I attended the protest with my daughter last night. I explained to her about the spill and how it effects her generation to come. She wanted to do something, i thought it would be good to let her express herself in a non violent manner and to let her walk. She walked for her future generations she walked for her uncle in New Orleans suffering, she walked for all the wildlife that have died and suffereing and im so proud of her.
What im not so proud of is the lack of people that attended the rally. I think we have forgotten our voices and our rights as human beings. If a 5 yr old can do something why cant others?

Well put, Sarah. I didn't know about the rally. Thank you for pointing out the ramifications of this spill, so many "common sense" conservatives want to avoid this ugly truth.

Real individuals with even half a brain know better, and understand that this mess is going to take decades to clean up.

Some people are just too cool for their own (and the rest of the planet's) good. Your daughter knows the score - not through years of study but through sensing right from wrong...

I've been amazed by the hostility coming from some people towards the marchers yesterday. The only thing to be hostile about is how our lawmakers allowed BP the freedom to destroy part of our natural resources (our children's legacy) for money and influence -mongering. Also how few pwople cared enough to attend even with a catastrophe of this proportion!!!!

AI am the grandmother of Sacha the 5 year old daughter with her mother and grandmother who were protesting against BP. I am so proud of them for rising up and protesting. So many people are sleeping in the light because they are so comfortable and they think as they say in Australia. "She'll be right mate". She won't be right. God has given us this beautiful planet to rein and have domain over and by protesting and marching our voices have to be heard. Too long have we allowed these multinationals to rein and dominate our planet thru. I pray that God will shake us up more and more to make the change. United we stand divided we fall.
Famous last words. DON'T GIVE UP
