It is shown that natural, ocean water provides healing properties to cetaceans. After being in chlorinated water in a concrete box, mentally and physically, cetaceans grow weaker. They do not face the currents and natural flow of their meant to be habitat in captivity; it is about the equivalent to someone never exercising, or walking on a treadmill their entire life. Lack of exercise causes depression, stress, illness, and boredom.
An argument against the idea of bringing captive cetaceans into ocean water is that they will become sick. Yes, there is a possibility of illness, but everyday we are up against diseases spread through the air, whether you go to school, swimming pools, bathrooms, or anywhere where there are bacteria, (which is EVERYWHERE). Now, this problem is avoided with sea pens. Sea pens allow the animals to adapt and become immune to their new surroundings. If they become ill, they receive medical attention.
Illness happens in marine parks, too. People seem to forget that many of the animals become sick due to reasons from being in captivity. This can include illness carried by mosquitos, (the reason this would only be spread in captivity is because the animals drift at the surface so often out of boredom/stress). Pneumonia, a sickness that procaps use to put down the idea of rehabilitation and release since Keiko died from it, is the most commonly spread disease among CAPTIVE orcas. Many have died in captivity from it, as well.

Keiko 2002 : People wanted him to be free! “No more entertainment!” they said. But in the end, even in the wild, he was still an entertainment! People just didn’t realize that he was sick and a few short months later he died because he felt lonely, he let himself die. People wanted Keiko to return to the wild so much that they didn’t think it was the worst choice to make for him. That’s the difference between an Orca that was raised in a Park and a full grown Orca adult put in a park! entertainment and affection from crowd it was all that Keiko knew, he was raised by humans nutured by them, and you expect him to be okay all alone by himself in the ocean? No! It was not okay to put him in there! Full grown adult orcas can be put back in the wild because they were born there they know how to be with pods they know how to hunt for food or how to defend themselves but Keiko did not! How would you react if all your life someone did everything for you and one day they put you in a forrest empty, without anyone, without any knowledge of HOW to do things by yourself ? Think about that before you put an innocent life in a pool for you own god damned entertainment! -Cindy Garneau 2014
Once there was a young girl, broken by a man, she lived every moment, without him and every birthday she waited, she waited for him to call but he never did. She thought hopefully someday he will come, take her in his arms and say he loved her, but he never did. The young girl never understood why? Why would the man who helped gave her life also took it away day by day. At first she taught he was busy, every reasons in the world was possible, never the truth, because she had hope, she was a child she dreamed , hope. What is hope? When you’re a child hope is easy to feel, it’s natural, when you grow up, hope is desperation it’s a lie, but it feeds you, everyday, every minutes. So she hoped because it was the last thing to do. Four years of age and already a broken heart. At that age you don’t understand the feeling but you feel it and it hurts. With all the hurt she slowly felt anger getting a way into her and it bleeded through her entire body, her innocent young body became a grave and inside the grave was her hope, buried deep in the dark under her young heart. The girl grew to let the fear take charge, so week and desperate but hope wasn’t there anymore, her fear was leading the way now. She started to hate who she was she hated men, every single one of them, until she was old enough to love them, trying to find Him in them, she was naive and they all knew, it showed in her aura, you could smell it at a hundred feet away , she believed every lie every touch like it meant something like it was real. Bits by bits she died, heartless, cold, suffering, she suffered every moment every breath was a deadline. Betrayal, sadness, bruises, scars. She was molded by it. Pain, her greatest ally never quit her. Then thinking every step was the end, there, across the table she was sitting at, she saw Him, not the one who broke her years ago, but the one who would heal her, the one who would save her. But then she knew nothing about it, she had no idea what was waiting over there, so she went and talk to him, her walls shattered around her, warmth began to envelope her body and melted the ice holding her heart, her eyes turned back to a bright blue instead of a light grey, you could see her being reborn, she smiled, a big wide smile, she did not fear anymore and she saw the life she could have, happy, finally a happy ending to her suffering, she was not cold anymore, the pieces that died inside her slowly fixed themselves and a tiny, yet, warm spark flew inside her, for the first time in what seemed like an eternity, Hope found its way back to her. Betrayal died along with Sadness, bruises, scars, pain and desperation, hope wasn’t a lie anymore it wasn’t desperation it was there, easy to feel, truthful, real, she felt like a child again with a real childhood, happiness flowing around her like the light of the warm sun, no suffering no waiting, just breathing love, bleeding love, surrounded by love, molded by hope and she said to herself, the greatest thing you will ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.
This year, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Oscars. While every girl I knew squealed and asked what I was wearing I was riddled with anxiety. The day before the Oscars I had a fitting with Dior where I got to try on some beautiful dresses. I…
