“I like to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to a cause so that I have more impact.
My goal is to shed light on the beauty of the ocean and how important it is for our
planet.” ~Hayden Panettiere

Saturday, May 16th between 10am-5pm you may be wondering through the street at Cape Fear Blvd admiring the many vendors participating in the Carolina Beach Street Arts Festival and enjoying the entertainment.  I hope you  are.   At 11:30 I hope to see you headed to the ocean along with the others who are showing their opposition to seismic testing and off shore drilling in our ocean off our coast.  
Saturday’s event called Hands Across the Sand is officially being held in Kure Beach 11:30am - 12:30 pm and in Wrightsville Beach later  in the day at Johnnie Mercer's Pier Access 16, 6:00 - 7:00 pm, conveniently for those who cannot make the earlier one.   
The Hands Mission Statement is, “To bring together like-minded individuals and organizations with the conviction to organize a Global movement to promote a clean energy future for our earth and end our dependence on dirty fuel sources.These gatherings will bring thousands of American and Global citizens to our beaches and cities and will draw metaphorical and actual lines in the sand; human lines in the sand against the threats Fossil Fuels pose to our present and future planet. To convince our State Legislators, Governors, Congress and President Obama and World leaders to adopt policies encouraging the growth of clean and renewable energy sources in place of oil and coal.”
A conscientious group of caring local residents have chosen to show their continued opposition to offshore oil drilling by organizing a local Hands Across the Sand event and joining in the international effort.  You can read more information at www.handsacrossthesand.org.  Just come out and join hands on the beach - say no to oil on our coast, yes to clean energy!
“You can add your name to the growing list of participants on Cape Fear Surfrider's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Cape.Fear.Surfrider.Foundation?fref=ts and
Follow us on Twitter @nooilatthebeach,” says the ‘Local Hands Across the Sand Organizing Committee.’
As they say, “Now is the time for America and global leaders to join hands and steer our energy policy away from our dependence on fossil fuels and into the light of clean energy and renewables.”  I’ll see you on Saturday.  xo mo
