One of the many things that piss me off so much about this oil gusher (I refuse to call it a "leak") is the suffering of the sea animals. I feel so helpless. It breaks my heart to see the beautiful birds, turtles and marine life covered in sticky crude not mention dieing from it. It's criminal the way BP is handling this catastrophe. I could go on and on but I'll spare you. A friend posted this on her facebook page. Every little bit helps. Take a good look and see what you recognize.

Lost at Sea

We won't win any Parents of the Year award anytime soon but neither will these parents.

This is Abby Sunderland, she's just 16 years old and her parents allowed her to sail around the world alone, by herself, solo in a 40 foot boat. Now she's missing in the Indian Ocean. Last night her EPIRB locating device was activated. I'm sure Abby is a good sailor but how much experience could she have had in her lifetime? Certainly not enough to circumnavigate around the world. Apparently the search is on in the Indian Ocean between Africa and Australia. That's a lot of ocean to cover and the water is frigid. They hope she's wearing her survival suit.

I pray that they find her and she's alive and well. Her young life is just beginning. But I can't for the life of me understand why her parents would let her do this. Her brother did it last year and no double standard here, I don't think he should have done it either. I'm sure her parents are questioning themselves right now and I suppose now is not the time to throw stones at them. Please let her be found, one way or another for her and her parent's sake.
Edit~Abby was found alive thank goodness. I'm happy for her and her family. I still believe she should not have been out there alone.

I'm just sick over this.
