On the news this morning the report was given that during Obama's speech this evening (8 PM eastern time) that he will make the promise to restore the Gulf Coast to better than it was before the spill.
But the bigger question is: What about the people whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered by this spill? Are they going to be left homeless, uninsured, unemployed, unable to make a living, pay their basic bills, or put their children through college?
Yes the environment is important. Tourism is important. But the innocent people who live by the Gulf are more important.
Let's see what our President has to say about our people.
