Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

I dedicate this Feel Free Friday post to Sam Simon who passed away on Sunday March 8th at the age of 59. As the co-founder of The Simpsons, Sam became rich and famous.

Towards the end of his life Sam was known among animal activists for his acts of compassion. Not only did Sam rescue hundreds of chinchillas from a fur farm (previous post @ https://emynow.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/a-compassionate-move-thank-you-sam-simon/ ) but he saved zoo and circus animals from a life of torment. He bought these captured animals and set them free to live in sanctuaries.

In his own words to the media:

“I have a desire to help animals”.

“The question of whether it makes financial sense, it’s my money and I get to do what I want with it. It’s an expensive hobby I picked up at the end of my life.”

SAM SIMON

So all I have to say is:

Sam, your time on this planet was too short.

You were rich and famous but you had a heart of gold.

 Yes, you had lots of money but you could have spent it on furs and diamonds.

Instead, your acts of generosity and compassion enriched the lives of many vulnerable beings.

You tried to reduce the suffering that humans inflict on other species.

You were a wonderful example of humanity and humour and we will miss you.

You are now free of suffering but you will never be forgotten ❤

Rest in peace.
