THE SWAN'S SONG
PEACE and TRANQUILITY INTERRUPTED

As I sit on a lovely spring day
By a lake near the Point Pleasant Bay
I think of the swan that was brutally killed
And I wonder what I can say.

As the birds sing above, and the ducks splash around
To think that some person recently came,
Shattering their peace and causing such pain,
Beheading a swan here, how could they sink to such shame?

We must teach our children to love and respect,
To treat all God's creatures with the care they expect
To enjoy watching nature, to take pictures and such
Not to shatter their world, are we asking too much?

All living things are put here by God,
Not to use or abuse or to kill
The swan that was killed in a horrible way
Screamed out for our help -- now he's still.

In Sorrow,
(-But with hope for a brighter tomorrow),

Mayor Anne DuHaime
Bloomingdale, N.J.
Spring 1995

Written shortly after this evil act was committed.

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
