Since being widowed I have dedicated my life to helping innocent and defenceless animals and children. I will do what it takes to STOP this barbaric cruelty towards those not able to defend themselves - especially animals. My dogs are my children, and I love them as such. My children are grown up, and support me in my efforts to eradicate cruelty (and those perpetrating it) against animals. Unless you have loved an animal, your soul has never been touched. I consider myself intelligent and knowledgeable, and dont suffer fools gladly. Prior to being widowed my husband and I were VERY active in all forms of animal welfare - volunteering, donating, rescueing, and being wherever we were needed, but since his death I have become a virtual recluse - relying only on my "virtual friends" on my computer, my adult children with their partners, and my "children" animals as companions.
Nothing wild - pretty predictable and yes, very premeditated where it comes to exacting justice on behalf of animals.
All it takes is one good man to shut-up and condone the atrocities being committed - he will poison the barrel as others will follow suit.
What Gives Me Hope
At this stage of my life? Nothing really gives me hope, it all seems to be going putrid around me and in the world in general. The only light at the end of the tunnel is all of those who are prepared to take a stand with me to make a difference and to voice their abhorrence of all the cruelty being perpetrated around us - and those who are prepared to physically get involved in eradicating it!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
I would limit human births drastically - it is, after all, humans who are causing the pain on this planet. I would also close down all Puppy Mills and institute sterilization programs the world over, and prohibit the indiscrimate anihilation of all animals - big or small. To close down research labs and the gassing shelters of America - as well as the dog farms in China where they are bred for live skinning and eating!
What/who changed my life and why
My husband - now deceased - who helped me find the abundance of love in myself after I thought it had all left me. He taught me patience, perseverance and how to love totally and laugh. My children - life's lessons can be hard, but they have influenced me and my way of thinking eternally. My animals - who have only shown me unconditional love, and expected nothing in return - unfortunately I smother them with all I have - I adore them.
