I have been told by friends and family to accept the fact this bailout will pass. (“Green light for RED,” Friday, March 26) They tell me no matter what is said or how convincing my arguments may be, it won’t matter. I am going to have to learn to fight the fights I can and to accept the fights I can’t fight.

I had to accept my mother passing away in a car accident at a dangerous intersection, but I fought to get that intersection closed so no one else would go through that tragedy. I had to accept my father losing his battle to cancer, but I contribute consistently to cancer research so that one day no one will have to go through what he went through.

Only 48 hours were given from the time the information on the studies were given to the council members until the vote at the special session. This is not enough time to make an informed decision. Furthermore, this study was not included in the agenda packet available to the public on the city website. The unacceptable part is that I was just e-mailed from City Hall; no citizens will be allowed to speak in favor of or opposition to this bond issue.

The citizens of Blue Springs may have to accept that this bond issue will pass and our voices will not be heard. However, we do not have to accept that this will ever happen again.
