Paul Mccartney has inspired me to help save the world, when his first Peta poster made me realize that the greatest thing an entertainer can do is stand up to injustice. Robert Kennedy once said;
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
Living by these words.My sister and I are vegetarians going on 37 years, and we are also an animal activist duet from Massachusetts.
Pauls courage to help save the world, inspired us to want to make Animal rights be what the world is singing about.
Besides our work providing musical therapy for the elderly, disabled and in firmed, we are crusaders for justice which includes going Vegan, recycling and raising money for animal welfare, through selling our art work and writing songs about the environment, love, life and human and animal rights issues.
Below is a song I wrote about saving the planet, while my mother, (who was blind) was receiving a dialysis treatment for kidney failure, when I would sit with her during her treatments, she often would ask me to get her a treat at the orchid bakery, which was a farm down the road from the dialysis center where she was being treated. While my mother napped, I took many a walk to this bakery,( which was set back in a very wooded area apart from many industrial dwellings.) At the time I wrote this song, I remember crying, as I walked by the trees, no matter where I looked, litter was abound and the sights and sounds of mankind filled the woods, pond, streets and the air.
