  • Welcome – Bobby Mann
  • Mary's Motivation – Friday’s call (9/24/21) was a deep discussion on violence and terrorism that animal welfare people face. We heard personal stories from people who were willing to share with us their terrifying experiences.  A lady from Philadelphia spoke of the constant barrage of body shaming she got as a result of the work she’s been doing – she’s a social worker. In spite of this, she hasn’t given up hope. Bottom line is we have to be kind. We have to meet all of the negative opposition to what we do with love and compassion. “Whenever I’m pointing a finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at me.”We need to do better.  We need to provide that self-care with people we don’t even know.  Match the calamity with loving, compassionate words and behavior - it starts with each of us.
