Lesson From A Teenager
You would be amazed on how much impact a singe person can have. Take for example Elora Malama West. At the age of 15 she was invited by Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd to visit Taiji Japan to put pressure on local fisherman who were capturing and slaughtering dolphins. During her stay in Taiji she started a blog A Teenage Activist which became so popular it has many subscribers and nearly 100,000 daily visitors.
Because of her blog, Elora was able to attract volunteers to join the fight in Taiji and there was even one man that came all the way from Thailand to assist. This man was made aware of her story through a school teacher in Thailand that shared her inspiring story.
So, just remember that even a single voice, single act of kindness, single donation, or single inspiring story can end up doing so much more that you might have initially imagined.
We have chosen to not include any of the common photos that are out there covering this horrific event in Taiji. However, if you would like to see just how bad it can be we recommend that you visit Google Images.
