A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Today’s Thoughts – 24 July 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

A former FBI agent and author, Robert K. Ressler coined the term “serial killer.” This is what he said about the violent offenders that he profiled: "These are the kids who never learned it's wrong to poke out a puppy's eyes."

“Show me the enforced laws of a state for the prevention of cruelty to animals and I in turn will give you a correct estimate of the refinement, enlightenment, integrity and equity of that commonwealth's people.” – L.T.Danshiell, Animal Rights Advocate

“The man who kills the animals today is the man who kills the people who get in his way tomorrow.” – Dr. Dian Fossey (January 16, 1932 – December 26, 1985) was an American zoologist who observed eight gorilla groups in the mountain forests of Rwanda. She was murdered by animal killers.
