Spilt Milk Spilt Oil by LuminousLuck Spilt Milk Spilt Oil by LuminousLuck
Well, where do I start? How about the picture itself? (which I'll upload later) It's the pretty white sand of West Beach, Gulf Shores, Alabama on May 29, 2010. This was my first visit to Gulf Shores, even though I live a mere 6 hours away in North East Alabama. I was lucky enough to have the chance to see those beautiful beaches before they were hit with the ugly tar balls; oil residue; and the general oily smell that took over the sea breezes we used to love. I believe it was June 4th, 2010 when the oil disaster finally hit us Alabamians.

Now, well, now those gorgeous beaches are covered in the evils of the BP oil spill, with barely anyone 'official' trying to clean it up. Yeah, the so called President showed up, made nice with the locals, and left, along with the official "cleaners" No, I'm not going to rant and rave about how two faced our government is (much.) I'm just going to ask that everyone do their damndest to show the government and all those in-command that we don't need their policies and promises. We as a people can help in many different ways [link] no matter our age or location or position in the world. Please don't turn a blind eye to this disaster.

Please be the one who at least tried to make a difference. Not the one who cried over spilt oil and did nothing to stop it from ruining OUR world.


Also, I've decided to enter this in Yuumei's contest on the oil spill. It's amazing what she's started. Check out her journal entry on the spill. [link]

Here's a few more links you might be interested in:
[link] is Planet Green's info on the spill.
[link] is a chronology of BP's big screw up. Look at it for a start to the current state of the Gulf.
