Sad Times  
I can't believe an entire year has gone by since we lost Michael Jackson. :( It still doesn't seem real in some ways, and it will forever be a devasting loss to the music industry and to everyone who loved him. Rest in peace, Michael. ♫

I have tried So hard to not watch much coverage of that horrible oil spill in the gulf, but sometimes it's just inevitable. Yesterday I happened to see a couple different stories involving the wildlife that just ripped my heart out. The first took place in Florida, I believe. A couple found a baby dolphin in the water that was in desperate need of help. They stayed with him until help came and tried everything they could to save him, but he ended up dying anyway. D`:

The other story was about this really rare species of turtles that are getting caught in nets and burned alive! I am beyond saddened when I hear/see these stories as I am a HUGE animal lover. I just wish they'd come up with a solution to fix this problem so that no more wildlife has to suffer and die. *prays*

I know. It doesn't feel like it's been a year, seems not that long ago. It was quite the loss :( RIP Michael.

It's such... it's just terrible. The poor ecosystem just can't cope with this :( Bet they'll been feeling the effects for years to come. The poor animals. Oh no, I didn't know the baby dolphin had died :( That's awful.
And what? Shouldn't be allowed, that's outragous. I really hope they're able to fix this so very soon... get your asses into gear, BP.

*hugs*

I know. :(

I can't cope with it either. It's really getting to be too much. I feel so terrible and helpless to do anything!

*hugs back*

I fear for all living things in the aftermath of this unfettered oil deluge. It's HUGE!

It's going to kill birds, turtles, dolphins, fish, plants, trees, and yes, in some way, us.

I can't help but feel it's some form of punishment against us because of our greediness in using fossil fuels.

This is man's doing. And will be man's undoing, too. I'm ashamed of us.

Love,
Robin

Me too! It's killed so many things already, it's so horrible. :(

I agree, you have to wonder. I'm ashamed of us as well.

You're right it's been a year and the realisation of it is not only it's been a year since we lost MJ, but it's been a year you know? How does time fly like that?
Anyway lots of hugs.

Time does fly way too fast! I can't believe an entire year has flown by. O.o

A year went really fast. :/ MJ was one of a kind.

All that's happening because of the oil spill is so horrible. Poor animals. :/
Kristin: Jared » CbtDkristypadalecki on June 26th, 2010 08:35 pm (UTC)
Definitely. There will never be anyone like him again. :(

I feel so bad for all the animals and people that have been effected by this tragedy!

I can't believe it, either. He really was a legend.

I feel the same way about the oil spill, hon. Every time I see pics of the animals that were affected it just breaks my heart so much. I'm really trying to avoid much coverage of it as well, but I get these emails from the American Human Association (my mom and I contribute to it) and of course they've been talking about it... *sigh*... I just try to skip past them now. In the past they'd have stories about animals that were neglected or abused that they saved, and reading about it and seeing the pics always makes me cry. :( I'm such a mush when it comes to animals, so I totally understand how you feel. Not going to say anything about fossil fuels or anything like that cause I think that's kind of a different issue in itself (and probably one people think I'm on the wrong side of, so... *ducks*... I'm just pissed that the company was being so incompetent in setting it up in the first place). But I hate how wildlife is suffering like this.

Here's hoping and praying that this gets resolved as soon as possible to spare more animals from suffering. *prays with you*

I can't even look at pics or watch coverage, it just kills me. I cry at everything already, so this has put me right over! It always seems like the helpness and most vulnerable are the ones to suffer when these tragedies occur, and it breaks my heart. :(

The oil spill is an absolute disgrace. It makes me so angry that innocent wildlife is being killed because of the greed and irresponsibility of these big oil companies. The whole situation is so sad.
Kristin: Jensenkristypadalecki on June 27th, 2010 05:19 pm (UTC)
I agree with you 100%. I wish this had never happened, and those big oil companies would really have to pay for what they've done.

One year already? Time flies.

We do take way too many things for granted. It's a shame that it takes something like this for happen for us to wake up! I just feel so desperately sad for all of the wildlife who have to suffer. :(
jeanniefan04 on June 30th, 2010 02:08 pm (UTC)
I know, I feel bad for the animals too. I'm tired of hearing about the oil spill, every single day. I hope they can get it cleared up, but it probably won't be anytime soon. :(
Kristin: Spring » Purple Flowerskristypadalecki on June 30th, 2010 08:38 pm (UTC)
I know, it does get to you hearing about it everyday! I really hope they come up with a solution that can put an end to this horrific tragedy. D:
