At a very young age, I fell in love with Killer Whales. Sounds oxymoronic, right? Wrong. Killer Whales, also known as Orca Whales, are historically friendly, gentle and loving creatures that live with their families for the entirety of their lives and, when in the wild, have blissfully swum alongside humans, with no wild whale-human violence ever being reported.
Many films have made me cry. My eyes watered during “The Notebook,” tears fell at the end of “Titanic” and my salty lips quivered during “The Color Purple.” But none of these classic films compare to the full body quake I experienced during “12 Years a Slave.”
Sprinkled throughout the crowd of 14,000 screaming Taylor Swift fans were illuminated signs covered in various combinations of glitter, Christmas lights and beloved lyrics.
