"David, Kindra and their neighbors have been there from Day 1. And still the onslaught continues. Every day, the oil comes in with the tide. It spreads up into the marsh grass, coating it.

Now, they're faced with having their electricity turned off, and making decisions as to whether they should be food or medicine for their kids."
