Save the Whales

Japan announced it will resume whale hunting this winter. Lucky for the whales, Paul Watson and his team at Sea Shepherd, are on the side of the whales..go Team Whales! Please go to Whales Revenge If you would like to sign a petition supporting Sea Shepherd. They would like to get one million signatures. Go here for more information on what you can do to help. Go here to read a great interview on Captain Paul Watson.

As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.
—Isaac Bashevis Singer, writer and Nobel laureate (1902–1991)

It ill becomes us to invoke in our daily prayers the blessings of God, the Compassionate, if we in turn will not practice elementary compassion towards our fellow creatures.
-- Mohandas Gandhi
