A Good Day

When I woke up this morning I was already trembling as to what my day would bring, thinking back of the slaughter I had just witness the day before. The sounds, the cries, their tales splashing, the banging from the boats was burned into my mind. I could only hope for a better day. Wow, was it ever!
Again I was out at lookout point with fellow guardian Bob. By 9:30am the banger boats were returning to the harbor, empty handed. Hooray! That in itself would have made for an awesome day, but things just kept getting better.
A lot of us on the ground have been keeping quiet about the presence of Ric O’barry, purely for security reasons. I had the honor of meeting him right before he departed Ki Katsuura. He is a wonderful gracious man who I admire so much and to be able to stand next to him, well lets just say, priceless. Especially meeting him here in Japan. It will be a moment I will never forget. Thank you Ric for opening my eyes to this atrocity, for inspiring me to do something about it, and finally for being so kind and wonderful.
