Ground Zero; Communist China Government

totally and extremely a dangerously incompetent and reckless regime

REALITY CHECK TIME!

This is more very bad news as we now see the scepter of the Dragon rearing its ugly head.  The modern day Gorgon is China’s Evil Communist Regime!  I wish it weren’t true but we must be candid and place blame as well as full culpability where it squarely belongs on China’s government which is corrupt and communist beyond measure, as well they deserve this placement of full responsibility more so because of their nefarious malicious manner of dealing with the Wuhan Corona Virus Pandemic from its beginning!

Now the pieces of the puzzle are coming together quickly so dramatically pointing out that the Communist Chinese Government is totally and extremely a dangerously incompetent and reckless regime or they have much darker secrets to hide regarding R&D matters in their development of weapons of mass destruction in the realm of biological warfare!  I’ve said from the onset of this whole pandemic that I saw major trouble with the response and handling by the Chinese government of this viral outbreak and how it appeared that ulterior motives and plans were afoot; and not to trust China as far as you could throw it!

I also placed a photo of a bat in my COVID-19 article because I saw the strong likelihood that this infectious disease most likely had some connection to bats as the original carriers of the virus and like Rabies the cross species transmission of the disease had begun that way; while perhaps the Chinese were working to better understand the potentialities of the illness as a possible weapon but also to get a handle on it as a new strain of virus; which was why people in China started being silenced and disappearing, once the cat got out of the bag as they say; or they lost “full control.

“Stanford Professor John P.A. Ioannidis, the co-director of the Meta-Research Innovation Center at the university, as well as a professor of medicine and population health, released an analysis on Tuesday that argued the world may be overreacting to the coronavirus pandemic.

A specialist in biomedical data science and statistics, Professor John Ioannidis argued in the report that the response to the pandemic could be a “fiasco in the making” because global governments are making huge decisions based on data that is “utterly unreliable.”

“Ioannidis claimed in the report that the United States, as well as European governments, is likely to be overreacting.”

“In the piece, published by STAT, Ioannidis argued that the virus has been labeled a “once-in-a-century pandemic” but “may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco.”

“China Is Hiding Something Big — Government Forces U.S. Journalist Out Of Country ”

By Katie Pavlich March 19, 2020

“Yesterday afternoon the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing announced journalists from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post have been expelled from the country. Journalists who remain are being told to report to the Chinese government.”

“All of these outlets were working on stories about the Wuhan coronavirus, which the government has repeatedly covered up. This censorship led to a devastating pandemic, which is wreaking havoc on the global economy as the virus continues its lethal path of destruction.”

“This expulsion of reporters, who have been publishing crucial information about the virus, proves China has more to hide.

“The disinformation campaign that they are waging is designed to shift responsibility. Now is not the time for recrimination.  Now is the time to solve this global pandemic and work to take down risks to Americans and people all across the world,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters Tuesday.”

This was an initial report about the virus when it was first acknowledged by the Chinese government.  “A new Chinese coronavirus, a cousin of the SARS virus, has infected more than 200 people since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December.  Scientist Leo Poon, who first decoded the virus, thinks it likely started in an animal and spread to humans.” https://cnn.it/2Ga2x6s

The World Health Organization has been ridiculously anemic in its efforts to get at the actual truth and more interested in gaining political capital as well as mocking President Trump with the MSM and leftist agenda all heading toward the New World Order!  We can’t rely any longer on so called authorities to be the mainstay of our factual information or aiding we citizens with “a concise factual presentation of the truth” in such matters, so, we all should be willing to keep digging for the truth, remaining vigilant in our quest to understand and act accordingly.

The purest human heart that has ever existed

While I was writing my blog as a Lent Offering today I received a notice which turned out to actually be about a very nicely written article by a fellow Christian blogger about Lent Season, which helped to inspire me to focus my writing upon this subject with fervor and try my best to explain what my personal perception about Lent is, and making such an offering to our Father in heaven during this Lent Season.

