The program so far has been amazing. We met a lot of new interesting people who are amazing and supportive. Last week we went to Whiting, Indiana. BP is a major company there and they fill the air with many pollutants. When we got there I could barely breathe. I couldn’t imagine living in those terrible conditions. Who knows how many health problems that could cause.


Billows of flaming waste

disintegrating into the air

and choking the hearts of humans.

Homes decaying under the weight of industry;

the weight of Man

When did Homeland

become Wasteland?

When did systems start devouring souls?
