Providing a bridge from despair to hope
I shall be a believer
of all that is good in man and of all that is deserving in animals. I
shall plead for their lives, campaign for their safety and uphold their
right to a natural death. I shall seek out the injured and the maimed,
the unloved, and the abandoned and tend to them in their last days. I
shall not forget their place in the hierarchy of life, nor that we walk
in each others paths. I shall bear witness to the wonder they bring into
our lives and to the beauty they bestow upon our souls.
I shall renew their spirits when they are waning, bind their wounds when they bleed, cradle them when they whimper, and comfort them when they mourn. I shall be near them in their hour of greatest need- a companion and friend when the time has come. I shall watch over them and console them and ask that the angels gather them in their arms. From the creatures of the earth, I shall learn the fruits of compassion and undying love. In their company I shall indeed be blessed.
