The Will to Change

Photo by Scott Flaherty

I cried when I read this. Thank you, thank you Stephen Capra for saying everything that needed to be said. You gave my soul a lift, you lifted us all up, we who have been fighting in the trenches for so long, only to be drowned out by the compromisers. Thanking you for speaking truth to power. Now lets keep moving forward and follow your blueprint!

Always for the wolves,

Exposing the Big Game

Stephen Capra

It’s ironic in so many ways; we live in a time where the earth as we know it is literally crying out in pain. The pain which comes from a human race at war with nature, a place that once was such a part of people’s lives is now something that stands in the way of profits, lifestyles beyond measure, and helps to define a world lacking in love and in need of therapy. For nature is perhaps our best reflection of love on earth.

  4. Every word, thought, statement, etc is true. From the first word to the last. I read Stephen Capra’s factual statement…and I am sending it on to all the government officials I can think of, all the websites I know, and all of my friends and having them forward it on and telling them to send it to their friends. Keep the train moving…in the right direction!

  6. It appears to be true that public outrage CAN affect some govt actions:
    The WA pack slated for execution is under moratorium of human attack until tomorrow.
    Washington has a rather significant contingent of humans opposed to wolf killing.
    It has the usual ranchers in and east of the Cascades, though.

    When WA DFW determines what to do about the remaining members of the pack that took several sheep, the public may not be heard. (the “owner” has moved his sheep from the pack’s area. There are more sociopolitical machinations going on)

    To Anne, above: The movement to allow wolves their birthright (as I put it) will likely have to show “governors” of all types that it is of most economic value to leave unroaded land and wolves free. This will be difficult in Euroamerica, with its ethic of profit from every possible source.

    Fernanda:
    Truth and life have also a power, a joy so deep that it includes weeping. How men treat others will always pain the heart more greatly than death itself. A wolf taught me: somehow, looking into the eyes of beloved is the only warmth, the only home we ever need. I will not betray this wolf, nor any other.
    Verdade e vida também tem um poder, uma alegria tão profunda que inclui choro . Como os homens tratam os outros sempre dor o coração mais fortemente do que a própria morte.
    Um lobo me ensinou: de alguma forma, olhando nos olhos do amado é o único calor , o único lar que alguma vez precisar . Eu não vou trair esta lobo, nem qualquer outro
