Sad, mad, frustrated, worried about the Gulf oil leak?

Yeah, me, too. "Obsessed" would likely be a better word. Or "sick with grief and anxious about the future of an ocean that has been ruined not just by corporate mismanagement and a lack of government oversight but also thanks to our ridiculous and gluttonous consumption of resources" (Okay, that was 37 words.)

Anyway, wouldn't it be nice to hold hands on Saturday with some other people who feel sad and upset and angry and freaked out by the whole thing, too?

I think so.

Here's part of a press release I got about the Hands Across the Sand event happening Saturday morning:

Concerned Citizens will Join Hands on the "Old" Alameda Walking Bridge over
the Rio Grande- Our Direct Link to the Gulf of Mexico

WHAT: Local "Hands Across the Sand" gathering in solidarity with events
around the country to raise awareness about the dangers of offshore drilling
and call on leaders to end our oil dependence and move America into a clean
energy future.

WHO: Representatives from Alaska Wilderness League, Audubon New Mexico,
Environment New Mexico, New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light, New Mexico
Wilderness Alliance, Sierra Club and other concerned New Mexicans.

WHEN: Saturday, June 26 at 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: "Old" Alameda Walking Bridge- http://bit.ly/abqhands for a map.
Parking is on the west side of the river on the north side of Alameda.

Citizens should get there by 11am - press was invited to be there at 1130 after everyone shows up. Definitely come out and show your support for clean energy and a resounding NO to oil drilling.
