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.

Not only can I not write about it I can't read about it - the creeping death of it, the fact that fixing the leak today does nothing towards the already done damage. I can't even think about it. I am glad I am not part of any group trying to think of answers because it would break my mind.
