The three most powerful and inspiring words that make me wag my tail uncontrollably are: We, The People!
Now, as a patriotic rescued dog, I don’t take anything for granted but especially when it comes to inalienable rights, you know rights given to you by God and not the state, and personal freedoms. I was born to be free, right?
Seriously, it worries me to see how those rights are being incrementally taken away from my human friends. For example, did you know that Congress is holding hearings on the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA)? If this bill passes, the Internet and free speech will never be the same. Also, evidently the threat of Internet censorship is very real and thankfully many caring groups are now participating in American Censorship Day (http://americancensorship.org/) to protest this bill.
I tell you, if a dog like me, who is programmed to be vigilant with a discerning mind, can get easily distracted by watching too much trash TV, is it any wonder that the voice of many of my human friends is mute? And we all know what happens when we sleep at the wheel, right?
That’s why celebrating the Fourth of July is such a great reminder of the unique privilege and the enduring power of “We, The People” to protect the Bill of Rights and the Constitution against any tyrannical government. In doggie terms, keep your eyes on the prize (your freedoms under the Bill of Rights and the Constitution).
As a passionate dog advocate, I’m naturally constantly looking for creative ways to help my doggie friends in need whose voice can’t be heard. So, the concept of “We, The People” sparked the idea for me to create “We, The Dogs” and “Cutie’s Bill of Rights.” Imagine, now millions of man’s best friend will be able to enjoy the same inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as humans but especially the right to be free of the horrors of daily abuse, exploitation, homelessness and even death sentence. Now that’s a novel idea worth barking about, right?
You have more power than you know. So, use it or lose it!
Want to make it a super pawmazing day? Use this day as a great opportunity to unite for We, The Dogs and let freedom ring for all.
So, who needs the Constitution? Well, of-course. We, The Dogs! Now can you say give We, The Dogs a chance?
Forget fireworks to amaze you. I'm a Lion Dog and you're going to hear me ROAR..I mean ARF ….
Happy Birthday America and have a Woof-tastic Fourth of July.
