*swipe* I took my little one out for the #EmptytheTanks2017 protest this past weekend. He was shy most of the time but towards the end he started coming around and asking me questions...why the dolphins were kept in a pool when the ocean is their home...why all of us were holding signs....why people think they can have dolphins/whales when they have family in the ocean...all questions we should be honest about as mentors. *
Often we fabricate stories to make others more comfortable...while behind the stories, there is suffering. I want him to know that every choice we make has a connection whether it be good or bad. To add kindness to all things we do in life...that the world would be just fine without us humans. So, while we are living amongst other beings, we need to have respect for all of them...not some of them. We will make mistakes but learning from them will make us more educated in the future.
Please teach our children that it's ok to be kind and compassionate to all beings, not just some of them...that is OUR first mistakes with what WE believe is valuable to OURSELVES. Speciesism. We will always be Crazy and Weird...it's the coolest way to be♡
I was thankful to meet @camillethecompassionator @brother_ricardo @mojavedolphins for the @compassionworks and @emptythetanksworldwide event. Don't buy a ticket to these shit shows. There's nothing captivating about captivity...ever. You are paying for their misery. But, there was a time where I was unaware, nows the time to educate yourself♡ #bethechangeyouwishtosee *

Discovered this horrific auction site www.showsci.org/auctions
Bids for hunting elephants, leopards, lions, bear and wolves, among many other animals. The amount of money being bid to travel halfway across the world to kill an animal could be used for conservation, the environment, combat homelessness, mental illness, domestic abuse, clean water and vaccinations for third world countries, the list goes on. Where are the priorities that someone would get more enjoyment spending seventy thousand dollars for a dead bear than helping living, breathing animals and people?
