HUNGER STRIKE FOR A CAUSE?
There are a thousand causes that one could take on and protest... Gosh, you see hundreds of requests weekly on your Facebook feed - "Repost this within 30 seconds if you want to save (insert cause here) from the (insert destructive thing for emphasis here)." "Most of my Friends won't take the time to repost this, will you be the one to repost and help us end (insert bad thing here).
Apparently a cat...
There is something to be said in giving yourself to a cause, a charity and/or being part of an organization/political movement.... Dedicated, community oriented, committed (and not in the crazy/loony kind of way) and noble. Giving back or working for change is good for the soul...
One day, my Diva said, "NO! I will not eat food laced with the tiniest amount of medicine. I will not be tricked by your attempts to hide it in delicious treats. And, when you stop giving it to me, yet use the same food bags that could have trace amounts of said medicine, I will continue my hunger strike until you do the right thing. Clean out my bucket with hot water and bleach, throw away all food bags that "may" have come in contact with said medicine and return with new food laced with tasty treats... Bow once in my general direction as you deliver new food... then I will eat again."
There are few things that reveal Sugar's 3/4th thoroughbred heritage... the love of a good gallop, the ease in which she gets and stays fit and maybe her recovery rate... I can add this as another... the love of a good Hunger Strike.
So, tonight on FB, I will repost something so that thousands of (insert being here) will be saved by the 7% willing to repost on behalf of eliminating (insert devastating condition/abuse here)... I do so in order to honor Sugar's 8 day Hunger Strike... and make it count!
