Everything Is Dead
Not one living thing in our beautiful, vast river is alive. No one near my home has spotted a single living creature in the water for more than two days. Everything is dead.
I have personally communicated with dozens of people who are suffering from the toxic aerosols from this event. It's mostly respiratory problems, shortness of breath, asthma, sinus problems. Conjunctivitis, dizziness, and nausea, too. Pets are affected also if they've been near the river. I'm heartbroken. I'm sick. It's World Water Day and I'm crying saltwater tears for our planet.... I will keep reporting as I learn more about what has happened here in my formerly beautiful world. I know many of you are suffering in similar circumstances. We all need to work together to keep this planet together. What a mess, and what a job. Through tears, let's have hope and work together!
