This morning as I was driving to work I drove by a BP station and was shocked to see a throng of cars that had pulled in to fill up on their way to work ! This station is on a busy route and it does have competitive prices, but there are several other stations just down the road that they can fill up at.
Has no one been watching the news ! Has no one seen the images on all the major news networks of birds coated in oil, dead turtles in the water, tar balls washing up all over the beaches, and brown oil washing up into the fragile marshlands !? How about the 58 days ( now 69 ) days that oil has been gushing into the Gulf of Mexico !? So their way of dealing with the situation is to ignore it and put more money in the pockets of BP so they can keep on doing business as usual. Shame on you !
I love and adore Mother Earth, known to us as Jord, mother of Thor, and to see damage and destruction being done to her is heartbreaking. The damage will not be short term either ! If you are looking for an example just go back a few years to the Exxon Valdez disaster. They still have not fully recovered up in Alaska due to the negligence of that ships captain.
There are not many things that a nobody in a somebody world like me can do in a situation like this. I am just one person. But I will never again buy BP products or services !
Tonight I kneel before Mother Jord and ask on behalf of all humanity Her forgiveness. I would not blame Her if She turned Her back on us ! But I do not think She has given up on us just yet.
In the news yesterday, June 26, on CNN, they were showing a dolphin that had washed up on the beach. Workers tried to save it but to no avail. That image of the dying dolphin on a gurney will always be linked in my mind to BP. Dolphins like us are mammals and like us are very intelligent. To watch it die was heartwrenching.
Go with Odin' s wisdom, Freyja' s love, and Thor' s Protection !
