…Hundreds of South African lions are being slaughtered to make bogus sex potions for men.
But we can stop this cruel trade by hitting the government where it hurts ~ the tourism industry.
A global ban on tiger bone sales has traders hunting a new prize ~ the majestic lions. Lions are farmed under appalling conditions in South Africa for “canned hunting“, where rich tourists pay thousands to shoot them through fences.
Now experts say lion bones from these killing farms are being exported to phony ‘medicine’ makers in Asia for record profits. Trade is exploding and experts fear that as prices rise, even wild lions~ with only 20,000 left in Africa ~ will come under poaching attack.
WE MUST DO OUR PART TO END THIS SENSELESS SLAUGHTER OF THE MAJESTIC AFRICAN LION
~ PLEASE SIGN THE AVAAZ PETITION ~

THE ROAD TO HAPPINESS – BEAUTIFUL AND INSPIRING MOVIE
A quote from the book, “The Road to Happiness”, by Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher: “I believe that happiness is an attitude of gratitude; and I commit to giving thanks.”
“Happiness depends on ourselves.” More than anybody else, Aristotle enshrines happiness as a central purpose of human life and a goal in itself. As a result he devotes more space to the topic of happiness than any thinker prior to the modern era.
“Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.” ~ Thoreau
“Being happy doesn’t always mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” ~ Unknown
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.” ~
Mahatma Gandhi (1869 – 1948), Indian leader and politician
“The summit of happiness is reached when a person is ready to be what he is.” ~ Desiderius Erasmus (1466 – 1536), Dutch humanist
“Happiness depends on yourselves.” ~
Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC), Greek philosopher
