Reflections On A Sunny September Day

Finding My Way Back To Light

Reflections On A Sunny September Day – I have come to realize that humanity is broken in most of the important places. When I first got involved in animal issues twelve years ago and stared to learn about the scale of cruelty and abuse in every aspect of animal life – both wild and domestic, and the callous abuse of our planet – I was woefully ill-prepared to deal with the emotional trauma and the scope of cruelty and ignorance I was seeing. To say I was naive is an understatement. I had been totally blinded like all good consumers in our world of commercial consumption, longing for what we don’t have, crowd following, and dissatisfaction.

A Re-Cap Of Year 5

Happy Fifth Birthday ABH – My animal awareness blog – A Beating Heart is five years old today. I launched it on February 14, 2013 – a nod to the day of hearts and love and in recognition of the often forgotten fact that every sentient being has “A Beating Heart”.

Make 2018 The Year That You Decide To Become A Better Person

Because – you can change with every decision you make. The animal advocacy movement is growing exponentially. Social mores and norms are shifting as more people globally are choosing to be vegan, vegetarian or deciding to eat less meat. Fur is slowly becoming unacceptable. Hunting is seen as the barbaric and cowardly sport that it is and more countries are starting to ban the importation of trophies, ivory, rhino horn, shark fins and illegally obtained animal products. Blood sports are seen as the savage events that they are and those involved are being called out of for their participation in this heinous animal cruelty. Rodeos and circuses are on notice. Dog fighting and puppy mills are in the news. Factory farming is being exposed as a revolting, greedy and cruel enterprise.
