“The purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better.”
Robert F Kennedy

It can so often seem that the world is a very uncaring place and cruelty, abuse and exploitation of both human and non human animals is rife. It is as though we are drowning in cruelty and suffering. Yet in the midst of all the awfulness, all the exploitation, all the misery, greed and suffering there are positive things happening.

There are people who care deeply about the other beings with whom we share this world, there are people who care about each other. And there are also animals who care for one another. Amongst the onslaught of negativity there are positive things in this world which we should celebrate and focus our attention upon.

This section will focus on positive events, on the people and organisations who dedicate their time and their resources to care for some of the abused and abandoned animals that would otherwise be left to suffer the misery, pain and death often inflicted upon them by uncaring humans.  I will also write about individuals and organisations who care for the millions of abused human beings in this world of overwhelming suffering, most of which is brought about by those who lack conscience, who put self-interest and profit over every being that exists and the very earth itself.

With the emphasis on unbalanced and often biased negative aspects of the news the world can seem like a bleak place with little of any good taking place. While there is much evil in the world perpetrated towards both human and non human animals there is also much good.

So many people in their everyday lives contribute to a better world not necessarily in momentous actions but in little ways often not noticed or deliberately ignored – frankly I consider there is a deliberate emphasis on negativity.

In short I hope to include a selection of positive items from around the internet or elsewhere.
