One Woman’s Amazing Work Every Thanksgiving
Every Thanksgiving season I brace myself for the inevitable pangs of sorrow I feel for the turkeys who are destined for the holiday table.
The mass slaughter in the name of tradition and thankfulness seems so odd to me, a strange way to celebrate an otherwise really beautiful holiday (the usual embarrassment of family, including the probable antics of a drunk relative notwithstanding). 😀
Then I’m reminded of a small dent in the senseless killing of these birds–a rescue of such tenderness and love that the videos every year bring tears to my eyes.
Karen Dawn is my hero (and most importantly, a heroine to a few lucky turkeys each year), and I hope to grow more and more into the kind of loving and gentle spirit this wonderful person clearly embodies.
See for yourself. 🙂
