Oil Spill Catastrophe!

By Anna M.
Maryland, Age 10

12 people have not been found since the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. People were casually on the beach when-suddenly- they saw flames. An oil rank in the Gulf had erupted into flames! Oil was everywhere! it wasa sad beginning of April. And now,3 months later, people stil haven't found all twelve of the missing people. The oil that was dumped from the tank is still not cleaned up, and it is terrible for the animals. Will the Gulf of Mexico get cleaned up?
