There is no point in pretending to make their prison more pleasant in order to draw attention away from the issue and thereby continue to earn money at the cost of the suffering and the freedom of these wildlife animals: the only acceptable dolphinarium is a dolphinarium that is shut down -- once and for all.
I learned something on that sad day on the 11th of September 15 years ago. During that time of turmoil, fear, sadness, and terror, no matter where we live in this wide country, we were collectively and suddenly New Yorkers. Everybody was on one side...the emotion and caring for the people of this horrific scene was to a person the same.
I am deeply concerned about the upcoming presidential election given the scale and complexity of the challenges facing our country and the wider world. Issues such as climate change, global terror, gun violence, the refugee crisis, and the growing social and economic divide, have led to a very negative public mood in the United States.
