I'll be discussing the shelter debate, why a shelter pet isn't for everyone, and why it's not ok look down on those who choose not to get their pet from a shelter, and why you need to keep the shelter lecture to yourself.
Also, my feelings on kill vs. no-kill shelters and how they really operate.

Stray animals, desparation, rescues, raids... those are all ways in which animals end up in the shelter system. Often the county shelters are overwhelmed with the amount of animals that arrive on a daily basis.
What other options do we have? What can we do to have a different possibility? Do we have options? Can we make a difference?
We recently visited a women's shelter and the women enjoyed it. I thought the Deja Ministries with Sis. Sandy was anointed and the women of the shelter seemed to get something out of it.
However, we know there is a growing need for quality shelters and the things which are provided for the women of these shelters.
Let's Talk About It!

Eagle Feather has been a human rights advocate for over 10 years and was herself a homeless person at one point in her life.
Use this link to contact your officials http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml . Darby and Eagle Feather explain that many poor people and those with serious mental illnesses and addictions are deliberately rendered homeless in the United States of America. Sick people are deprived of psychiatric and medical health care services that would help them avoid imprisonment and harm while our communities are less safe than they could be. This is unacceptable. Voters should petition elected officials to improve treatment and subsistence opportunities. Contact Mary Neal, station director, at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or call 678.531.0262.

Elaine Blanchard is a storyteller, writer, actor and teacher. She tells stories and engages listening audiences in sharing their own stories. “Stories build bridges,” Elaine says. “When the story ends and the teller’s voice is silenced, the connection made between the listener and the story lives on.” Elaine gathers people in homeless shelters, prisons, re-entry programs, service centers for people living with HIV and AIDS, adults living with disabilities, senior centers, retreat centers, civic organizations, schools and churches. “Everyone has a story to tell. When we lift up and value every voice in our community, we increase healing and hope for everyone. By listening to the stories of our neighbors’ lives we break down stereotypes and increase mutual understanding and respect.” A registered nurse, Elaine listened for twenty-five years to the stories that patients told. A writer, Elaine’s collection of Bible stories, Help Me Remember, was published and recorded by Pilgrim Press in 2005. She has written and performed two one-woman shows, “For Goodness Sake,” a story about her experiences with racism in a southern religious home and “Skin and Bones,” a story about her struggle to live well in the body she has been given. Elaine teaches “The Art of Storytelling” at Memphis College of Art and she teaches “The Preacher as Storyteller” at Memphis Theological Seminary.

**ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE...**
JPlus (Jessie J. Andrews) taps into the heart and soul of hip-hop as a versatile MC, lyricist, and producer. His refreshingly silver-tongued creativity flows from a turbulent past, and serves as a call to change the social and economic inequity that saturates society.
A paragon of clashing brilliance with a crumbling society, “Tripolar” explores the three personas J has created to survive. ‘Jessie’ is a hopeful, intelligent young man who wants to have the same opportunity to succeed, regardless of color, creed or culture. ‘JPlus’ is entrepreneurial and confident—the “Urban King”—whose street-smarts allow him to escape the toils of the ghetto. ‘Muzzle Off’ is the third, the darkest, the most ruthless, the metabolite of societal churning: he is a hateful monster who stews in blame—blame towards a world that stole his humanity and forced a personal choice between poverty or violent crime.
But can you blame him? Growing up poor, Jessie had to visit homeless shelters, watch his mother get beat, and try to make sense of his father’s abusive tendencies and repeated incarcerations. Jessie started using music to break free, because death, both figurative and literal, was the only alternative. At the young age of 8, J began his grueling upward climb, memorizing Eminem verses and spitting rhymes with his childhood friend Sin-City.
At 26, JPlus has released seven albums, many self-produced, to include “Wasted Talent", “Force of Habit", “New Time Sake", “L.Y.R.I.C.S." just to name a few. no doubt earning himself a future honorary doctorate in English Composition. With a good set of ears, you’ll have no problem groovin’ to every track’s unique instrumentals, whether based in jazz, hardcore, R&B, or rock.
