The Sand Dollar
Splash!! Of course it’s me being picked up by every human and throwing me as far away out as possible. It gets me very angry and annoyed because the humans don’t treat me with enough respect as some other organisms living here.

Is it because we aren’t fast enough or have to the agility to escape predators? We are the same as almost every other organisms living today with systems, certain body parts, we eat food for nutrition, etc. Is everything about us not good enough for anyone? What is not to like about us? It hard to believe humans just treat us like a piece of trash and not giving anything they touch or study any respect of who they are. Are all humans like that?
When they pick us out of the water, they never knew that we could have...
