I am constantly told that …


I can’t change the world.  And you know, I can’t.

I absolutely can’t.  I can’t make people more compassionate.  I can’t stop people thinking that people who have their benefits taken away from them, deserve it.  I can’t stop people laughing about bacon when all I can see is the pig who lived and died in a terrible way, just so they could eat something “nice”.  And joke about it afterwards.  In the same way I can’t stop people joking about people who “live on benefits”.

I can’t make people see the link – that the same people who are taking away animals’ rights to life are the same people who are taking away people’s rights to life … that when someone devalues animals, they are likely to devalue people too.

However, I CAN change the world for that one person, that one animal.  And I am damned if I am going to stop.  Not now.  Not ever.

About titflasher

Writer, blogger, animal activist, people activist, dream-catcher maker, mommy to 9 cats and a roving band of foxes ... Blog name comes from my father's suggestion for the title of my autobiography ... after my mother's and my awful habit of flashing whenever the security police took our photo in the dark old days of apartheid South Africa. I love nature, including creepy crawlies and people, find life fascinating and frustrating and have two terrible weaknesses - nictotine and animals in distress ... can't abide the latter situation and can't give up the former. I'm Pagan but not anti-Christian, funny but quite serious, light-hearted but can be annoying. I am warm-hearted until someone p*sses on me too much, then I get soggy and even. Feel free to link me but all the words on these pages is copyrighted, so copy it and take the credit and I will find you and slap you upside the head, hard. The blog is probably best read via category as there is loads on here already, and I just got started :-)
