I have always found something special in the eyes of animals but up until recently, there wasn't much I did to fight against the unjust that happens to them everyday.  Care2 has given me a way to act on behalf of animals and thats what I do and care about.

"If you have men that will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who deal likewise with their fellow men"
        ~St. Francis of Assisi, Roman Catholic friar

"The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them, that is the essence of inhumanity."
       ~George Bernard Shaw

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

"He who harms animals has not understood or renounced sin.  Those whose minds are at peace and who are free from passions do not desire to live at the expense of others."
       ~Archaranga Sutra

"All animals except man know that the ultimate of life is to enjoy it."
       ~Samuel Butler

Wild Fact About Me I am naturally really rebellious at heart. Also, I was born knowing how to pick locks. No one taught me I just knew, and got into a lot of trouble for it.
My Philosophy Human life is of no more value than any other form of life on this planet. Every living thing is a teacher if we choose to learn from it and each has its place in the world.
What Gives Me Hope God has a plan for me and I have a purpose that will benefit the world.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would make more laws that protect animals and how they are treated. Also, I would take down Castro and free the Cuban people to rebuild that beautful island and make a better life for its people.
What/who changed my life and why Working for hospice changed my life because it gave me the compassion for all people, even strangers. It taught me about life and death and how special those events are. Death is a final chapter and I am proud to say I provided comfort to those in need. I have a gift with the elderly and I made a difference in hospice.
Another thing that changed my life was my addiction and the struggle and recovery from that. Facing death right in the face was scary but pulling myself back up gave me some permanent self-awareness and trust in myself.
