Apologize Already, Doug Suttles! - Page 3
I cannot imagine our New Jersey beaches being covered with miles of slick globular oil. I cannot imagine my feet sinking into the once white sand, now blackened with the smell of a gas station. I cannot imagine finding dead animal carcasses... birds with brown, greasy feathers stuck together and turtles gasping for their last breath. I cannot imagine looking out into the ocean and not seeing fishing boats hauling in their day's catch. I cannot imagine not seeing tourist scooting around on ski-dos and wave runners. I cannot imagine telling my children we can't go to the beach today because it is too dangerous.
So, Mr. Suttles, I implore you to cap that leak. I implore you and your company to continue the cleanup effort at any cost. And Mr. Suttles, I implore you to apologize before it is too late. Hear the American people. Show your empathy and your humanity. Make your mother proud.
This is an original post to NJ Moms Blog. Brenda Milouchev grew up in Seaside Park, NJ and hopes that the effects of the oil spill are curbed swiftly. She sends many prayers and much love to the people and animals of the Gulf Coast region.
