I read this disturbing story this morning and could barely keep from throwing my laptop through the wall. The facts are somewhat sketchy at the moment, but it appears that some haters set a man’s barn afire, killing seven horses and a young foal in an effort to terrorize him because he is gay.
I just don’t know what to say. I’ll get to a peaceful place about this, because I have to, but at the moment I only feel rage and despair. It’s bad enough to strike out at an individual over his/her orientation, but to do so in a manner that causes pain and suffering to innocent, intelligent animals is a crime that to me ranks right up there with murder.
I’ve got flooding issues to deal with today, which may be a blessing as it will keep me from dwelling on this too long.
