Dogs and democracy

Dear Editor:As an employee of a local animal shelter, I am proud to live in a community that not only supports democracy but also takes it one step further and institutes change. Taking the lead and speaking out in such a small valley can be difficult, if not condemned all together.I thank the compassionate people who wrote in to the local papers, speaking for the dogs at Krabloonik. Living in a time of fear and war, it’s easy to lose sight that peace will only come through a positive shift in global consciousness. Death is a necessary part of life and so is teaching respect and responsibility. If we do not start at the bottom respecting life that cannot possibly compete with our dominance, we will lose everything we love about this world and valley. Small steps such as adoption and humane euthanasia lead our global community slowly towards a safer future.Thanks again to the people strong enough to speak out. Evolve, and keep rocking the boat towards a higher standard of compassion.Cholla EatonCarbondale
