Today is Martin Luther King Day.
He was a great man. A humanitarian, a civil rights activist, and an inspiring leader with integrity and honor.
He is my hero.
He inspires me.
He risked everything for an important cause he believed in.
He believed in right over wrong. Good over bad.
Thank you Dr King for making this world a better place.
I want to share some of his quotes that I’ve used for our cause to end declawing.
The time is always right to do what is right. MLK
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. MLK
Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. MLK
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. MLK
Never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. MLK
Light can drive out darkness. Let’s keep shining light, educating, and spreading awareness and someday declawing will be in the history books as a very dark chapter in the veterinary profession in North America. Sixty five years of this terrible injustice executed on cats is long enough.
Those of you who are part of the solution to help end declawing are the noble ones who are on the right side of cat history.
Sadly, we will always remember the silence of our friends who looked the other way in the times we needed them the most and who could have saved so much pain and suffering in cats.
At the end of your lives, whether it is 9 or 1, you will feel great fulfillment in your soul and warmth in your heart for helping to end a horrifically cruel injustice done to kitties. As MLK once said, Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
The positive change that you helped to create will live on forever and ever. You will leave a part of you in this world, for doing the right thing and making a positive difference.
I also have a dream that someday all my fellow kitties will be safe from having their toes and claws cruelly and inhumanely amputated in the hands of “doctors” who took a vow to help and heal animals and who know better.
Thank you Dr King.
Thank you to all of you.
