Is this what our world has come to? Children playing in oil. I want to cry. I feel so helpless.
There is now oil on my hometown beaches:
They have asked people to stay out of the waters:
There is oil in our Mobile Bay:
They haven't stopped the leak. My friends and families jobs and homes are already being affected. Animals are dying. Restaurants in the area aren't hiring and are losing money. I just want to cry. Why aren't they doing more? Why can't they fix this? Why did this happen? I just want to SCREAM.
Here is a note a friend from Pensacola wrote us:
Say a prayer today for the people in charge of this mess, that they can stop the leak. Say a prayer for the birds, the fish, and all of the sea life that is dying because of this. Say a prayer for the fishermen, the restaurant owners, and everyone who relies on summer tourism so that they can put food on the table for their families. Say a prayer for our President, that he will have the wisdom to help lead the people who are in charge of cleaning up this mess.
