Only the Beginning

These photos show only the beginning of what we're going to see in the next few weeks and months.

Gut-wrenching.

Sickening.

Mournful.

This is the only "encouraging" article I've read on the whole fiasco. In spite of man's carelessness, nature shows an amazing ability to recover.

Whoa. Darfur. Sudan. North Korea.

Switch media outlets or something.

I know that my obsession with what's happening in the Gulf may see out of proportion in comparison to Darfur, Sudan, North Korea...etc.

But here's the thing..... I don't live in those places, they don't personally have much impact on me, and there is very little I can do about them.

Keep in mind that if some monumental ecological disaster began to happen in New Hampshire in some of the places that you love, devastating large swaths of the state....and contiuned to happen for months with no resolution in sight....possibly leaving places that might never quite recover...that you might find yourself quite as disgusted as I am.

I am upset. Beyond upset.

I really feel as if people aren't really understanding that we don't even know what's going to happen yet. No one knows what's happening underwater in he Gulf. No one has really documented the impact, or devastation, yet.

I am not normally a reactionary person. I think I am entitled to a few hysterics every now and then.

I came over to repent of my criticism, and found that you had already defended yourself. I wish I could have gotten here sooner. I mention all this in my next post, which I hope makes it up to you.
