Silent Death in the Gulf of Mexico

I sincerely feel for all those who make their living from the Gulf of Mexico. They are losing their livelihood for now and maybe forever. One thing in their favor is perhaps they will be given a second chance in another occupation. The animals on the other hand many may not be so fortunate to get a second chance or even take some precautions. This oil is a silent creeping death for most of them and that is not just heartbreaking, it’s gut wrenching.

This nightmare is out of control and I think we all know it. I'm not sure the ugliness of this disaster will end during our lifetime.

I know...it's heartbreaking. I am sick every time I think about it.

I am about 20 minutes from Gulf Shores, 30 from Orange Beach, seconds from Mobile Bay...we've seen nothing here. Life is continuing as normal as it can be here....

according to folks affected by the Alaskan spill from the Valdez, the destruction continues 21 years later.

There's an otter at the Seattle Aquarium which is a survivor of the Exxon Valdez spill. She's never been healthy. The damage from this clusterfuck of Halliburton/BP/Dick Cheney will go on for a very long time...

Trying to find places to volunteer if possible.

I'm not willing to call it the end of the world, tho. Remember, Lake Erie used to be "dead". If we can get the criminals to STOP the pollution, there's always some chance that between supreme efforts and the help of Mother Nature we can work for a miracle.
