"You must be the change you wish to see in the world. " Mahatma Gandhi
What Gives Me Hope
Seeing good results of petitions; reading about real saving and caring stories on animals and people; knowing that I could help animals live better.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
to make public in newspapers, TVs etc. every event/place where animals are abused, tortured, savagely killed; I would show movies from animals in farms, at fur companies, trapped in the wild for fur, skinned alive, hunted for fun, tortured in circuses...
What/who changed my life and why
a flier on animals in meet industry; the "Well.ca" website that had filters for products not tested on animals;"The agony and ecstasy" book by Irving Stone that started me on figure drawing
"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them". Dalai Lama; "The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites, or women created for men." - Alice Walker; "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated...I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man." -Mahatma Gandhi; "I have, from an early age, renounced eating meat. The time will come when we will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of humans." - Leonardo da Vinci
