I made this because I feel saddend over what had happed that terrible day. I'm Irish and I deeply respect the Americans and those who passed away that day. I pray for those people who risked there lives to save others. I made this short poem when I was about 10 (I'm 18 now). Here is is:
Some of the other locals in our area, including myself, took a little time to create a few somewhat humorous pictures on effects from the oil-spill to show what the beaches in our area are looking like. It is not a pretty site! Lord I hope this is fixed soon...

Let´s Wikiattack! Cú Chulainn ([kuːˈxʊlɪnʲ] ( listen), Irish for "Culann's Hound"), also spelled Cúchulainn, Cúchulain, Cú Ċulainn, Cúchullain or Cú Chulaind, is an Irish mythological hero who appears in the stories of the Ulster Cycle, as well as in Scottish and Manx folklore. The son of the god Lug and Deichtine (sister of Conchobar mac Nessa), he was originally named Sétanta.
He gained his better-known name as a child after he killed Culann's fierce guard-dog in self-defence, and offered to take its place until a replacement could be reared. At the age of seventeen he defended Ulster single-handedly against the armies of queen Medb of Connacht in the epic Táin Bó Cúailnge ("Cattle Raid of Cooley"). It was prophesied that his great deeds would give him everlasting fame, but that his life would be a short one. This is the reason why he is compared to the Greek hero Achilles. He is known for his terrifying battle frenzy or ríastrad (similar to a berserker's frenzy, though sometimes called a "warp spasm" because of the physical changes that take place in the warrior), in which he becomes an unrecognisable monster who knows neither friend nor foe. He fights from his chariot, driven by his loyal charioteer Láeg, and drawn by his horses, Liath Macha and Dub Sainglend. In more modern times, Cú Chulainn is often referred to as the "Hound of Ulster".
It's already been a tradition to send out my own Christmas cards for a few years now. I started in 2005, so this would be my fourth card. Previous cards featured my characters from Trio Solution and yours truly.
This year, I thought it was about time to go with something a little bit more generic. The obvious choice was Santa Claus, the generic personification of the holiday season. Sure, I could had done something with Jesus or something, but I'm sure that some of the recipients would be kind of weided out, to say at least.
I started out with Santa as a UPS delivery man, but I just couldn't get it right. After a few tries, I decided to try a different angle and thought "instead of making him lame, why not make him awesome". So I did.
If you're in some last-minute need of Christmas cards, this is available as a print.
