Speak Up

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute”

I know I mostly focus on animal rights and animal welfare on here and my twitter feed.  Animals have always been my passion and I will continue to work hard to ensure we have a future where no animal is tortured, exploited, or killed.  But this passion I have for these creatures who cannot speak for themselves also extends to repressed groups of people as well.  Children, women, religious and racial “minorities”…  honestly, I will fight for any group of living beings that are not properly respected or represented.  So sometimes I will post information and opinions on non-animal related issues since I strongly believe we are all one species:  humans and we all share one home:  earth.  I will be doing two blog posts this week – one about the Texas abortion bill and the other about the Martin case.  One issue obviously affects me much more directly as I am a woman in Texas, but both are upsetting to me and truly show how far we still have to go as a people, as a nation, and as a species.
