Breaks My Heart

I'm a hunter, Fisherman, Falconer, and all around Outdoors man and this photo just breaks my heart. For the past few years the Golf coast has been my our favorite place to vacation and the oil spill; now going on more than a month has left us speechless. The last time I was there the Gulf was Emerald green and you can see straight down through the water. Seafood was the driving force for the economy in the Gulf and it was because of this that both my wife and I loved to visit. But now it seems like these stories will be distant memories as though they are like old hunting grounds that have been torn up by mega store chains. It's almost impossible to understand the destruction that this spill has cost; which is more than peoples lively hood. The Ocean is a place of peace and it has always been a place of life. I am by far, no dirt worshiper or tree hugger. I just believe in being fair. My wife said it best, "Mother Nature will recover from this, but it won't happen when "WE" need it most." So Sad....

Breaks mine as well. We;ve ruined a precious gift from God, once again. And all for what? The biggest profit? We as humans have the power over the wild things, we have the power to live with or the power to destroy. I guess we are going to destroy.

Mine too. The tragedy is so immense, I have a hard time some days allowing myself to think about it. It is truly heart breaking. I love the water with a passion, I could never live far from the ocean. To see it violated so for our own short-sighted needs is tragic.

mine too - again compelling words - maybe now the blind will see and the ignorant will learn - and change can happen - peace
