Almost ten years after starting this blog, I removed my contact page and turned off comments on old posts today. I’ll leave the site up, because a few of our informative posts still get a lot of traffic. I may pull out an old draft and post something occasionally, but there won’t be any rhyme or reason to it. Maybe in another ten years, I’ll start writing again. You never know what might happen!
Few children who harm animals grow up to be serial killers, but many do grow up to abuse their intimate partners and their children. Stopping abuse towards animals is a worthy activity in and of itself. But if we teach children early to be compassionate towards animals, we can also help to reduce domestic violence and child abuse in the human community.
