Bright Stanley is a glittery orange fish that lives at the bottom of the ocean. He is adventurous and loves to explore. Actually, exploring is “…his favorite thing in the whole, wide world.” One day Bright Stanley and his fish friends decide to venture into a cave. They were swimming happily along until they noticed huge, dark shadows on the cave walls. Their bravery quickly vanished! Bright Stanley took charge by becoming the leader, and continued the adventure into the cave. Good thing, he wasn’t a coward because a surprise awaited them.

As I was reading this story, I was wondering about what I’m projecting to the world. Am I fearful or optimistic and hopeful about what tomorrow will bring? A quote from Henry Ford comes to mind, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” What happens in our lives and how we react to them eventually defines us. Choose to maintain a positive attitude so you focus on the good things and brush off the negative.
I think a great white shark named Tito was swimming by, not looking for little fish to eat, Tito was looking for Lola a female white shark. The little bright fish had nothing to fear.
Well... I think there humans, nice frendly ones that dont want to harm little fishes but that are there only exploring the caves.
Do not fear the shadows of the minnow fish, they do no harm. Have you read about goldfish, there the king of the sea..
I think it's an octopus at the end of the cave or maybe a jellyfish!
