START A PETITION

Jan 25, 2007

I signed a petiton the other day in support of giving the man who killed an Akita the maximum sentencing. It never fails, just when I think I've heard or read the most disturbing inhumane act toward an animal.....I haven't, because there's 2 or 3 more in the news.

Sometimes when I meditate at night, I cry. 

I cry because in the stilllness of meditating I feel a pain, the pain of so much evil in the world, so much suffering. I wonder if the letters I write, the petitions I sign, the information I try to spread....I wonder if that's enough. The things I do, does it matter, does it REALLY make a difference? 

I don't understand when we as a people forgot how precious life truly is, when we stopped seeing it as a gift. I believe it is through human, animal, and plant life dynamically functioning together that are able to sustain existence on this planet. It is when we forget the importance of those intricate relationships, that we need to take a step back and re-evaluate ourselves. Inhumane acts toward innocent animals clearly shows that we are loosing a part of our humanity, and that is VERY dangerous. Our humanity is the very essence of what puts the "human" in human beings. And, when we loose that, what hope do we have for the future?
