It is everyone's responsibility to make a difference.
Everyone is born with their compassion switch in the "ON" position.
As we begin to experience life, most of us learn quickly that it hurts to open up.
It hurts to feel.
Consequently, many turn their compassion switch to the "OFF" position. It is less painful to "not" feel. It is less painful to simply look the other way.
It seems that our society is becoming less and less compassionate.
S.P.A. believes that we, as rescuers, are much like Johnny Appleseed, carrying a satchel on our backs filled with tiny seeds of compassion.
It takes trees many years to grow, but eventually, they produce fruit and more seeds germinate and soon one tree begets two trees begets eight trees...
A single tree can create a forest... in time.
This is a very important time, right now. We all must plant as many seeds of compassion as possible.
It may take awhile, but each seed that is planted throughout the course of each day, will eventually mature and touch hundreds, if not thousands of living beings, in ways we can only begin to imagine.
