A friend of mine posted this link to a blogger in Pensacola. It is not very long but beautifully poignant. Please take the time to read it.
I know Lori feels the same as she lives there too and made the same trek with her husband the other day to this beautiful beach with it's pure white sand....This is what she says about her area....
"I just want folks to know that this is one of the few beaches left in this country that looks like it does. It is unspoiled and accessible. It was made by mother earth to be enjoyed by families and fisherman, the occasional lone beach walker, or a cuddly couple. "
I do not blame them for feeling this way...This oil gushing from below is a man-made crime against Nature.
Toxins being dumped into the ocean to disburse a toxin causing even more pollution that will be deadly to marine, animal and plant life...and to us...we are all connected....pain and destruction caused in one area will be felt everywhere. Be it is physically or psychologically.
How awful that a fossil fuel sought by this country can cause so much devastation whether by oil contamination or war. I hope people across this country will listen to what residents of those areas are saying...I hope that this will make people think more about CLEAN energy...and move towards it and eliminate these potential disasters to our environment.
As you look at these pictures of this beautiful area...
just imagine it covered with black, mucky, toxic oil !!!
