Imagine if some omnipotent malevolent force decided that your and your child's corpses were really tasty.

They think, they feel, they love...and they die because by the billions because they can be murdered for pleasure without consequences.

And all the while I am being carried across the sky

Entry

"We enter parliament in order to supply ourselves, in the arsenal of democracy, with its own weapons.

As the wolf bursts into the flock, so we come."

Sweetie





Date: Jul 16, 2008
Subject: I'm in Tears, & pleading for help from Fellow Rescuers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK, so today I went against my logical thinking side, a rescue agreement not to take more than we can afford, & advice from a now very angry mother.

I'm involved with a newly formed rescue, Project Paws, Inc. We are newly started, and are still working on our 501 C3. It's pending. We basically formed because recently animal control for this county was stopped & strays have no place to go. They will now be hit by cars, shot & poisoned.

We have done 3 fundraisers in the 3 months we have been formed, and have saved over 35 animals so far. We are Extremely full... all 7 of our foster homes, and just don't have enough money in our bank account to take any more.

So... we got a call from this old lady, who was crying & pleading for our help. A stray dog had been in the neighborhood for the past 3 weeks... all the neighbors were throwing sticks & rocks at it...trying to make it go away, even going as far as shooting at it...hoping to get rid of it. The dog kept coming to her house & she kept chasing it away.

On Sunday, the dog collapsed & fell down her steps. The dog was too malnourished, skinny, weak & dehydrated to go on any longer. so she fed it a meal finally. Her husband told her if it wasn't gone by tonight...he was shooting it in the head.

So today, the Treasurer of Project Paws & I went & got the dog. If anything...to have her humanely euthanized.

This is what we found: an extremely skinny, sad looking dog, with the sweetest personality & a strong will to live. Right now she is sleeping on my bed. I bathed her, she was covered in blood from fleas, and very matted. You can't tell in the picture...but I can feel EVERY bone in her body. Her skull is even sunk in! She has little to NO muscle mass, and has hair loss from no nutrition.

This is where I need help! Project Paws has no money in our accounts. We have medical bills that have to be paid from other rescue dog & cats. I want to prove to my mom, and help give Project Paws a little inspiration in this dark time. I need to some how, get donations to have her spayed, Heartworm tested, dewormed, and get her shots.

The total price is about $120 dollars. Is there any way, we could spread the word & have everyone just donate $5 to help toward her medical costs.

I named her Sweetie! That's all she is! She is about 5 yrs old & has nearly been starved to death & shot in the head. She needs help & Project Paws is in terrible need of funding to help her.

We are working on setting up a Paypal account...but donations can also be mailed to:

Clutter

"Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as well as work. A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. No more busy work. No more hiding from success. Leave time, leave space, to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!"

Deja Vu

"These are the times that try men's souls.
The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will,
in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country;
but he that stands it now,
deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us,
that the harder the conflict,
the more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly.
Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods;
and it would be strange indeed,
if so celestial an article as Freedom
should not be highly rated."

-- Thomas Paine(1737-1809)
