"But there's not been an equal amount of attention given to the grief and the loss of what's happened to the people that live near this new mine and to the wetlands and the forests and the wildlife."
Benediction means looking backward and forward," said Soto Zen Buddhist Rev. Tesshin Paul Lehmberg told ABC10
