P.S. On 12/01/2012, my wish of a lifetime, my lifetime, is that we finally acknowledge, and put this matter to rest.
Ray, that's a beautiful poem! Thank you.
Answering for, 'the sins of the past' is a big part of life; isn't it. I, also, agree with you: We are stewards over our pets and livestock; and this stewardship makes every husbandman - in a very real spiritual sense - responsible for the ethical treatment and gentle care of all God's creatures.
'A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
