THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.
When I was younger, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer. I wanted to work with dolphins. Dolphins were and still are to me ,magical animals.I was visiting all the marine parks , buying all kind of things thinking that I was actually helping the dolphins and doing the right thing.
So of course later, my dream was to swim with dolphins.I actually did it.
I was on holidays in Dominican Republic.The dolphins were in a little swimming pool.
While we were waiting in the swimming pool for others to swim with them, one dolphin was coming and biting us.
They were skinny and so miserable. How cruel is that?
Was it a dream? certainly not! Not for the dolphins. It was a nightmare and the word is weak. For me? seeing them miserable in this tiny tank was breaking my heart.
Later on, I was taking my children to marine parks thinking that it was education.Seriously how stupid was all this?
At this time I didn’t know better. I really wish I knew what I know now. Education is so important.
THOSE ARE THE THINGS NOT TO DO. NEVER EVER AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I DID AND NO LONGER DO.I WISH I NEVER DID.
