The Rock-itt : January 2012
The more time I spent with Edgar and the other rescued farmed animals, the more I became convinced that it was totally unfair the way we treated animals based upon the shape they came in, our use of them and our familiarity we had with them. Animals are indeed amongst the most vulnerable and voiceless in our society and choosing kindness at every opportunity is the greatest legacy we can leave. My aim is never to tell people what to do, or not do, but rather encourage them to think and align their ethics and their actions. Edgar's Mission became much more than a home for one lucky pig. Today Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary is home to over 250 rescued farm ed animals but it is much more than that for it gives voice to millions of other not so lucky farmed animals. It has become a mission of kindness, a mission that says all animals need and deserve our compassion and kindness and it has become a beacon of hope that we can heal our relationship with the animal kingdom, for their sake and ours. Edgar sadly passed away last year, but his mission of kindness continues in words and deeds and if he were alive today I am sure he would want amongst belly rubs and muesli bars, everybody to think about this very important question. "If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn't we?"
