  1. Lab testing using animals is just so inhumane. There used to be some You Tube videos of beagles that had once been used as test animals. It was so sad to see. The poor dogs were afraid to come out of their travel kennels . But I have read that the dogs eventually make excellent pets. The while nationalists young man who broke free of his former beliefs was able to do so through his new friend’s kindness,. Just shows what the power of kindness can do for making friends and influencing positive change.

    • Thank you for these thoughts and insights, Yvonne. I agree completely. My husband saw some Beagles in cages when he worked at a pharmaceutical company years ago. It made him sick. There are so many effective alternatives to animal testing. Sometimes the results don’t even apply accurately to humans. Someone once said that if animals are enough like us to generalize the results, they are enough like us to be given compassion. I’m glad we are making progress and becoming kinder in these ways.

  2. That is excellent news JoAnna.. I have yet to watch the whole video.. But I can confirm singing is good for you.. My Hubby Sings nearly all the time.. And he is always Happy.. 🙂 ❤
