SeaWorld Orlando reopens show with orcas

Employees wept and audience members grew silent Saturday at SeaWorld as the theme park's popular killer whale show resumed with a photo montage memorial for a trainer who was killed by one of the orcas in front of horrified spectators three days ago.

This is a VERY classy move on the part of sea world to have the tribute.

Very well done.

I fully agree with Crazy Horse...very touching.

I am surprised though, that there would even the slightest difference of music or "pre-show" in front of the Orcas...since it was emotional for hte trainers. Perhaps it should have ran after the performance...just in case.

I went ahead and made the pilgrimage to see the show on Saturday morning on my way into work.. it was a really touching experience in the cold rain... one additional item to note was there was a very high security presence in the stadium.. I suppose in case any protesters decided to bring it to the show, there was no need.
