We went to the Mariner Restaurant at Dog River with some friends tonight. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the scenery, but it was disheartening to know that the oil slick isn't far away, waiting to find it's way here to destroy our fragile Ecosystem. Just under the Dog River Bridge, we could see the orange oil booms floating, pretending to be our first line of defense. It breaks my heart to see the pictures in the news showing the oil covered wildlife and I always have to look away. I pray God will be merciful to those animals and that He will give us the wherewithal to figure out how to stop the leak and clean it all up.
