One Of The Coolest Sixteen Year Olds

I know, I know. This isn't book related. But it means a lot to me so I'm sharing it, because that's what I do when something is important to me. I've told you before you MUST watch "The Cove". Not nearly enough people know or care about what's going on around the world and that makes my heart break a little bit.
I follow Sea Shepherd on Facebook because I fully support their cause (and I'm obsessed with watching "Whale Wars" on Animal Planet) and today I noticed their status. So I clicked on it and discovered this amazing blog and this amazing girl. You can check out her site over here.
She's 16. And over in Japan watching some horrific stuff going on and she blogs about it daily. She's brilliant and I'm totally in awe of her. At sixteen I was focused on whatever NSYNC cd has just come out and whether the boy I liked had any idea I existed. But this girl is out there in the world bringing a really important cause to light while getting high school credit for it. I'm just in awe. It probably helps that her father is a member of Sea Shephard but that doesn't negate just how amazing she is.
Anyways, have a look at her blog, watch The Cove, become aware, and do something about it. Even if it's just passing on a link. Knowledge is the first step in bringing about change.
