Such a beautiful and important answer. I have never considered this specific example, but I too feel a gut churning fury when the weak – animals, the elderly, children, those with special needs– suffer abuse at the hands of those who feel they are superior. Bravo to Harper Faulkner for putting this into words.

It’s a tough question to answer. For me, the answer changes depending on the day!
Nothing wrong with that! We get inspiration from many many sources. This was just so nicely said and so meaningful to me that I had to share…
Bigger question for me, “Why I Don’t?” Work excluded of course!
Well, I could provide you a whole series called, Why I Procrastinate. Just haven’t gotten around to it yet! 🙂