Good advice here and words of wisdom.  This got me thinking about the difficulty of separating ourselves from sin especially those sinful little pleasures we grow so accustomed to throughout the years.  Such a huge challenge at times because why?  Well the basic truth is we are fallen and not in a pure state of grace or good enough as we are to be in the presence of absolute holiness which God is and we are not.  The good news is He created us in His image having an eternal spiritual nature within us to make us heirs, to become all we can be as members of His glorious eternal kingdom in Heaven. The gap between here and there is huge and impossible a chasm to cross on our own and another huge culprit in all of this is temptation which you helped me to think about right now during Lent!  My dad would always tell me as a teen and on into my mature years, that there is too much to be had out there and it doesn’t take much to get into trouble real fast if we don’t strengthen our faith continually.  And that is where you came in with this very nice blog which speaks to the directive or marching orders put before us, these orders or the edict is simple and clear; Will You Follow Me?  Good Lord knows I want to and have tried and failed often enough like all of us do, sometimes appearing to be so messed up that if we had tails we certainly would be chasing them!  But here is the good news, God made it so simple and guaranteed that we can be where He is in splendor and peace forever, if we as my mom always said, just keep trying our best because Jesus took all sin away and tossed it into hell where it belongs and He knows if we have sincerely tried our best or not.  The purest human heart that has ever existed, completely perfect and without any sin is pleading to us to follow and does all the pleading of each of our cases before our heavenly Father to forgive us for our transgressions or lack.  See that is the amazing thing God does through Jesus Christ He is searching out every heart to know it perfectly as to whether that heart belongs to Him or is running a scam or charade playing both ends against the middle, like having the best of both worlds if you will, to party it up for the short term appeasement this world can offer which the evil one uses continually against those of us who figure as far as heaven goes I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it, because Jesus is so loving and will cut me enough slack to get through the gate.  Many of the politicians we actually witness these days are a prime example of this folly and deception they play with grabbing all they can now while they cause nothing but ruin and misery around them.  It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Matthew 19:23 Any self-serving or becoming puffed up with one’s own interests and worldly power or pleasures is guilty of this transgression from God and will never reach His kingdom following that path to perdition and eternal damnation.  The polar opposite of this is what Jesus himself stated to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke 9:23)

I refer now to a faithful servant of Jesus who dedicated his life to serving God’s will on earth, Rev. Billy Graham.

Billy Graham post.jpg

“What did Jesus mean when He said we have to carry a cross? I’ve heard people talk about a problem they have and say it’s a cross they have to bear, but is this what Jesus meant?”

A:

“No, this isn’t what He meant—although it’s not necessarily wrong to refer to some problem we are having as a “cross” we must bear. In Jesus’ day, a cross was a symbol of suffering, and we all have trials and afflictions that may be very hard for us to bear—even with God’s help.

But Jesus meant something far deeper than this when He told His disciples to carry their cross.  He said to them, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke 9:23).  In Jesus’ day, a cross wasn’t just a symbol of pain and suffering; it was mainly a symbol of death.  What Jesus was telling them is that they needed to put to death their own plans and desires, and then turn their lives over to Him and do His will every day.

You see, Jesus doesn’t simply call us to believe that He existed, or even to believe that He can save us.  He calls on us to commit our whole lives to Him—to trust Him alone for our salvation, and then to follow Him as His disciples. He said, “Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:27).

Is Christ the master of your life?  Have you put to death your own plans and committed yourself to His will for your life?  Don’t be satisfied with anything less, for there is no greater joy in life than following Christ every day”.  billygraham.org

Reading Rev. Graham’s words to others who desire to know and serve Christ reminded me of something my grandfather would say many years ago when I was a boy, “don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today!”  Which leads my thoughts back to what I believe this other blogger elicited in my thoughts about lent;  And that reminds me of what you’re saying here, how Lent Season should be looked upon; how we are not to waste this golden opportunity to get into alignment with the Lord!

“Go in through the narrow gate, because the gate to hell is wide and the road that leads to it is easy, and there are many who travel it.” Matthew 7:13

So yes it is a difficult road we travel but we can make it much more difficult than it need be and indeed impossible to overcome or we can make it a journey of “Fulfillment and Victory” over all that is against us, yes even death itself; to become champions at being His “humble servants” though Jesus Christ for God who is in heaven, our Father Who is waiting to embrace us in our everlasting New Life when we join Him there.

Jesus is still here leading us to the Father by His Holy Spirit, to our New and Everlasting Life if we will just follow Him our Good Shepherd. 

God Bless You and Keep You.

Post Script continuation Part II

I needed to share here a potion of what I had to say to another fellow Christian blogger yesterday while having a conversation about a dog I rescued and this too also serves as evidence demonstrating how, Jesus is the Master Potter and He will shape our lives to suit what purpose our Father sees as best for each one of us as long as we turn our lives over to Jesus and are truly letting Him lead us by our right hand.

