“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Thank you, Judie Mancuso, for your love and commitment to the animals which have no voice. By your actions, you have saved the lives of so many unfortunate and helpless creatures.
In a better world, creatures would not be captured nor bred to be slaughtered and eaten; it would not be considered “fashionable” to wear the scales and hides of helpless wild creatures, kept in captivity for their lifetimes. An animal is not a “thing.”
May Gandhi be wrong. May we never be judged by the way our animals are treated.
And thank you, Judie Mancuso, for helping us make moral progress, little by little, as long as it takes.
