Aloha'oe,
 I am writing as a plea for help , tonight as I watched the Hawaiian nightly news broadcast, telling me that for the next five years the Navy will indeed be using Sonar testing and millions of whales and dolphins will be killed , maimed for life  and deafened, along with all other sea life mammals ! This is what the Navy believes is a fair trade for USA safety! I can not believe that this country should or would be so inhumane to do such a thing No! I don't believe the lives of our sea life should be threatened so that America can feel safe from war threats THAT IS NOT A TRADE-OFF I agree with and pray that the human beings of this country will agree. Do we all want to live in a world where  all of our beautiful sea life are killed , maimed for life  ! Do you wish to raise your children in a world where there are no more whales and the dolphins and whales that do survive are blinded , deaf and  suffering a horrible life? I can't believe that people will sit back and allow this inhumane thing to happen in our Hawaiian waters : the use of high frequency underwater sound for testing in Hawaii, the California and Atlantic Coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico. According to their estimates it will deafen more over a million whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more over the next 5 years. Whales and dolphins depend on sound to navigate and live. The effects of these sonar test is unspeakable , And the Navy feels that it is needed for our safety . I am asking everyone who reads this please share with your friends , and please help me stop this terrible thing from happening in our life time,Mahalo Nui Loa, Virginia Leigh Brandford
