Frank and Mary,
One of my Christian friends suggested that my ongoing involvement with animal rights and rescue was not, perhaps, the best thing for me to do. He was concerned because some of the things I've seen has fired an "innate anger" and deeply wounded me.
I do realize that a person pays a heavy price when they see things like that raccoon dog being skinned alive. But, if I didn't see it, I wouldn't realize how heinous the fur trade is, and wouldn't have the motivation to fight from my anger.
Do you think God wants me to see such things? I really don't know.
