|I have always had a thing for Noah's Ark.|
|Maybe if all animals were tougher...this|
one has had enough and isn't going
to take it anymore! This isn't your
farm-raised chick, this is wild chicken!
I bring this topic up, not only because these stories are effecting me and I wish the laws would change to protect animals better, but because I watched a movie that really moved me (in a positive way). "Temple Grandin" is a movie about one of the most amazing people I have ever heard of. Born with autism, Temple Grandin found a passion for animal welfare and eventually had a huge impact on the way cattle is farmed. She had a passion for cows and truly wanted to make their lives better. She made a difference. I highly recommend this movie if you haven't seen it yet. It is out on DVD and it made me cry tears of joy in the end. Plus, the underlying message is finding passion and success while overcoming extreme diversity (a true Hollywood story).
|Plan for movie night this weekend and pick this one up!|
Such an amazing movie about an amazing person.
I promise to act when I see an animal mistreated (even if the SPCA starts getting irritated by my calls). I promise to speak up if I witness animal cruelty in public and not turn away. I promise to help an animal in need (whether it is an injured cat by the side of the road or a stray dog) and I hope that you can do the same too. If only to speak up for those injured, lost, abused, neglected, and scared animals who can't do it for themselves. All you have to do is say "no" to animal neglect and cruelty and let others know it is not okay.
Thanks to the SPCA for all that they do. I realize some people may think they cause more harm at times, but at least they are there removing those animals, fortunate enough to be saved, from the houses of those who should never be able to take care of any living thing again.
I promise more happy thoughts tomorrow!
