This is an excellent post. I live in AZ, and am perplexed in how many people do not even care to listen what's unfolding in the GOM. I am right
there with the rest of you in believing that PEOPLE will not care unless it directly slaps them in their face!
I spoke with a good pal weeks ago about what is going on. Sent him links to ATS, etc. I asked him days later what he thought. His response.
"Dude, I'm so over this end of the world B.S."
I wasn't even linking him to threads that were "fear-mongering" type threads. More informative threads on what's being said, and what's being
On a completely different note, but on the same note....
I spoke to a company today in Mobile, AL. She was telling me on the phone today that her husband owns a Fishing Boat. Apparently he went to some
type of BP class for the capture of oil, and was given a "deckmate", or something like that. I can't actually remember how she put it. I was
asking her what the people down there are acting like...their demeanor...etc. She said that it's almost like they're in denial. She also said that
she has photographs of the boats that are coming in, and basically said that I would have see them to really understand what the public is not. I
gave her my personal email, and IF she actually sends anything to me, I will bring them here.
The best part of my conversation with this gal in Mobile, was very simple. I told her that my family is praying for EVERYONE in the Gulf States, and
that I have done everything that I can with sending letters to my Senators, Congressman, and have made donations to some of the townships that are not
getting help. By the end of my 43 minute call with her, she thanked me, and cried......
I also, by the end of the call, was very moved...as I do care.
God Bless all of you!
