We went to the beach this morning. And as we stood at the top of the stairs about to walk down to the sand, we looked out across the ocean and saw light brown splotches all in the water.
Let me just tell you: playing "sandbar or oil?" is not a very fun game. Especially when the answer is "oil."
When I saw that oil I felt sad and sick. I couldn't even think about what the ocean looked like underneath the surface. The poor wildlife.
And then I got angry.
I was angry thinking of the animals and sea creatures whose lives and homes have been destroyed by this oil spill. I was angry thinking about the humans whose lives and homes have been destroyed by this oil spill.
Poor beaches and coasts. Poor animals and sea creatures. Poor humans.
Fuck you, BP.
