Prayin Hard

I don't know about you, but I can hardly watch the news about the oil spill. It makes me sick to my stomach to think about the damage that could and is awaiting the beautiful Gulf Coast.



As you may know, the Jetplanes lived in Pcola for a couple of years while Mr. Jetplane was training. We just moved to NC late last summer.


We loved the area and particularly the BEAUTIFUL, WHITE, SANDY BEACHES. We loved our early morning walks along the beach on NAS Pcola and seeing all the wildlife running around you...birds...crabs...you name it. That beautiful blue water and those white beaches, make every morning so lovely.


Please keep all of the Gulf Coast... the water, the wildlife, and the people in your prayers, they are going to need it.

Seeing the picture of the bird covered in oil makes me want to cry.

I just saw the maps of the oil spill growths for the last week and it is gut wrenching. I JUST did an entire essay on the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (from '89) and all of the effects it had on the local wildlife and all of the family businesses it completely demolished. I can't believe it's happening again.

The main thing I ran into with my paper was how all of the scientist said had they kept it from reaching landfall it wouldnt be that bad but once oil reaches the land-it literally kills everything for YEARS and YEARS. It's been 20 years since exxon- and their are STILL LARGE amounts of oil deposits on the shores...and this new spill is larger and closer to more families :(

It's so awful. I can't stand to watch the news footage on it because it makes me feel helpless. I hope the damage isn't as bad as we're thinking it will be.

It makes me so sad! I can't believe they are even allowed to build oil rigs without safety measure to prevent these kind of things!

It really is so heartbreaking to think of all the destruction. It makes me so sad to think of all the native plants and animals that could possible be wiped out. Forever. We have GOT to find ways to use our resources better.

So sad that this is happening. I hope that BP takes swift action to remedy the problem. Hopefully it won't be too late.
