Hector's and Maui's Dolphin SOS
I just finished reading this book, In The Heart Of the Sea.
AND OMgosh it's a signed copy from the author himself! Nathaniel Philbrick!!!! He calls me, "A Lover of the Sea!" Yay!
(Thanks also to a Nantucket friend, Scott Leonard! We met this summer, a blog post on that trip and how I felt about the people of Nantucket coming soon.)
I thought the book was a tragic story with a lot of scary and sad parts. To me, the whale represented revenge against the people that have destroyed them and their journey. In his way, the whale was fighting back.
Ever since I started fighting for the Maui's dolphins, this journey has taken me really far. I've met a lot of amazing people and learned a lot of amazing things. I'm thankful and I continue to wish that people wouldn't destroy helpless animals. They didn't do anything to us but people still continue to destroy them.
There's even a movie coming out in December - I hope my mom lets me see it. :)
