I try to update this blog at least twice a day with stories and pictures I find around the Internet. I always try to post some “cute” things along with the grisly truth, because those I am trying to reach about the plight of animals around the world, won’t visit if its all blood and sad stories. In other words, they won’t visit if there is too much truth.
There are those faithful visitors I see everyday like Colleen, Susan, Renard, Buddy, and Nancy, and so, so many others. Close to 250 per day. But there are many who visit that I never learn their names. They prefer to visit, read, and hopefully learn or strengthen their resolve to help the defenseless and voiceless we share this planet with.
So I am always a little shocked when someone, like Summer at Summer4Soul.org visits, is touched and leaves behind a very kind though, and gives a very meaningful award. Not, by any means, that any of the others this site has received are any less special. They all mean so much, as do those who give them. This one just hit me especially close because I believe so much in what Summer says and does.
There are way, way too many sick f***s in this world for my liking. What a horrible waste of a life. And for what? Pleasure? Seriously? WTF?
