I've actually been a member of Care2 for many years. However, I didn't completed a profile. Even though I have signed various petitions sent me by Care2 over the years and have earned many "butterfly credits", they now have me as just having joined in "2012". Anyway, when I finally decided to update my profile, I had forgotten all the login information I listed when I first joined. So I had to RE-join. Therefore, I suppose I would describe myself as someone who occasionally displays a "selective" memory (laughing at myself as I write this). Other than that minor fact, I am just an average native-born American who loves, trusts and worships a Living God! I also have respect for all living creatures, big and/or small! ALL were created by God to reside on this planet and I truly believe we all need to learn how to "get along" with our own species (human) and have respect as well for all OTHER species (animal kingdom)!!
...to respect the rights and opinions of all and to treat everyone as equally as they will permit!
What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
IF I had any political authority, I would strive to institute more strict abuse for every living being, be they animal or human! I would also see to it that severe penalties were given to ANYONE found guilty of abuse...ie...animal, child, spousal or elder specically! Also on my animal abuse agenda would be the ENDING of BSL in EVERY state, the BANNING of ALL gas chambers and the ENDING of "KILL" shelters!
What/who changed my life and why
The "person" who totally changed my life is God Himself! He has made such a difference in my life, it would take quite a while to list all that He has done for me. Suffice it to say, I've seen many miracles, even personal ones, since I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior. I cannot now comprehend anyone thinking there is no God. I KNOW there is and He has changed my life for the better, even though I also know that Christians have been and always will be persecuted to some degree. I also know that the evil one (aka the devil) will always try to dissuade our faith and trust in God!! Personally, I look forward to Jesus' Second Coming and spending Eternity with my Redeemer!
