I know that I give links to videos both my blogs, 'They Need A Voice' and 'Sharks Need Help!!!'. I understand that some people would prefer to avoid them, but it is hard to make a difference when you don't know what's happening. Videos make me terribly sad, but the footage from The Cove was the first thing that I'd ever seen relating to my blogs, and it changed my life. Now, I'm an activist for my ocean friends that I've always loved. If you don't want to watch a video that I post a link to, please really try to gain the courage to do so. I didn't want to watch The Cove because I was worried about it depressing me, but my parents thought is would be inspirational for me. I never thought that it would change me, but it truly did. It made me cry, but sadness it sometimes what it takes to inspire people. I can still not stand to watch those Humane Society and ASPCA commercials, but those animals are getting tons and tons of help.
If you do choose to watch my video links, they will make definitely make you sad if you have a heart unlike all those scums that murder animals. And if they bother you a lot, don't just try to pretend that it's fake (something that I do sometimes) because sadly it is all too real.

Yesterday morning, I went to the movie theaters with my mom and my best friend to see the movie Dolphin Tale. I have to say it was a touching, amazing movie. I'm not just saying that because I love dolphins, but it really was wonderful. My mom actually cried tears of happiness in the end when it showed real footage, and my friend and I both almost did. It is a movie that I am going to have to buy on DVD. I give it five out of five stars, or ten out of ten. In other words, it deserves as high as it can get. I know that my blog is all about not having dolphins in captivity, but in a case like Winter's, it'd be cruel to throw her in the ocean. In the movie, all three of the dolphins in the Clearwater Marine Aquarium are ones that were rescued. One of them is deaf, so she can't find her food. It'd be cruel to throw her in the ocean too. If a dolphin is permanently disabled where it can't survive in the wild, it needs to be in an aquarium or other marine park. If I'm ever close to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida, I'd love to see Winter there.