Thank you so much for having the interest in Penny and sending out all of the good thoughts you do!  Yes, she was a very confused panic stricken animal when I came along, that was about to have her life taken away by a too busy not always caring world, but God gave her a chance by allowing me and Penny to act as a message of “Salvation and Hope” when God brought us together, so in time that example would be observed or even duplicated through the hearts and minds of others that hear about her story!  God gave me a chance to serve as an instrument to that end appreciating life and every little blessing even more this example of Penny, because having her as a friend has actually changed me for the better too!  God’s power and infinite love is at work all around us and that is where our attention should be focused as much as we possibly can.

I do believe that we children of God are much like Penny in that when she had no direction or hope, feeling that way because of her confused and lost emotional state when I found her, through what I know was “God’s deliverance and Divine Intervention.”  To move from despair to hope and onto salvation!  This is an example of God’s daily handiwork in our lives to shape each of us to bring about His Great Plan which is unfolding every second, He does actually have; “the whole wide world in his hands!”

The other thing that immediately captured my attention in your comment was when you mentioned Brother Lawrence and his writing who I actually never heard of and this was very intriguing to me, so I actually got to thinking about him a bit looking him up here online as I was telling you about the seagull I rescued, and now I want to read about his beautiful, as I see it methodology of communing with God continually from a very basic simple focus and complete openness with due diligence, being able to know His presence first hand and in the way that God allows one to manifest a very close relationship with Him, in what I would call a state of attuned connection with the Holy Spirit moment to moment, sort of being on the same frequency, by being free and trusting through genuine belief that He will talk to you if you are willing to let yourself go and allow Him to lead, trusting Him by faith alone.  You and I do this because now I know we were meant to converse, and little special dots are being connected as we just do like this, whereby you told me about this fascinating Monk Lawrence that I’m so inspired to read about now, and will get this book of his,  “The Practice of the Presence of God.”

Brother Lawrence web size.jpg

“The Practice of the Presence of God is a book of collected teachings of Brother Lawrence (born Nicholas Herman), a 17th-century Carmelite friar, compiled by Father Joseph de Beaufort.  The compilation includes letters, as well as records of his conversations kept by Brother Lawrence’s interlocutors.  The basic theme of the book is the development of an awareness of the presence of God.”   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Practice_of_the_Presence_of_God

“Brother Lawrence retreated to a place in his heart where the love of God made every detail of his life of surpassing value.  ‘I (Brother Lawrence) began to live as if there were no one save God and me in the world.’  Together, God and Brother Lawrence cooked meals, ran errands, scrubbed pots, and endured the scorn of the world.

So, as always God is in control and we are continually being guided and molded to suit His purposes for each of us and if we pay attention and are willing to let Him lead the way it will become all the more apparent as we move forward. spirituallyhungry.com/christian-challenge/

How to talk to God web.jpg

“I regard myself as the most wretched of all men, stinking and covered with sores, and as one who has committed all sorts of crimes against his King.  Overcome by remorse, I confess all my wickedness to Him, ask His pardon and abandon myself entirely to Him to do with as He will.  But this King, filled with goodness and mercy, far from chastising me, lovingly embraces me, makes me eat at His table, serves me with His own hands, gives me the keys of His treasures and treats me as His favorite.  He talks with me and is delighted with me in a thousand and one ways; He forgives me and relieves me of my principle bad habits without talking about them; I beg Him to make me according to His heart and always the more weak and despicable I see myself to be, the more beloved I am of God.”
Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God

“That all things are possible to him who believes, that they are less difficult to him who hopes, they are more easy to him who loves, and still more easy to him who perseveres in the practice of these three virtues.”
Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God
“We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.”

