Be Brave, Just Say Something

Sometimes all it takes to make someone’s life better is for you to say something. So just do it. So what if someone yells at you or won’t do what you are suggesting. You don’t know until you try it.

In this instance I am talking about a dog but it could be any animal or human. Speak up and take a chance on making someone’s life better.

For instance “I noticed when I come over to play with your dog she never has any water”.
We are talking about a period of at least ten hours. The dog has water now. Yahoo!

That’s all it took. Of course I did have to broach it nicely. Yes kind of difficult for me to do. Be brave, just do it.

How many children, animals or elderly people can you help by speaking up? Encourage others to do so. If you see a dog who doesn’t have what it needs then ask if you can help in any way. Can you walk it, play with it, provide much-needed water or food? Maybe the owners are in over their head. It’s not the dogs fault. By helping the neighbors you are helping the dog.

Do you notice a neighborhood child at the bus stop without a coat? Or good shoes? Buy whatever and give it to them through the school. Add in a little extra, like fun pencils, paper or whatever you think their age would enjoy.

Does an elderly neighbor need their leaves raked, snow shoveled? Firewood? Oil? Sneak and pay their gas bill or drop off a big bag of groceries for them!

Keep your eyes and ears open there are always people or animals who need help. Sometimes the need may be so large that you must have help, so be it. Sometimes it’s the smallest thing that will make someones life so much better. Whatever it is just do it!!!!!

What a wonderful world this could be if more people would speak up. Far too many people hide and cower away. Don’t mind your own business and you could make a life better or even save one. Don’t leave it for someone else to do, YOU DO IT! Be brave.

Do Something Wonderful!

Go buy loads of ice cream and chocolate syrup and take it to your local orphange. Just think how happy you will make a lot of kids. Just imagine the smiles and the joy you give to them. Sometimes in the really bad times it’s the little things that we all take for granted that means so much to someone else. Go ahead spread some joy today.

Mother Theresa A Jerk? Maybe

Many, many years ago I read three books about Mother Teresa. The first two were exactly what you thought they would be. They painted a picture of a wonderful, saintly woman who did so much for the sick and poor.

The third book however brought up a lot of questions and pointed towards a woman not quite as nice as everyone would like to believe. In Mother Teresa: Beyond The Image by Anne Sebba I distinctly remember a part where someone overheard her crossly snatch away a literal crumb of bread that a person was hiding. She scolded them for hiding food and if they didn’t believe God was going to take care of them. We are talking about a sick and dying person who was malnourished and used to being hungry. I don’t see Mother Teresa’s actions with that person as being very Godly or kind and loving. That book really opened my eyes and I have thought differently about her ever since. It seems she wanted the fame although not the money and did not care that much about people. It was also as if she were gathering up points with God for doing good works which the Bible clearly states can not be done. Jesus and Jesus alone paid for our salvation by his blood.

So I challenge you, read the book for yourself and see what you think. Anytime you read about someone you need to get more than one perspective. We all know that the media monster hypes what they want us to see and that is not always the truth.

Joaquin Phoenix is an Animal Hero!

Three cheers for Joaquin Phoenix!  An actor using his skills and fame for good. Now that is an acting job that deserves a Oscar. He depicts the last minutes of a dying fish. If you have severe asthma then you can relate. I have had a near death experience from an attack so I know exactly how the fish feels. It is horrible and very painful. So when I see fishermen hold up a fish bragging about it and you can see it’s gills heaving in and out desperately grasping for air I know what that feels like. I too grieve for the fish. Not to mention there is a huge metal hook stuck through its mouth. Can you not imagine the pain for yourself? Can you really not imagine it? If not then watch this ad that Joaquin made for PETA. I personally don’t feel it’s anywhere near a strong enough depiction. Yet they were told it’s too political and controversial by ABC. Yet it’s ok for Hardee’s fast food to show an almost naked woman eating a burger as if she is having sex with it on the beach. What a load of bull. The media is the new mafia. The mafia of mind control.

Just A Dog?

I’m sick of hearing people say, it’s just a dog, as if it’s a souless, heartless block of wood that is of no use. This dog is a hero as they all have the potential to be. Treat dogs with the love and respect they deserve.
