Please pray for the Louisiana coast!

This picture in today's paper made me very sad.

Caption: An oil soaked pelican takes flight after Louisiana Fish and Wildlife employees tried to corral him on an island in Barataria Bay just inside the the coast of Louisiana, Sunday, May 23. The island, which is home to hundreds of brown pelican nests as well at terns, gulls and roseate spoonbills, is impacted by oil from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.

Here is the beginning of the article "State not going to Wait": ON BARATARIA BAY. (AP) -- "Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says the state is not waiting for federal approval to begin building sand barriers to protect the coastline from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Jindal's defiant comments Sunday came as oil pushed at least 12 miles into the heart of Louisiana's marshes. Two major pelican rookeries are now awash in crude."

It's so sad & terrible. Please pray for our coastline, for our governor & for all the men & women down there working so hard to clean up that oil spill.
