One must take special care of all of nature's creatures! I love turtles too.

Nice to know there are people out there who care for turtles! This should be made into a poster and distributed.

Love your letter ~~ Turtles are amazing! We had a pet turtle named "Myrtle" when we were kids .. I'll never forget the day we 'lost' it under a console radio. We did find her unscathed.

Oh, Miss Mouse, what a lovely haiku to the turtles. And I couldn't help noticing "don't be shellfish" in your labels list. Made me smile.

A love letter to turtles...be it one on four legs or humans who move slower, but have the will to persevere. Love it!

Awesome "letter". Beautiful tribute. Just because their shell makes them strong/stronger, doesn't mean we should kick 'em around. :)
