Alphabe Thursday - U is for ...


It's time once again for my favorite class, Alphabe-Thursday. Mrs. Matlock has assigned the letter U for our essays this week. Watching the events in the gulf unfold, I knew right away what I was going to post.

U is for

Unconscionable



Unforgivable


Unbelievable


Unfathomable

Untrustworthy



Unemployed



Unrecoverable? I pray not....



My hear
t breaks for the innocent creatures killed by this disaster. And for the people of the Gulf Coast, who were just beginning to recover from the devastation of the last 5 years. Please keep these good, strong and faithful people in your prayers.

Oh,Kat...My heart is just breaking. I could cry! You chose the perfect pictures, the perfect words and the absolutely perfect song! I am so sad for all of the people affected, their beautiful pristine beaches and the helpless creatures! And,of course, they are in my prayers. Great post!....hugs...Debbie

This whole thing is so horrible! I feel so so sad for all the creatures who have died and are injured.
And also for the people who live and work along the Gulf too.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Fabulous post, kathy --you said it all!
I can not believe that 11 men dies in this disater and now we will have to deal with the the destruction of precious shoreline and wildlife and sealife will suffer. :-(

Kathysue said...

Kat, everytime I watch the news with all the poor wildlife covered in oil, I ask God to forgive us for what we have done to our beautiful Earth. So sad and hopefully Mother Earth can recover this horrible crime that has been done to her. I think this post should be sent to the news stations. It is perfectly articulated in word and in image, Kathysue

Terra said...

UNBELIEVABLE- hands down the best U post I have seen. This is so tragic.

Short and Sweet said...

So appropriate and eye-opening. My heart aches for the innocent wildlife and the residents of the gulf coast. Thank you for such a vivid reminder of such a devastating disaster.

Natasha said...

This was a very powerful post. I feel so sorry for the people whose lives have been so negatively effected by this disaster. So sad...

Thanks for this thought-provoking post.

Best wishes,

My name is PJ. said...

This is the toughest post to read this week, but it is also my very favorite.

You should go to the head of the class!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I can't even talk about it, Kat! And to see those pelicans in that mess... grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

I pray that the Lord will help the people in charge find a solution to stop this disaster. I hate this SO much. As a Floridian, I particularly hate this because anything that happens to our coastline is detrimental to the state's economy. And I feel so sorry for the people and animals in Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana who are victims of this nightmare. I pray it's over SOON!

XO,

Sheila

Carol said...

Your U post is powerful...and I have so much love for the gulf...every summer we would visit my Grandmother down there. I can't watch anything about it...it pissed me off. Thank you!

Riet said...

OMG this is so sad. We see this on the news and all feel so terrible about this disaster.

Jenny said...

What a powerful and thought-provoking stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "U"!

Your message is one that needs to be seen by so many people in "power"!

With so few words and pictures you really made us feel the devastation of this catastophre!

A+

Traci said...

I live in South Louisiana & know the fiance of one of the 11 killed. It's an awful, awful tragedy. I think one of the out of work fisherman said it best "I understand accidents happem & I can forgive an accident. I can't forgive the how it's being handled".

As sad as your post was, it speaks volumes!

Shugee @ Blue Heron Cottage said...

Kat, I became a follower of yours with this post alone.

I did a post last Sunday about my heart being heavy thinking about all of this. It's beyond heartbreaking, our oceans were polluted enough before all of this and now...

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Wow, so absolutely to the point. I used to live in FL and I am saddened for the folks who are facing the destruction of their beautiful beaches....

Mary said...

Beautiful job summing up a horrific situation.

Pondside said...

It's almost too horrible to grasp. I keep on thinking of the endless lines of fishing boats we saw when we were down on the Louisiana coast and I pray for the people whose livelihoods are in jeopardy.

Linda said...

The photos and your words say more then BP has been able to in weeks!! I am so sad about this. We can do better then this to take care of our planet!

Brenda said...

Makes my heart ache.

Sarah said...

I think this is the best post for the letter U. You captured the essence of how so many of us feel about this tragedy. Bravo! Well done! ~ Sarah

jen said...

Best U post. I don't know how to fix it, but I wish they could find a way . . .Thanks.

easternsparkle said...

One word - ugh! We've watched this unfold on TV, it is unbeleivable that with all the technolgies we have these days that this wasn't prevented or at the very least repaired sooner.

Cheryl said...

Tough post to read and to view. You captured the devastation and the daunting task ahead with both your photos and words. It feels like we need a miracle to recover.

Jingle said...

perfect u post,
unbelievable and stunning...

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Your post covered it exactly. When I see the many sopping up the oil with those special cloths...it seems like such an impossible task!

Blessings & Aloha!
(29 years of marriage to your best friend is a wonderful blessing :o) thank you for stopping by!

Nina said...

I am viewing your post with tears rolling down my cheeks. I live on the Alabama Gulf Coast. As if hurricanes aren't enough to deal with, now we have this tragedy. Believe me when I say that this event has affected EVERYONE in coastal Alabama, Mississipi, Louisiana, and the Florida panhandle. Our way of life will never be the same.

Susan said...

I agree this should be sent to news stations...perfect public service announcement!

That turtle picture tortured me.
