Here it is, the nicest day of the summer, my son and I walk down to the beach for a swim only to be told there has been a sewage leak into our ocean.
In this day and age of technology, how can this happen? Why did this happen? It makes me sick to think how inconsiderate we, as humans, are when it comes to our garbage and sewage.
I wonder why the powers that be thought it wise that sewage could be dumped so close to the ocean. Or better yet, in the ocean. When there is a plastic island the size of Texas floating around the ocean and as big, corporate oil companies keep dumping into our ocean, when are we, as a collective, going to stop the mass destruction of one of our precious, most beautiful resources?
I am saddened that the officials we elect are only out to make a quick buck while the rest of us suffer. Is anyone else bothered by this?
It makes me want to run for mayor, because the mayor we have and the city council are completely useless with no ideas on how to better our amazing city.
