As most of you know, I live in Pensacola, FL right along the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Our beaches are insanely gorgeous. I am in love with our beaches and I grew up here.
This oil spill is undoubtedly tragic in every sense of the word and is threatening our beautiful beaches and marine life thus effecting our economy as a whole. We thrive on tourism and seafood. Our beaches and food attract people from everywhere.
The oil is supposed to hit our shores in full either Tuesday or Wednesday.
I could cry.
I'm so sad for the lives that were lost as a result of this explosion and I'm also saddened by the cause and effect that this is going to have on America as a whole.
Many efforts are being made to prevent this from being as detrimental as most are predicting.
I do realize that this is effecting many coasts but this just hits too close to home.
RIP Gulf of Mexico.
