Dolphins At Shore

On a warm sunny day, there lived a dolphin named Aqua who wanted to explore the human world. Aqua didn’t know that it was dangerous up there. A river dolphin named Lavender came down from the river and had said that the dolphin could go up. So the dolphin went up and 1 minute later she found herself laying on the shore. She couldn’t move so she just laid there until a young girl named Tacitus and others noticed her and the girl called for her father who was one of the dolphin helpers. Aqua got back.

She never went back up on the shore again. As for Tacitus, she went on to help other dolphins. She earned herself a nickname called Super Dolphin Helper Daphne. Then Aqua & Daphne met again while Daphne was swimming. Aqua kept following her so they started their own company and Aqua got a nickname as well which was Dolphin Assistant Spring. As time went by they both got older and then they didn’t use their body no longer. But Daphne transferred into a dolphin while Spring became a human. So Spring got her wish later in life.

They lived happily ever after.

… from my heart … xoxo

The fear of speaking my voice sits lodged in my throat. Yet, I can do this. It is nothing compared to the years of suffering my brothers and sisters have endured.

I can no longer remain silent about matters that offend my heart and soul. I have been quiet about current events as I begin to educate myself. I am 50 years old. I have been quiet for far too long. I know that no matter what I say in this writing, something will not be said in the best way, or the wrong words will be used. However, I cannot let that delay my speaking up.

I have been walking into my own discomfort for the past 15 years. I’m prepared to walk into the discomfort of learning about systemic racism and I’ve been doing it for a week, and will continue doing it until I feel I’ve educated myself fully, spoken, and continue to live from a different place with this knowledge. I love my fellow humans and I will do this for them, for myself, and for the positive advancement of the human race. This is an act of love. For me, love is not just a feeling one has for another. Love is an action. How do we expect change to happen unless we address it within ourselves first and foremost?

I support Black Lives Matter. I support BIPOC. I support the lifting of oppression. I support justice and equality for communities of color. I support the ….. Follow link to continue reading …
