Thank you so very much for covering this. I too am very passionate about this topic and am in shock why others are not speaking out more. Do we all stand in denial and pretend it is not happening?ReplyDelete
When you pass over the dolphins, sharks and other critters too small to see from your plane, but who are dead and dying as a result of our gluttony, would you please "tell" them: the Bible teaches mankind that not a sparrow falls but that our God (Creator, Grandmother Earth) doesn't weep." Please let them know that many millions of people are weeping over what we, in worship to Big Oil, have done/are doing to them and their home. I, for one, will dedicate the remainder of my life to ensuring that this NEVER happens again . . . and that the effects of what should NEVER have happened to those innocents is mitigated, in hopes that their future generations may thrive.ReplyDelete
Thank you Hurricane for witnessing to the world this ongoing and seemingly endless tragedy. I am so moved by your strength, courage and compassion. Please find some moments to give yourself some respite.ReplyDelete
I second what Anonymous said. There is so much in the world to which we need to awaken. I can't help but wonder over and over what a different place this planet would be if just enough more of us could/would awaken and take the appropriate actions.
May you continue to be blessed with the love, compassion, courage and strength to continue your witnessing.
It is very tragic...the pictures are so scary and disheartening thinking how much the spill would affect the lives nearby and the world ocean base too.ReplyDelete
