Disappointingly, ...

Staying 'Clean and Green'

by Robyn & Graham Storey Business, News and Society, Pets
Green pastures in New Zealand. I just saw a video on Facebook that made me totally ashamed to be a human. It was about 1080 drops in New Zealand and the horror that animals are going through as they die. It is heart breaking for the owners of animals that are loved and treasured, but it is just as cruel a death for an animal that was born wild, and does not have a person that cares. We all want to protect ...

RESPONSIBILITY; WILLINGNESS to be CAUSE in the MATTER 9 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw News and Society, Self Improvement, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
In the relatively new course run by Landmark Worldwide; the “Be Here Now seminar”, we were asked to consider that responsibility starts with a willingness to be cause in the matter.
