The Louisiana mother of six and wife of an oil worker endured both painful and rewarding experiences on her long journey. She fled from gunshots in a dark Alabama night, and hunkered down in a pickup during hail storms in Georgia. A tornado nearly wrecked their trailer in North Carolina.
Cherri and her friends walked through six states. But for Cherri, a native American member of the Houma Nation, her 34 day journey was well worth the painful blisters and sore joints she suffered along the way.
met people from all walks of life who share the same issues we all have, dealing with health effects from toxics and fighting corporations that care more about profits than people. These are issues everyone has. It not just about the wholesale nfl jerseys Gulf, but it about unity and fighting our battles together. history.

Drew, a former medic, attended to Cherri countless blisters, sometimes lancing them with a knife so she could keep going. He once slept under the tailgate of a pickup in a hail storm in Georgia so Cherri could grab some sleep in the truck. helped us out wherever we went, he says. was amazing how people from all walks of life would help us out. the time they ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere and were helped by a perfect stranger, who not only bought them gas but put them up for the night with his family. In South Carolina they were treated to a feast of oysters and Atlantic seafood. A podiatrist in North Carolina took care of Cherri painful blisters and bought her a pair of New Balance sneakers, the very ones she wore walking into DC. figure I have about 400 miles on these, she beamed.
Cherri is hoping to meet President Obama, and she planned to camp out in Lafayette Park across from the White House until she did. I met a lady who been waiting in the park to do the same thing since 1981, so I decided to move on. Cherri and Drew are off to meetings at the EPA and with people on the Hill, and then to the massive Power Shift 2011 conference in DC this weekend, where 10,000 youth from across the country will gather to talk about environmental issues. Cherri will be addressing health issues in the Gulf.

It will be a busy whirlwind of activity, followed by a week of actions, concerts and events back in the Gulf during the anniversary, memorial many are calling it, of the BP well explosion.
But what then, Cherri asks? She expects the media will abandon the Gulf again and move to other world events of the day. important we keep going. We need to raise money and awareness of health problems that continue in the Gulf. many ways, this long journey has been empowering. On a glorious day in Washington, an oil worker wife accomplished her mission to raise awareness about the aftermath of the BP oil disaster. Like the lingering toxic impacts of the oil blowout in the Gulf, Cherri journey really has just begun.20 Worst Foods in America
What appears to be two potatoes’ worth of mash is corrupted with fat, fat, and more fat. First, they’re whipped with butter and cream and then they’re blanketed with Cheddar cheese and finally pelted with bacon pieces. This would be a poor entree order. As a side, it’s just gross. Because Friday’s won’t supply nutritional information other than calories, we can’t tell you how much of a fat toll this feast will take on your gut. It can’t be light. We do know it will chew up half your calories for the day.
Mammoth pieces of fried chicken, sweet corn, mashed potatoes, and a chocolate brownie add up to what the box proudly proclaims is “1 lb” of food. Every bit of it the corn loaded with trans fat heavy partially hydrogenated oils. How much of the sludgy stuff? You don’t know because despite a 2006 FDA requirement, Hungry Man doesn’t list the trans fat content on its box length list of ingredients.

In most people’s minds, “veggie” is synonymous with “healthy,” which is what makes this sandwich such a sly beast. You might think it’s a welterweight, but topped as it is with the trio of mozzarella cheese, Cheddar cheese, and guacamole together provide a full day’s worth of fat sub fights its way into the big boys’ division. If it’s vegetables you seek at Quizno’s, it’s either the Pan Asian Chopped Salad or a fistful of fat.

Platters are meant to feed groups, not individuals. But serving size isn’t the King’s only flagrant foul. He hacks away at your arteries with buttered eggs, fried potatoes, gristly sausage, and a trans fat filled biscuit. (And we’re not even talking about the diabetic debacle that is the pile of pancakes and syrup.) You’d better have run 12 miles before queuing up for this breakfast at BK. That’s what it would take for the average person to burn through this platter’s 1,300 calories.

Used to be that only carnivals served ill advised food mash ups. No longer. KFC’s 2010 release of the Double Down, a sandwich of bacon and cheese nestled between two fried chicken strips, opened food innovation doors that should have remained closed. Friendly’s has taken up the audacious challenge with its new riff on the basic patty melt. A galling use of grilled cheese sandwiches as buns forms what appears to be three full meals stacked together. Not surprisingly, then, this burger is also loaded with more fat than three people should eat in one sitting. 15. Worst Salad: California Pizza Kitchen Waldorf Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

After we castigated its Santa Fe Chopped Salad for years, TGI Friday’s finally removed them from its menu. Unfortunately, there are plenty of unsettling salads to take its place. None are worse than this tangled heap of trouble from CPK. And the potential it had! The first half of this menu description reads like nutritional poetry greens, fresh grapes, sliced apples it stops there. Sugar coated walnuts, Gorgonzola, and a flood of blue cheese dressing all conspire to saddle this salad with more calories than any of CPK’s whole pizzas.Some phrases create barriers to communications. “Intrinsically evil,” for example, may earn an A on a theology paper but can merit an F in human discourse. Which drives home the message: “Abortion is wrong because it snuffs out innocent life” or “abortion is intrinsically evil”? One tells you what really happened. A second example of church speak is the word “presbyterate,” which emphasizes the distance between priests and people. There’s more warmth in speaking about “our priests.” “Presbyterate” sounds pejorative, as in “Listen, you presbyterate!”
God’s love is a freebie; you can’t earn it, you just have to accept it. Which sentence conveys that? “God’s love is infinite and you have inherent value” or “You’re more important than the sparrows who only have to exist for God to feed them”? The image gives you something to hold on to, even if you don’t like worms.
It’s like going to a party. You can’t sit in a corner and not converse. If you want to make a statement to which no one can reply, buy a billboard. Social media is electronic conversation. To engage in it you need to be willing to listen to others and converse with them.
5. Social media sometimes calls for a suit of armor.
Anonymity lets incivility into the living room. Wearing emotional armor, you can handle disagreement, not take it personally, and learn from it. Social media is not for the thin skinned.
6. Use the delete button if comments cross the line of decency, but, hopefully, not often.
Sometimes for your own sake you just have to say, “So long.” You don’t need to be imprisoned on a social media site. But don’t walk away too quickly.
7. Spread Catholicism’s fun parts.
Talk about saints, like St. Nicholas, who came up with bags of gold for a woman’s dowry, or St. Teresa of Avila who, when exasperated by life’s trials, advised God, “If this is how you treat your friends, no wonder you have so few!” Talk about good sermons you’ve heard, favorite hymns. Catholicism is warm, filled with stories, meaningful devotions and other down to earth ways to convey the faith. It is not heady. Reaching into the heavens for language can make it hell for listeners.
8. Remember rules are changing.
I felt strange the first time I sent a condolence message via the Internet. Then I realized that my friend had announced her father’s death in an e mail message. I could either wait until I had time to find the proper stationery and mail the note, or I could respond in her time of need. The Internet makes simple human gestures easier.
9. Remember web messages live forever.
The warning to not write anything you wouldn’t want to see on the front of the newspaper is more pertinent now. A picture of you hoisting a beer seems like a good idea until you find someone’s researching you online for a responsible position.
