I recently discovered the brilliant work of artist Jeff Hong, whose series “Disney Unhappily Ever After” depicts the harsh circumstances our favorite Disney characters would likely encounter if faced with reality. This piece, “101 Euthanizations”, reminds us that SO many dogs brought into the world with good intentions end up dying behind shelters walls.

The harsh words we type don’t disappear into the atmosphere. They’re read, they’re remembered, they’re screencapped, they’re used against people, they damage future careers, and most importantly, they damage others- often more than we know. Disagreeing with someone shouldn’t make you want to humiliate them or destroy their spirit. Don’t let keyboards and computer screens make you forget your values or your compassion. Be kind.

Thanks to the ancient Greeks for this fabulous piece of language. I’m trying my best to embody it with The Tree Kisser! Do we have a similar word in English? We need one.

It’s funny how many people aggressively try to find inconsistencies or flaws among animal activists, in an attempt (I presume) to discredit their whole philosophy. i.e.: “Oh you’re vegan? What about the poor ants you crush when walking down the street? You know the rubber tires on your car probably contain cow parts.” Do these same people look at volunteers treating Ebola-stricken African children and condemn them for wearing cotton t-shirts that were likely made in sweatshops?

We can only do the best we can do. As we learn more and have better options, we can make better choices. Let’s focus on that, shall we?

What the actual fuck, National Institute of Health. It’s time to stop spending taxpayer money on torturous, archaic “experiments”.

Can we please put to rest the “but humans have always _____” argument? I can’t understand how tradition or habit justifies anything we do, especially when that thing requires cruelty or exploitation. We’ve all studied history…we know how many horrific, silly, dangerous, unsanitary, immoral, etc. things our species has taken part in over the years. Isn’t the point of progress, research, and education to find a better way? To make our generation’s chapter in future history books less embarrassing than those that came before?

If you’ve known me for a while, you know all about the heroic Katie Meyler, founder of More Than Me, an organization providing education and resources to young girls in the slums of Liberia. Katie is currently in West Point, documenting the devastating effects of the Ebola virus and volunteering to help victims & the community. She’s not allowed to physically touch anyone, but that doesn’t stop her from spreading smiles :). Her unwavering bravery is a constant inspiration to me.

PLEASE check out (and share!) her stories & images at http://instagram.com/katiemeyler, and if you’re inspired to help combat this horrific virus, consider donating to Doctors Without Borders.
