune with nature. Buldoze it and let industry come in with some jobs!

I suspect a liberal trying to pull off a mascarade.
