Happy Fourth Birthday ABH
A Re-Cap Of Year 4
Happy Fourth Birthday ABH – My animal awareness blog – A Beating Heart is four 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”. Never question that: We love – They love. We feel – They feel. We grieve – They grieve. We play – They play. We cry – They Cry and We suffer – They suffer!
Humanity has no singular claim to an emotional, spiritual and physical existence.
The Lions – once again, brilliant wildlife photographer, Fred von Winckelmann has generously allowed me to share his stunning photographs. The sole purpose of this post is to highlight the beauty of the African lions, and to acknowledge their fragile tenure in the world. Estimates vary, but there may be as few as twenty to thirty thousand lions remaining in the wild. We, global citizens, must do everything we can to ensure that they continue to thrive on the vast, open lands where their ancestors left footprints in the sand. We owe them nothing less that our ceaseless efforts to protect them.
Thank you, Fred.Read More»
Rest Well Now Tilikum
And still they die. Victims of human ignorance, ugliness, lies and arrogance.
Rest Well Now Tilikum. They die because humans do not stand up together to demand that laws be changed – that our planet be respected and that all animals be granted the freedom they deserve. Qumquat – Limba – Marius – Tembe – Satao – Joy – Watoto – Arturo – Ronnie – Cecil and countless more. All at the hands of human kind. Murdered, captured, enslaved, exploited, poached, used and abused. They die because humans lack a moral compass. They die because we are a tragic, lost species.Read More»
‘Tis The Season
‘Tis The Season again and with it the hustle and bustle of all things Christmas and Holiday. I am a lucky woman. My life is blessed by abundance. If yours is too, spend some time sending loving energy out to our beautiful tired planet and those less fortunate, of whom there are many. Every small gesture matters more than we can ever know.Read More»
Shame On Humanity
The Ugly Evil Of Humans
Shame On Humanity – The exposure of this appalling cruelty should be a wake up call for every human being. I personally do not care what you believe in – who you pray to – or what your calling is in life. The fact that we humans – who believe in our superiority and claim to be civilized – allow this to happen to living, feeling creatures is beyond belief.Read More»
My Path To Animal Activism
Was Blind – But Now I See
My Path To Animal Activism – I became consciously aware of the extent of global animal cruelty and serious environmental issues in 2006. In the intervening years what I have learned has changed me and altered the path of my life. I am a different woman today because I listened to the calling of my heart.Read More»
The Small Things
It Is So Easy To Be Kind
The Small Things – The three water stations I created in my garden this past July took me half an hour to set up. They required a twice daily top up of fresh, cold water. Birds love to splash in the summer when it’s really hot. They get right down in the water, and fan their wings like crazy, sending water droplets flying in all directions. The birds, bees, wasps, and dragonflies found the water immediately. The stations were always busy. It made me think of how difficult it is, for birds and small animals in a city, to find water when it’s a blistering, hot day.Read More»
