I tend to annoy some people with my passion for wanting to help & make a difference for the voiceless. But hey, if you don't rock the boat the ride will be so very dull. 

Gandhi said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

Co-worker A just told us about a neighbor from her childhood who got angry with a cat and smashed it's face into a heated stove burner.
I said, I wonder what she would do to a child when [s]he pissed her off.
Co-worker B said that the two have nothing to do with each other.
I said, If someone is going to react violently in anger towards one defenseless being chances are really good that they will react violently in anger towards another defenseless being.
With attitude Co-worker B replied, absolutely not.
I gotta totally disagree with Co-worker B.

"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages." - Thomas Edison, American Inventor and Scientist

"Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man."
- Arthur Schopenhauer, German Philosopher

"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love." - Pythagoras, Pre-Socratic Greek Philosopher

"To inflict cruelties on defenceless creatures, or condone such acts, is to abuse one of the cardinal tenets of a civilised society - reverence for life." - Dr. Jon Evans, England

"If a man aspires toward a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals." - Count Leo Tolstoy, Russian Novelist and Philosopher

What/who changed my life and why Well, first & foremost my relationship w/ Jesus Christ but also, Bringing my first kitty home made me relaize that animals are breathing - living beings. Then it dawned on me that all animals are beings that should be allowed to live out their lives w/o fear of being slaughtered for humans & their selfish desires.
