Taiji Dolphin Slaughter Starting September 1st

Starting September 1st, a hunt for 2,000 dolphins will take place
in Taiji, Japan inside the infamous 'Cove'. These dolphins, found by Japan going through migration routes, are corralled by fisherman then sold to aquariums around the world, and then slaughtered inside a secret cove. This must be stopped. For more info, go to SaveJapanDolphins.org!

Men with Souls We Cant See

This day was a tragic day for the dolphins, and a tragic day for those whose efforts did not prevail as one of the worst of Japans actions took place. With 20 ft storm surge waves quickly approaching the sea pens in which many dolphins were being held, hundreds - if not thousands - of people worldwide raised their voices in opposition for the dolphins to be released... for Japan to show mercy... humanity... a heart; For the multiple innocent lives of the dolphins to be saved among a country that shows no signs of letting them live. 

The waves came.. the fishermen retreated into their homes... those watching over the dolphins were forced to take shelter. The dolphins however, were not allowed the right to save themselves in their own home - The Ocean. Japan did not let their heart be a heart. My eyes are almost flooded with tears whenever I read the horrible update that deaths had taken place. It overwhelmed me how anybody can live with themselves knowing they had not even given another sentiment being the chance to live. But gave them no other choice than death. 

Many of the dolphins are believe to have not made it. They were pushed against the side of the pens and were likely drown. Please pray for the lives that were lost, and for the lives that lay ahead for those still imprisoned.

You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
