This is Diamond's mom writing in the diary today. I did not share this poem with my family, I felt it was to saddening for them. I found the poem in Queen Gracie's diary. She is a paw pal of Diamond's. The poem takes you through every emotion I could think of, but yet so horribly true it has to be passed around. It left me heartbroken, to think about the helpless lives who aren't saved at shelters across the country. The reason they wound up there in the first place.
We must demand that our shelters be no kill. We must stand up for the abused animals. We must demand stiffer laws for abusers. We must educate people about the spay and neutering programs. We must stand up for the defenceless animals our world. We must stand up!
To think of all the animals on the earth that are killed for big business and small business everyday. What is going to be the next animal to become extinct. Will it be a certain kind of whale, tiger or elephant. Could you imagine generations growing up looking at these animals at museums like we look at dinosaur bones. We must support our wildlife groups. We must.
We owe it to the animals, all of them, tame..wild..little..large..flesh eaters or herbivores and all animals in between.
My final feelings on the poem, is that it has inspired me. And that it will send you down the same road of emotions that I felt. That's why it should be on billboards across the nation. Thank you, Queen Grace.
Thanks for caring!
Also, thought I'd share that we know everyone who wants to help may not be able to foster or volunteer at the kennels or events, there are many other ways. One of the easiest is igive.com. If you haven't heard of this it's a site where at you register, pick a charity and then whenever you shop online through the site, they automatically donate money to that charity. The site has almost 1,000 qualifying stores. I'm a shopping fiend and every store that I frequent is listed. You don't even need to know the exact name of your charity. Go to the site and choose your state and cause-"animals." This will bring up a list of non-profit rescues in your area. Choose one and you're off. Doesn't get much easier then that! :)
