Why the world suffers

My encounter in the last two days made me think of this quote by Napoleon Bonaparte: The world suffers because of the silence of good people.

There are animal lovers in my neighbourhood who agree with what I do. There are neighbours who think the complainant was being very unreasonable, and yet, nobody chose to speak up or to lend me some support.

The silence of good people: Of not wanting to get involved. Of letting your friend battle it out on her own.

So much for the concept of “tribe”, which is supposed to be what all humans need – friends who are there for you when you need support.

In speaking up for animals, that is what we have to be prepared for – it might be a lonely battle.

Do not give up. Fighting for the animals is worth it.

You all are worth it, Creamy, Misty and Gerald.
