‘Win It’ Wednesday: ‘The Cove’
The filmmakers behind The Cove showed that taking brave action for animals can make a difference. The highly acclaimed documentary—about a group of extraordinary people who aim to shine a light on Japan’s dark dolphin trade and slaughter—was just released on DVD and is the prize for this week’s “Win It” Wednesday.
Acts of compassion and courage are everyday events. At this very moment, people everywhere are sticking up for animals. Someone is confronting a neighbor about a lonely dog tied in the backyard. Another person is finally telling her beloved aunt how she truly feels about that fur coat. A high school student is telling his biology teacher that he won’t dissect a frog—no way, no how.
Now is your time to shine. Describe a courageous action that you took in behalf of animals. We’ve got three copies of The Cove to award the people who offer the most heartfelt responses. I have a feeling that the animals will win too—there’s no doubt that people who read the entries will be inspired to take action.
