Image of the Week:
In 2010, BP f-d up. They caused irreparable damage to an already fragile ecosystem. In the confused efforts to “clean up” after the tragedy, thousands of men and women were recruited to assist in the effort. There were transients looking for a quick buck, there were out of work fishermen trying to make ends meet and there were do-gooders trying to make a difference. The work was hard, but the pay was good.
Tom was a traveler. He arrived in Grand Isle, Louisiana with his nephew to work on the cleanup crews. Each day, they would come back to their small camper tired and dirty, but with that look of accomplishment. They were happy to be working. And as long as a person is willing to work for their living, no matter how crappy the job, I respect them.
