NASA's Terra Satellite Captures Image of Oil Spill on May 17
For those of you who are tracking the tragic course of this Gulf oil spill, here is a startling NASA photo just released showing the extent of the spill -- and this is only what we can see from space. Imagine the water column that is poisoned by this plume of deep-sea spillage. Please keep the people, the wildlife, and the ecosystems of this fragile Gulf of Mexico in your prayers, your sermons, your active meditations, (see below), Letters to the Editor, your letters to congressional representatives. It is time to "top-kill" this well. That should have been the first, not the last, resort.
Send this NASA image around to everyone you know. Seeing is believing. And taking action!
