How beautiful it is to see a smile on the face of a child of this city after the catastrophic earth quake and tsunami that hit them hard eight month ago. Thanks my friend for this post. I hope all Japanese will overcome that catastrophe and smiles will be drawn of every body's face.

I wish I felt more empathy toward Japanese (and other Asians), even with heart warming article.
But the pain and suffering of whales and dolphins and other animals weights more than their accomplishments.

That's what entertainment is about. Humans entertaining humans and not animal abuse by making them perform unnatural tricks.