Just today I had spoken with a sister about some events in the news and my “Lent Offering” blog which she said inspired her not only because of how it was written but that as usual I had prayed to Jesus to help me with the body of the article, from my most genuine thoughts, feelings, and desire with my heart through Him, to know what words to say and even the right photos to add which seem to come along easily.  Then today an email notice had arrived at the same time my sister and I had talked, which was about one of the very topics we had been discussing since my writing the “Lent Offering” article and how this article that addressed the unfairness of President Trump’s impeachment had definite tie-in to what we discussed; but most remarkable was the fact that the photo I felt directed to add to my blog when I wrote it was of Rev. Billy Graham taken many years ago in the early days of his evangelizing which now along with the photo that accompanied the article I received about President Trump connected profoundly in my way of seeing these two photos and men; especially in spirit and intent of both men being called to a higher purpose in order to serve God for their fellow man!  I see dots being connected all of the time lately as God sees best, in order to reach and help each of us to see Him and the truth he is revealing over time about our personal journeys in serving Him; our unique part that each of us has in His plan, day by day and bit by bit or as I say “dot by dot!”  I’m adding the photo for your discernment and I appreciate how we are so richly blessed to be able to share this way in fellowship for Him, especially when we consider how often times we actually make it through the gauntlet of life here on earth each and every day!  3/2/2020

Mission Accomplished

dreaming about talking to some lady and having feelings in the dream of something being imperative

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED-Another Turtle Doesn’t Bite the Dust

I awoke very early this morning and found a message about my recent Blog post “Do You Think This Is A Joy Ride?”  This message struck me as being simple, pure and genuine in that its author recognized the deeply convicted spiritual nature of my message and intent.  So I decided not to go back to bed and write a response; even though it was only 2:30 AM, and I certainly needed to so I could get some urgently needed sleep, as I had been sleep deprived the last couple of days.  No, instead I stayed up and opened up, which I tend not to do especially online, about very deeply held personal challenges or struggles!  I was as a child a fairly open and very friendly lad, what one of my uncles whose name is Gus, referred to me as, “a happy go lucky kid!”  And I stayed that way true to my nature into adulthood, until more recent years when I was challenged by the cruel and ugly side of the world and some people that love being nefarious or even wicked, whether out of bitterness, worldly conformity, selfishness, jealousy, pure hatred of those they can’t understand, agendas or even at times pure evil; I became a target of such.  Maybe because as some would say I stood out in the crowd or was too loud and vocal about things I shouldn’t be, but as I saw it, if it involves me and the things that matter, damn straight I’m going to voice my opinion or stand up for my rights!

So, after writing a lengthy reply comment, I was too awake to just jump back into bed and instead talked to my dog that by now had shown interest in my own activity and problem which she now had too, of not being able to sleep like we should be.  But, after a little play, talking and hugging I thought it was about time to try hitting the hay again, so off to bed.  I went out like a light and started dreaming about talking to some lady and having feelings in the dream of something being imperative and I could see how I was motivated to get moving and do something; even though I didn’t know what!  I awoke again after sleeping barely an hour more and noticed how it wasn’t looking bright around the shaded window like it typically does at this time of morning; being just past sunrise.  I thought how if I would be taking my dog Penny for her walk we were going to have to do it very early before the sun is much up over the horizon, as it was supposed to be a hot day and major thunder storms are expected later today as I write this.  At that point I was so tired I thought maybe we can be lazy on Saturday and sleep in for a few hours!  And that way I could get much more rest and not feel so beat up, and that later maybe the clouds would be thick enough that the sun won’t be so intense, making for a somewhat comfortable walk for Penny. That’s because she is getting up in years and I don’t want to stress her in the high about 90 degree temperature with the humidity at saturation levels making it more like South East Asia around here.

