Happy feet

Have you ever watched the movie Happy feet?

Well if you don’t than you can surely find a description of the film on the Internet. Theoretically it is a film for children, and I think many people think that the statement of the film is to tell children ( and their parents, too) that it is okay to be different from the others and that no one ever should bring you down because of who you are.

But I am really sure there is a second statement placed in the film, that is for us, who have grown out of childhood. The penguins in the film are near to starve because someone or something steels there fish. They have no explanation for that, they are after all, only penguins. But the fact is that humans, we, steel there fish and would make them starve to death, if Mumble, the main character in the film would not rescue them, and make the humans stop fishing. But in real life there are no penguins, who tell us to stop fishing, because they will starve. In real life we often do not think about where our food comes from before we put it in our mouths. In real life we destroy our world by for example fishing the fish that animals like  penguins or dolphins need to survive. Many people may think that they do not care if the dolphins or the penguins do die. But in the end, it affects every single person on this planet. Between three and 130 species die out for ever EVERY DAY! Can you imagine that? I mean you can say: What do I care if some species of frogs die out in the rain forest? But these frogs were more than just frogs. They were a part of the circle of life and if we keep on pulling things out of this circle, one day it is going to crush down. And that day, we will all wish that we would have taken better care of our world.
