Sometimes, a Whale Dies
Jonathan Foley

“You may wonder why anyone in their right mind would spend their day — especially as an unpaid volunteer — dissecting a decomposing whale. After all, it’s not the most pleasant experience. The stink alone makes this a fairly traumatic experience.

One word: Love.”

Those who lack Love may never understand the force that drives you, and your friends, to do the work others run from. Volunteerism of this nature takes grit and I applaud you for your efforts…and your Love.

Beautifully written.
