Each of us living on the east Coast has at some time sat in awe as we have witnessed a whale perhaps more playing in the ocean . I know personally that when I take a walk on the beach I am already feeling so privileged to live in such a beautiful place, then when all of a sudden you notice a whale often with its baby rise out of the ocean..I feeling truly blessed. I know this is how the majority of us feel, therefore to be aware of the cruelty that is happening to these beautful animals and not take a stand would be somehow criminal. They can' t speak for them selves therefore we have to speak for them. Please sign the petition . remember the quote "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing"
