I was in Chicago for most of May, disconnected from the internet and everything. And while it's good to be back, I am extremely saddened by the disaster at the Golf. It broke my heart to see all types of animals struggling to free themselves from the oil wrapping their bodies, or even worse-DEAD.
It's hard to imagine that a multi-million dollar company as BP has not received various solutions to end this tragedy (maybe if it was in their coasts, it'd be a different story). Perhaps, they don't want to stop this, or perhaps it is too costly, but as frustration builds and BP refuses to step into action, there are animals being affected by this ongoing oil spill. Once again, it is the most innocent, who are suffering the most..
