Hold hands at your local beach to show unity against offshore drilling

Every day you turn on the news these days, you’re greeted with sickening photographs of the BP oil spill. Not only the reddish sheen on top of the surface, but black blobs marring white beaches, dying birds and dolphins and people directly impacted by the ecological disaster – whose lives will never be the same.

You know that what is happening is beyond a tragedy.  We don’t know the eventual impact either because the oil continues to gush out of the ocean floor with no end in sight.  Sadly, its not the first time a massive oil spill has destroyed eco-systems and lives.  Yet, could it be the last?

On Saturday, June 26, 2010, “Hands Across the Sand,” founded by Florida surfer and restauranteur Dave Rauschkolb, encourages you to join together with friends, family and neighbors in a show of solidarity against offshore drilling.  All you have to do is head to the closest beach and hold hands with everyone else gathered there at noon local time.  The 15-minute, peaceful demonstration will be all the more powerful with you in the picture.

Can you help garner the attention of lawmakers concerning offshore drilling?  Can you be a part of the movement that successfully prevents future disasters like the BP oil spill?

You don’t have to live near a beach, or even in the U.S. to take part in Hands Across the Sand.  Check out the group’s website for more details and become a fan on Facebook and/or follow it on Twitter.

Let’s send a powerful message against offshore drilling and in favor of clean energy development on June 26 at noon!
