It isn't too late. We still have time to recreate and change the value system of the present. We must! Survival will depend on it. Our Earth is our original mother. She is in deep labor now. There will be a new birth soon! The old value system will suffer and die. It cannot survive as our mother earth strains under the pressure put on her. She will not let man kill her.
The First Nation's Peoples had a value system. There were only four commandments from the Great Spirits:
1.Respect Mother Earth 2.Respect the Great Spirit 3.Respect our fellow man and woman 4.Respect for individual freedom
We must all stand together as a force of love. Be united NOW. There is only one way. Communication. Knowledge. Arm yourself with truth, love and perseverence. Extend your family. Join with others in giving. We are all related. People of the earth take back your heritage. I am not speaking of skin color or religion. Our heritage is this earth... Our heritage is also extended beyond this earth into the heavens where the spirit once lived before our birth into this world. You are bound to both.
THE TEN INDIAN COMMANDMENTS!
Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with respect! Remain close to the Great Spirit Show great respect for your fellow beings Work together for the benefit of all mankind! Give assistance and kindness wherever needed Do what you know to be right Look after the well-being of mind and body Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good Be truthful and honest at all times Take full responsiblity for your actions.....

OIPAInternational Organization for Animal ProtectionINTERNATIONAL NEWS LETTER
BAN CIRCUS IN ITALYThe animals in circuses spend their lives travelling around the world which in itself causes them much stress. When they reach their temporary destination they are kept in cramped conditions and have to perform "tricks" to the public. Animals in the circus aren’t there because they want to be, and they don’t perform because they enjoy it. Animals do not naturally ride bicycles, stand on their heads, balance on balls, or jump through rings of fire. To force them to perform these confusing and physically uncomfortable tricks, trainers use whips, tight collars, muzzles, electric prods, bullhooks, and other painful tools of the trade.http://www.oipa.org/circuses/circus.htmlSTRAY ANIMALS IN GREECEA shelter for dogs at the port of Patras. It has been designed to house approximately 40 dogs. The animals live in one open space which is partially covered and a number of dog-houses are provided. Provisions for the isolation of weak or recovering animals are made. The ASCA is convinced that neutering remains the only acceptable long-term solution to the stray animal problem. All female animals given for adoption by ASCA are spayed. http://www.oipa.org/abandonment/greece.htmlSERBIAN DOGSRecently OIPA has closed the online petition directed towards the Serbian authorities, urging them to take action and put a stop to the brutal, vicious killing of street animals by government officials and ordinary citizens, and to work with the international animal welfare organizations who are adept at planning and implementing humane welfare programs.
