Travelling with deliberate purpose

Just a p.s here..I had to delete the video, it wasn't working, but it was from the American Humane Society. Hard to watch, but crucial...too bad it didn't come out.

It hurts me so much to think that we, as people can murder and torture animals, and because they have fur or feathers or gills or shells or scales it's not seen as torture or murder. It's never seen as the brutal crime that it is.

So, I've been vacillating on big life decisions. I know I need to do something that helps animals lives, and not just my own. I know that animals are the lungs, heart, soul, spirit, and breath of this earth. Like trees and mountains they ground and centre us; they comfort and love us, and in return, we abandon them, and do such mind-numbingly sick things to all the gentle beings of this earth.


  1. I think the same thing! What makes me really mad is when I see animals that have been hit and run over and they are still on the street the next day. If those were Human bodies, there is no way we would allow that to happen, but because they are animals we think it is ok to just drive by and not do anything.

  2. yes, geez I know so well. I remember one summer I saw in about one or 2 days maybe 3 dead raccoons on the road, 2 dead squirrels and a cat, on my street!! I called animal control to tell them where I had seen each animal and to come get them. They told me point blank that none of these dead bodies constituted emergencies, so therefore they were in no way priorities. It's fucked up.
