A PLEA TO HUMANITY

However much our species evolves via science and technology, many, many years will pass before the human race evolves into a compassionate and gentle order.

Driven by arrogance, greed, narcissism, jealousy, religious fanaticism, hate and a lack of compassion, spiritual confidence and God, many humans continue to plague the peace and dignity of the voiceless. 

The sight of animals suffering and dying at the hands of man and the consequence of man’s quest for superiority and expansion in this world and beyond, impact animal activists in a way that is indescribable and incomprehensible to most others.  It is the responsibility of those of us who are in synch with their misery to posture as beacons of light in their darkness. We must track and police the human evolutionary journey to decency. 

Barely a whisper of the past is the memory of thousands of abandoned and abused animals who shed their blood and died as a result of the August Athens Olympic housecleaning task force. Chilling reality struck a hard blow to the Greek nation as media networks around the world broadcast in Technicolor and surround sound, the raging fires that consumed Greece this August.  Is it ironic that flames engulfed Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games? Who and what will catalyze a world wide protest to those promoting the quest for the Olympic “gold”, and self aggrandizement in China; the “sleeping dragon”?  We are all too familiar with the “cultural” eating habits of some Chinese and their recent bloodthirsty protocol for dealing with the threat of rabies. 
 
I for one, disregard the “customs and culture” theory as an excuse for spiritual ignorance and worse, indifference.

There are two forces in this particulat universe that regulate the life force; that of good and that of evil.  Everything that happens to our society and in our world is mediated by one or the other. Let us all join forces to rehabilitate the actions and reputation of “man” and craft a message to the world that animal abuse, neglect and exploitation is not acceptable.  This does not take a complex evolution of moral thought. This is a process to keep humanity from nose diving into oblivion. ~


“If you are a truly compassionate advocate for animal rights; please stop waving your country’s flag and singing your national anthem.  Animals do not understand geography, nor do they suffer within defined borders.  They suffer everywhere.
