Everywhere you look there are photos, videos, news reports, articles and posts on the BP oil spill. The Associated Press is now saying the spill may be twice as big as they thought. The estimates for how much oil has been leaked keeps getting bigger and the damage just continues to get worse.

Some say it will take years to repair the damage to wildlife and the environment. Some say it will never be the same. People are angry, sad and dissatisfied. They want BP to clean it up. They want the government to take care of it. They don't care who does it as long as it's done. Everyone has an opinion, and rightly so. Something horrible happened to our planet and it needs to be fixed. Yes, that's right--our planet. Because no matter where you are in this world, damage of this magnitude will affect us all.

I know this isn't the most inspirational post so far, so let me try to make it so. The damage is done in this situation, but how can you use the emotions you're feeling to help better our world today? We all have a carbon footprint. Everyday companies like BP make choices that have environmental impacts. Like it or not, humanity has an effect on our precious, beautiful, gorgeous mother earth. I don't know about you, but I want to enjoy the world in which we live and as your fellow human, I want to afford that right to you by the decisions I make. We are upset about this situation, so let's keep this in mind as we vote, live, drive, and make choices. Are you with me?
