Human Rights Day & International Animal Rights Day

You take for granted the small things in life. In this case, having a working printer. Oh, to not have to go to a store, or library to pay $0.25$, or more a page. Forget if you make a mistake. So I'm enjoying having the option of printing in my own home. It's the small things.

Today is Human Right's Day. This years' theme is "20 Years Working for Your Rights". I'm thankful that I live in a country where I don't have to fight for my basic human rights, on a daily basis. I'm grateful that I can speak & write what is on my mind, without fear of persecution or death. I'm thankful that there are warriors who work on a daily basis to bring these right's to people around the world, every single day.

I'm not a vegetarian, nor will I lie and say that I adore every non-human creature that is in existence, but I try to have compassion. From not killing spiders or weird little bugs. Just leaving them where they are, unless that means in my bed, to helping the furry animals that I can. Purchasing animal products (to eat) from sources that treat the animals in an ethical manner. Yes, that can happen if you look hard enough. Of course most of the meat and products come from deplorable sources & circumstances, but not all of them. But that's an entire post, in itself. I do the best that I can, at this time in my life.
