A terrible pipeline explosion tore through Nanjing, China, killing 13 people and injuring 300. News like that has become so commonplace that it’s almost hard to connect and understand the reality for those in that region. The news rarely, if ever, covers the suffering of non-humans.
This monkey saved the puppy from the explosion.
If anyone asks me why I work as a voice for other species instead of just working to help humans, and claims that other species are somehow less worthy than we humans, I want to show them this picture. Most humans would save themselves and get the heck out of there....
These are our forgotten relatives. These caring, feeling, thinking beings whom many of us still think are "things". They want nothing more than their own lives....They want freedom and family and friends and comfort. Just like us.
I have not been able to blog lately because I have been crazy busy with conferences and speaking and leading workshops. In between those, I have not had internet access.
Thanks for waiting patiently for my return.
