Haruki swam faster in an effort to escape that mind-splitting sound. It seemed like there was no escape. He kept going. He was running out of air. He would have to surface to breathe. As he changed directions and went upward, the noise became louder for a moment. However, it gradually got quieter as he neared the surface. He broke through the water and greedily gasped the air. Above the water, the noise was almost gone. Although it was dangerous for a dolphin to get too close to the shore, Haruki was willing to try anything. As he headed towards the beach, other dolphins began popping their heads above water and swimming in the same direction. Too much sun could overheat the dolphins and cause severe damage to their bodies. However, the sound below the water’s surface was maddening. “Look! Dolphins! There must be 30 or more! What in the world?” Matt exclaimed to his shipmate. “I bet it’s the sonar. I’ve heard of people protesting the Navy’s use of sonar equipment. They say it drives dolphins, whales, and other sea animals crazy. Maybe they’re right. I’ve never seen that many dolphins swim towards shore.” Tomas offered the best explanation he could. Matt headed for the phone. “Captain Rogers, Sir, the sonar is causing 30 or more dolphins to swim to shallow water. They’re gonna get themselves stranded. We have to shut the sonar off. Sir!” “No way! Who is this? You’re asking me to shut down the testing of a cutting edge weapon—a weapon that could save thousands of human lives—for some overgrown fish? That is out of the question!” Captain Rogers shouted. “Sir, this is Private Daniels. I understand, sir. Can we change the frequency, or something?” Matt fumbled for a solution. “No! Get back to your post sailor—or I’ll have you suspended without pay!” Captain Rogers ordered. “Sir! Yes, sir.” Matt replied respectfully. He did not go back to his post on deck; he went to the control room. He told the sonar operator to change the direction. They pointed it towards the shore. The dolphins immediately went the opposite way—back to deeper water. They were safe—for now. Passage 2 Rescue at Sea Mayuka was tired from the mental and physical strain of keeping herself alive after the explosion. The torpedo had come out of nowhere. She was still shocked. The blast had destroyed the ship’s hull. It went down quickly. She was treading water in a deep, dark sea. Mayuka focused on positive thoughts. The coast guard will be searching for survivors. The rescuers will come at any moment. They will reach me, before the enemy does. Something bumped her leg. It was something big. Suddenly, the water was alive with movement, fins, and tails. She felt her body being pushed through the water. She screamed and kicked. She saw fins in the shape of triangles. Then she saw a pointed beak, followed by a rounded head pop above the water. It was a dolphin. It looked right at her. It was still up against her. The movement and splashing continued several yards away, where she had been only moments ago. From what she could see and hear, there were several dolphins attacking a shark. They had come to save her. They were her rescuers. They were her heroes. Mayuka had never appreciated living creatures the way she did at that moment.

Listen, my children, and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five; Hardly a man is now alive Who remembers that famous day and year. Paul said to his friend, "If the British march By land or sea from the town tonight, Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch Of the North Church tower as a signal light— ONE, if by land, and TWO, if by sea; And I on the opposite shore will be, Ready to ride and spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the country folk to be up and to arm.
