COLLECTIVE consciousness….

Joining hands.

Seems SIMPLE.

It was.

On Saturday, June 26th, we participated in Hands Across the Sand.

Hands Across the Sand is a movement made of people of all walks of life and crosses political affiliations. This movement is not about politics; it is about protection of our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, and fishing industry.  Let us share our knowledge, energies and passion for protecting all of the above from the devastating effects of oil drilling. 

We  joined hands to say NO to offshore oil drilling and Yes to Clean Energy.

It was an AWESOME opportunity to OPEN the dialogue to our kids about oil drilling,clean energy, the “spill” and what it has done to OUR EARTH.

It was AMAZING!!!

We got there at 11:30 and signed in.

We Joined hands with STRANGERS, all on the same MISSION.

To be heard.

To be “WITH THOSE” like us.

To feel like we are NOT THE ONLY ONES.

What a blessing it was to STAND UP for our beliefs…if for no other reason than to SHOW the kids that sometimes  its JUST THAT SIMPLE.

JOIN together and STAND UP.

Use your voice.

Lift your prayers.

I have no doubt that even though we did not SINGLE HANDEDLY end the problem….

I know we made a DIFFERENCE.

We were HEARD…

God was smiling.

And so were our kids.

Jana, that is by far one of the most accurate quotes I have heard for this day and age.

It is so true. Unfortunatly it's something that not enough people pay attention to.

Love it girl! You know, my husband's been gone over 2 months now helping with the clean up. While I was visiting, it was heart breaking talking to the locals about all their loss. Makes me feel a little better knowing that BP is having to pay my bills right now!
