My mom is a retired science teacher. She worked with Dawn (the soap) on a big thing to get animals cleaned up from oil spills years ago. She has decided that she wants to go down and see the big oil spill. I don't think that's weird because she really has a scientific mind and I can see her really being interested in all this.
However, she wants to bring some back. In her mind, it's a piece of history. Again, I can sorta understand that. It is the worst oil spill in history. Here's what's REALLY bothering me. She wants to give out little bottles to her friends. Giving them 'pieces' of history.
To me, I see all the dying birds and turtles and to give away 'souvineers" seems...irreverent.
What say you?
