bad mood at saints

Carol  ·  Jul. 18, 2008

i am sad tonight...too many times animals become the victims of our need. we use them to get what we want from them and never admit that we do. we use them for paycheques, for places to live, we use them to bully others around, we use them to make ourselves look good, we use them to feed our self importance. we use them so we can feel all soft inside and so we are never alone. we use them to impress or protect or to make money or we use them as a call to arms...but we use them and use them and use them again, over and over and over...we use them to entertain our children, we use them to entertain ourselves..i am so freaking tired of these animals getting the shitty short end of the stick and everyone pretending it isn't true.
go ahead and use them, use them all that you want but freaking well pay them for the use that you get and pay them really thru the nose and til it hurts you as much as it hurts them, then maybe you can enjoy what you took.

i am in an unhappy mood....too many things are bothering me tonight and there is no where to hide....god sometimes i wish i was blind.



Carol, I'm sorry your heart is hurting tonight. When bad things (horrible things) happen to good, loyal, loving animals, it is hard to put one foot in front of the other and just keep going.
But you will, because you're you, and the pain of doing nothing is worse than the pain of doing something. Far too often you are handed somebody else's victim of mistakes/neglect/abuse. If they couldn't come to S.A.I.N.T.S., if you couldn't handle the sadness and anger, it would be the end for so many lovely and deserving animals.

Please try yo take care of yourself tonight. Watch a movie surrounded by you crippled crew. A crew that adores you.
