the BP oil spill

Cherie Priest says it all about the BP oil spill, a disaster of such magnitude I couldn’t hear anything about it for two weeks after Young Indiana was born because just knowing it had happened/was happening was enough to break my fragile-from-exhaustion mental state. I can still barely stand to hear about it, which is why I’m grateful for Cherie’s beautiful, poignant response: I couldn’t have written it myself.