But, then that imperative feeling came back which was definitely compelling me to jump up now and take the walk early as we had done for previous mornings.  So the mission began; which I had no idea was in play other than that imperative feeling of “get going,” and we were now off and out the door heading down the road we usually take that leads down along the water’s edge of a cove nearby my home, when that’s the path we decide to follow out of the several we use to keep things interesting.  As we walked along we seemed to be more interested in taking a more direct least encumbered path to a destination we usually end up at one way or the other and then sit for a spell, watching the ducks, geese and occasionally the swans that are just out in the cove just off and very near the shores edge.  Our walk became more brisk as I had noticed the sun and it’s full effect was starting to break through the heavy cloud and fog canopy overhead and the humidity was making me feel wringing wet, so I could only imagine how Penny would feel by the time we were on our way back home, especially if the clouds cleared completely!  So even though I had let her off the leash for a stretch which usually causes her to walk just ahead of me like the leader of the pack, she was now falling behind a bit and so I clipped the leash back onto her harness so I could keep us moving briskly in order to make our trip to the water sooner rather than later, in order to sit and rest then hurry back to the AC and some ice water!  Suddenly as we were in the general vicinity of where we will turn down another road to walk straight to the cove, as we were approaching this long dirt driveway that runs off into some nearby woods Penny stalled and got agitated about something, it seemed she was looking in the wooded area and stopped dead in her tracks and wouldn’t move even though I tried to get her going.  This was something she hadn’t done before especially in that particular location, so I eased up and tried to let her investigate a bit to see if she could show me what was going on that attracted her attention so much.  Nothing, I couldn’t see anything in the woods, which I figured had to be what was diverting her, maybe some animal sitting still or just behind some trees, but I’ll never know it seems because then she suddenly started heading in the usual direction we needed to go.  But then, we hardly walked another hundred feet and came to a short paved driveway where a woman was just walking around the back of her car and trying to get a closer look at something very small lumbering or trudging along going under the car.  Then I could see what it was, a baby snapping turtle, which it turns out that if I had come along a half a moment sooner or later; I would not have seen this little turtle today!  This immediately brought back my memory of how I once rescued one the same size in the capital city near a highway construction site by a nearby river.  Back then I was driving a cement mixer to pour new concrete mix for a bridge column and had just after the pour noticed something moving in the dust of the all dirt access road leading into the site.  I pulled over to the side and put on the air brakes and jumped down to investigate more closely, and that was the first time I rescued a baby snapping turtle, which I placed into my shirt pocket until I got back to the company property and parked the truck.

That turned out to be a long ordeal for both me and the baby snapping turtle that never would have made it in the location where I found it aimlessly wandering to its death.  It was late fall and I brought that turtle to a lake a few towns over a couple of days later and placed it near the edge of the water expecting it to scurry in like a bolt of lightning but to my surprise it didn’t move at all and then turned back toward me.  Then I thought, what is up with you little guy all these Lilly pads and a huge lake with all sorts of interesting wild coastline with plants to nibble on and with winter coming a nice muddy bottom for you to bury yourself and hibernate through the winter and you want nothing to do with it?  I could have left you where I found you I thought and you would be a goner already; so now what?  OK, I thought, I guess I found you and now it’s my responsibility to do right by you; so you want to winter in with a human being and take the easy route or path for some reason, maybe you even realize instinctively that some big mouth bass will swallow you whole here!  Lucky you I thought, how you had me out of all the guys that work around that site to notice you in time and put you in my pocket; all those other guys some I know and many I don’t I’m sure they either wouldn’t have noticed or if they did the last thing they would have done is put you in their shirt pocket, but more likely you would have been mashed under 40 tons of rubber and metal.

So, that turtle got back home with me to spend the entire winter with in a nice fish aquarium that I converted into a terrarium or turtle like habitat, months later in early spring after he had grown into a nice size juvenile yearling reptilian creature, I drove to a major state preserve to the site of an old ancient battle ground by much swampy land for his release!  I have to admit I did get a bit attached to this bugger that winter and I had many a talk with him or her, never tried to find out which, but now the moment of truth was arriving as I had to first park my Jeep on a fire access road and hike in a couple of miles to where I decided he would spend his life far away from that capital city and all the man-made world with all of its machinery and foreboding activity.  Yes, after all of our time together I wasn’t about to throw caution to the wind and say see ya later alligator, well OK, Turtle, and dump him at the most convenient place for me, NO NO, it had to be the most special place I could imagine were this special turtle would live a life of Greatness with other turtles hopefully, in a very primitive and wild area far removed from people, even me, although I had parting words for him about that point.  When I got to the water’s edge of the swamp and like that time many months prior placed him on the shore, but just before I did I said, OK this is your new beginning and I hope and pray you will love it here living a very long life that turtles like you usually do!  And then,  I went on to say that one day in the future I will remember you and take a hike back to this very spot and look for you to say hello again, but until then just remember our time together at my home and know that I love you and want you to be happy!  Then, this time as I did place him there by the edge of the water he without any hesitation darted with speed I never had seen this turtle display, right into the water with a plop and there he went straight down about four feet to the muddy bottom and got right to burying himself to hide from the prying eyes of the world.  Never knew turtles could be that shy, or maybe I had talked too much all those months and this turtle wanted out big time, it figured, wow crazy people!  I said again goodbye, and left that place, and haven’t been back since.  That turtle in his shell in that moment of truth got me thinking how I was really kind of shy behind my thick head and big mouth too!

