The world is a dangerous place to live,
not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
— Albert Einstein
Whether or not we disagree on the issue of gun control legislation, I believe we can all agree that the violence perpetrated by people with guns is abhorant. Each day in America alone. an average of 85 people die from gun violence and another 191 are critically injured.
We cats, and the people who love us, are going to do something about it.
Week 7 of Purrs 4 Peace is directed to ending gun violence.
- Week seven’s appointed time is Sunday, July 26, 2009.
- Participants should purr for three minutes commencing at 12:00 noon EDT (U.S.) which is 5:00 p.m. (17:00 hrs.) BST in the U.K.
- The cat’s human staff should assist their cats with the project by stroking and nuzzling the cat at the appointed time.
- Please post your cat name and the country you purr in at www.confuciuscat.blogspot.com as a COMMENT if you are participating in this historic project. (posting a link to your own website-if you have one-is encouraged.)
- Posting purrs on facebook and twitter is encouraged, since it inspires purring in others, but not required. On twitter please use #purrs4peace in your tweets.
Purrs shall triumph. Peace shall prevail! Purrs not guns!
