My Heart Goes Out

Destin, Florida July 2009

I am so sad to hear that the oil spill has reached the beautiful beaches of Florida today.  I have been looking forward to visiting Destin with my family again this July.  We all were looking forward to the soft powdery beach, the gentle surf, and the rays we could spot just off the shore in the crystal clear water.  The beautiful emerald water.  I'm so sad for what this means to the wildlife that lives in and around this water.  And the businesses.  And the thousands of families that will most likely change their vacation plans.  Some of the families that we met last year had been coming to Destin year after year.

God, I hope we all learn something from this.
