Borrowing from what we posted two years ago on this same holiday – it bears repeating….

In the spirit of the late Dr. King, I say to you – I have a dream. I have a dream that light is shed on that which we do not see, and all will know the truth and the way. I have a dream that one day all pets will be in warm, loving homes; that no pet will be forced into the streets, to wander without food or shelter; that no pet will suffer at the hands of a human who so lacks respect for them, they are used, abused or neglected.
I have a dream that some day all humans will hold animals in high regard, that they will not use their superior status as an excuse to corrupt, abuse, destroy the natural resources of this great land, and that no human will approach a decision with callousness toward creature or nature.
I have a dream that every human, each and every one, will take it upon themselves to do one thing, at least one thing, toward improving the lives and welfare of their fellow earthly creatures. I dream of one world, one human race, that bestows a love and gratitude – for all that God has graced this planet with – upon their own children.
I have a dream that one day all of God’s creatures, mankind included, will live peacefully and happily together. I have a dream.
Thank you, Dr. King, for your vision, faith, wisdom.