Now all these years later, here I am with one of his kind again, which is sitting in the same tank terrarium that I’ve kept tucked away in my home; while I now think over how I will handle this rescued turtle.  They live many decades and that first one may now be in its prime or beginning to get old and might want some company!  Another, “Mission Accomplished!”

“A God Sent Ray of Hope and Light on Thanksgiving for a Dog and a Man”

I rescued my dog from being put down at a shelter when I came along by God Sent about a dozen hours before it was scheduled and a couple of days before Thanksgiving!  If I hadn’t been working near the shelter and heard howls that reminded me of the wolf howl or “Call of the Wild” which I used to do with mush team dogs I had rescued years prior; like Jack London’s great story which I’ve always loved, I would not have been curious before the shelter closed that afternoon to go look and found out in fact that two Champion blood line Siberian Huskies had gotten out of a house in an affluent town next door and where there at the shelter only a few hours because their owners were frantically looking for them which was the call out for my current dog to give her attention to me in order for me to be aware she was in dire need!  I got there and knew the director from years prior when she was a dog officer for the town and I said; that dog what are you doing with her, no name on her cage?  And she said the Police Department decided she has to be destroyed!  I said “NO WAY,” only because this lady knew how determined and sure I can be she went out on a limb for me as she later told me and did what is unheard of there and called the Chief after hours and then others in the loop to save her; and the next morning I was waiting before the place opened in the parking lot!  I gave the lady Anne time to get things going and not even public visiting hours yet at that point, then I went in to ask about Penny which was the name they gave her months before and she said, ” Larry don’t say anything and go see your dog!”  Makes me cry remembering how I felt that day, just as Anne said that I started crying!  I love this dog so much I would take a bullet for her or do anything to protect her!  It’s been figured she is a dog with Jackal in her, being Basenji and Ridge Back!  She was very hard to control or get to be calm and nice in the house for the first few years’ lots of work and mopping up after her, very destructive and defiant almost, tearing down mini blinds to see who was outside nearby, wanting so much attention and freedom to do as she pleases!  I let her sleep on my bed every night now!  She loves me so much and same back to her!  Also turned out that the Police Department had given her a shot and allowed her to be adopted after some months of working with her in the shelter environment but she was brought back immediately by the family as completely unruly, the final nail in her coffin, that is until I came along in the nick of time!  Thanks be to God!

Hope I made you feel something nice inside telling you all this!

Standing Boldly in the Darkest Hours

The Animal Rights Advocate Pledge.

Fellow Advocate if you can lead the way we can follow or when you need me or some other advocate to take the lead and advance the cause by all means don’t hesitate to say so, I’m more than willing and able to face any adversary for what is RIGHT and JUST!  To me my life means nothing if in the darkest hours I fail to stand boldly before our true enemies in this world, and there are many!  Prayer and fellowship with one another are always needed and beneficial but BRAVERY and VALOR are harder to come by in most circumstances these days, because too many would rather pass the “buck” or leave the “dirty work” for someone else to do!  I don’t have that problem because nobody owns me and I’m not beholding to any power on earth, political or otherwise and I’m always willing to go down with the ship if need be!  Justice must be served in this world because we know that evil has gotten too many to cooperate already, and that will not do, it must be stopped dead in its tracks and obliterated if necessary; because it intends on infecting the entire human race with its end being destruction!

“WE SAVE THE ANIMALS WE SAVE OURSELVES!”

We fail them; our lives are worth dust in the wind.

All of this I say because of “NDUME” the gorilla, in his honor!

Memories and BUCK!

Another pure thought that came to my heart and soul due to this Pet JOE passing in a violent attack like this was something so classic and brazen in my heart forever!  I always loved Jack London and especially his great classic “Call of the Wild!”  From when I was a boy I would romanticize the whole Northwest Territory and Alaska of days gone by; but the thing that got to me like really deep in my soul was the dogs, and all of them but especially the key dog in that classic tale which makes me cry now thinking about his brave loving heart! Buck – A powerful dog, half St. Bernard and half sheepdog!  Good God what a beautiful sentient animal being I would love to die if I must in that remote place isolated and pure from all of humanity and chaos with a team of dogs mushing through the snow and with a lead or key dog like Buck!  I would want to just keep on going like that for countless years feeling the awe and magnificence of life, as you would in that backdrop of pure reality and being in touch with the soul of Nature and all those Sentient Beings in Unison with your own Spirit!  God, I can feel it now sitting here!
