E-Mail Chat with D. H. Concerning

E-mail for D. H.

Gerry, you made the Decatur email news, too. I put in bold the part that tells your story.


Gerry's Response

Thanks so much for finding that, D. I wouldn't have thought to look. The TRUEFOODS Supermarket Campaign said they'd like to put it on their website.

They're also looking into getting a local lawyer to represent us pro bono at the hearing. I don't enjoy making a spectacle of myself but if it will in any way draw attention to the evils being perpetuated by Monsanto (See article beneath the other one below), I am willing to make that sacrifice.

We are trying to rally all the support we can to turn up at the Judge's office on our Court Date, 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, November 20th, to prove people really do care about the food that sustains them.

A lot of the allergies and chronic diseases for which the doctors can find no source or cure are reputedly being caused by these genetically engineered foods they have been sneaking into our food supplies over the last 10 -12 years.

Hope you can join us, and thanks again for being on the alert for the article.


ps: RE: the article below, I will cc this to others and hope people will take the time to email comments to the Decatur Daily, also, as you did, to Kroger's.

Your message will go further because you were arrested... This is terrible. Kroger will be sorry in many ways for what has happened. I doubt the assistant manager will have a job much longer.

Gerry's Response

D. H., the Assistant Manager was only doing what he was told to do by the Manager the day before. The manager was only doing what Headquarters told him to do. I believe the Manager was definitely empathetic as he seemed to be when I talked with him on Wednesday or Thursday. He was following the policy dictated by his superiors.

From D. H.

I searched a found a Kroger website. I sent them an email, asking for them to make public apology. Sent you a copy.


Gerry's Response

Now if others would follow suit, Kroger would learn they have a lot of Patrons who care about the ingredients in their food supply and if they want to keep those Patrons they will abide by their wishes.

It all gets down to the fact: HEALTH IS THE ONLY TRUE WEALTH, and WE ARE WHAT WE EAT!

Parents are the backbone of America and the conscience of the world. If they will unite on important things like this, we CAN change things for the better!
