I have always had tremendous respect for animals. Goes way beyond me being an animal lover, I don't feel that there is much difference between us. Life is life, and it deserves respect.
I watched this documentary on HBO this morning:
Its about a group of people that worked to save brown pelicans after the BP oil spill. I loved the way they shot it. It wasn't about politics, it didn't focus on blame - it showed extremely compassionate human beings working to assist a species that was not in a position to help itself.
So touching and inspiring to know that people like this exist. :)
