Growing up in the suburbs of Baltimore, I never really spent too much time around great bodies of water. When it came to the ocean, my stance, like most of those around me, was out of sight, out of mind. Although I’d learned in school about how the ocean, which provides us with water and food, was in danger, the thought of sacrificing time and effort to save the ocean hardly seemed like my calling. Perhaps the task just felt too vast and foreign. Besides, what could little ol’ me do from my land-locked house in Baltimore suburbia?
