There's nothing kind in a holiday ham... Nothing happy about a holiday turkey... Nothing sweet in a treat - Made of suffering and death.
But everything is right about a silent night... If we would just EVOLVE!
"Prayer for Animals"
Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering;
for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated;
for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars;
for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals,
and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
- Albert Schweitzer
Happy Celebrations to those who share the gift of kindness! <3
