Jane Goodall is among a small list of my favorite people. She embodies the qualities I admire most. She understands we are all connected on this planet. Animals are connected to each other, us to them, and all of us to the earth and nature. Goodall's soulful, compassionate and intelligent work with animals over the past five decades has provided hundreds of thousands of people with a glimpse into the the nature and wonder of animals. Animals are vital to the well being of this planet and to our souls. The world needs people to shift from selfish living, away from greed and the me-me-me mentality. Open your eyes and see what really matters.
I posted this on my BLOG FOR CHANGE (under ABOLITIONIST in the first drop down box) this morning and felt it was important to reiterate. Goodall gives 4 reasons she has hope for animals and the their world: 1) The Human Brain 2) The Indomitable Human Spirit 3) The Resilience of Nature and 4)The Determination of Young People. Read more.. Her important point is that without hope, people feel helpless to make change. I think hope is vital to the art of living well.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,

What greater atrocity is there on this planet than to sell a human life and brutally force him or her into a life in the sex trade or endless labor?
And how dare we abuse, kill and traffic animals in the name of profit... in the name of anything for any reason!
