START A PETITION

Mar 30, 2008
It's still early in my first petition (http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/tell-tnt-that-cruelty-isnt-entertainment  , if you haven't signed and are kind enough to look, please?), but I want to thank everyone who has signed.
It seems like everytime I'm sad, when I think no one really cares ...
Well, maybe someone up there kicks me in the behind and says, "Look."
Hope is still there. People do care. I'm so thrilled to be part of a community where people are willing to be kind and stand up for what they believe in.
I know my blogs have been kinda serious, so I'm going to lighten them up sometimes. I think we all need to laugh and smile, don't you?
Til then, thank you. You're helping people and giving others hope.

   Two very long months ago, my best friend died.
Bailey wasn't an 'only child'; there are two beautiful four-legged ladies in my house right now. I love them both so much.
But oh, I miss my big guy.
He was a little older when I found him (or should I say, when he found me?) . A gray beard, as they say. And there were some wonderful years - not as many as I would have hoped, or wanted, but then ... Would there ever be?
What brings this up: A dear friend of mine sent me an email today, to let me know her cat had passed on.
It's always such a sad thing.
For some reason, it brought a memory back to my mind.
I'm not sure how old I was, but I know I couldn't have been 4 yet. The family dog had just died. I remember asking, "Do animals go to heaven too?"
I was reassured that, yes, of course. What would Heaven be without them?
"That's good," I replied, "cause if they're not, I don't wanna go."
I'm all grown up now, and still feel the same way.
I know I'm not alone.
So whether you call it The Rainbow Bridge, Heaven, Paradise, what have you ... You can't convince me such true, kind friends - who bring out so much love in us; maybe often our best - aren't waiting for us.
If you've lost a furry (or feathered, or scaly) loved one, I hope you've found comfort in memories.
And in the thought of The Rainbow Bridge (etc.).

Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Petition
Location: United States

Have you heard that TNT announced they plan to air a 'reality' show that follows the circus the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus around from city to city? It's too bad they won't show the reality about the poor animals that suffer so much because of them.
Please consider signing my petition. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/tell-tnt-that-cruelty-isnt-entertainment

Thanks, and please pass the word on about TNT. The animals deserve so much better than this!
