I'm so bummed out!

This whole disaster with the oil spill in the Gulf has me spitting nails!  How was that ever allowed, and why do I feel so helpless about doing something about it?  How can we as people just stand by and allow things like that to pass the various channels that say "go ahead, drill for some $$$ in the Gulf, no matter what."  They didn't put a "safety" on the drill, because they didn't have to.  It saved them $ 500,000, but that is now killing, and is about to kill countless sea life, not to mention fouling the air with oily smoke and soiling the beaches.  As if the Gulf isn't polluted enough as it is.   This is crazy!!!!!  What were we thinking?  I say we, because we're all in this madness together!  I just want to stop the abuse to the planet, animals, and plants, and people. 

Sorry, getting off my soap box.  :(  Today, I'm ashamed of being part of this super STUPID species called mankind.

Hi, Maria!! I am right there with you and know that a lot of people are mad about this! It is terrible, but we have to believe that something good will come out of it. We have been abusing our 'home' way too long, but keep the faith - the tides will turn!!

Know that my prayers are going out to all of you over there, those in the water and on land, too.

Peace to you!! Sharon

You know, I was wondering earlier this week if this will give a new perspective to the line "Drill, baby, drill!"

I live in an area where coal is king..and heaven knows I get holy heck all the time when I mention solar energy and wind farms.

Often, I think we humans (especially Americans) cannot (or choose not to) really give consideration to the future...we want it NOW, and damn the consequences, and I am very often afraid that will not change until it is far too late.

It's always about the $$money$$ and greed, isn't it Maria?
I understand how you feel. We all need to wake up to the fact that we are all a part of the human family, and we are all connected-- humans and all living things. ((Hugs))

Hi, Maria! I have been thinking about you this week and wonder how you are doing. I didn't have an email address for you, so I hope this is OK to send it here! Sincerly, Sharon
