One-of-a-Kind Animal Rights Book
Mission: "To give a voice to the neglected, abused and tortured animals of the world and to enlighten all people of the horrors committed in the animal-human arena"
Animals can't write books or take pictures or defend themselves. They can't reveal to sympathetic persons the horrors inflicted on them by humans. Most people aren't even aware of what really goes on in the animal-human arena. They can't relate that the packaged steak or chicken or seafood on the attractive market shelves came from the food chain underworld. Rarely are the pains and screams and tortured deaths of those meats on the dinner table considered at mealtime.
All God's creatures large and small
beautiful runners to those that crawl
Were put on earth for a life-like reason
not to have a killing season
Does that gentle, helpless farmyard beast
deserve to be some family feast
Did our mighty, loving Lord ordain
that for man's appetite they be slain
Or is there something we're overlooking
much more compassionate than for cooking
Could it be every animal deserves a life
free from the cruel fork and knife
Wouldn't man be a kinder, loving winner
eliminating his animal friends for dinner
Author / Photographer / Animal Advocate
For two decades she has traveled throughout North America photographing farm life and our natural environment. Her picture taking awakened her to the shockingly barbaric life of farmed animals and her growing empathy for these defenseless victims changed the direction of her career. Barbara now acts as an advocate devoting one hundred percent of her life and camera to putting an end to animal abuse. Her photographs have become an important tool in exposing the torture these animals endure simply for human consumption and manufacturing.
Much of her photographic work is donated to animal welfare organizations around the country. She also assists state authorities by documenting inhumane behavior of farm animals and live-stock within the state of Tennessee.
Barbara describes herself as incredibly lucky to have found her true life's passion. She says that discovering what mark your life is supposed to make on this earth allows you total commitment to a cause and that, she feels, is her gift.
Barbara earned a degree in photography and studied fine art, graphic design and journalism.
Dog-cat-what bird is as bright
if you guessed chicken you'd be right
Even the expression wise old owl
can very well read wise old fowl
Hens protecting their young are admired
a verse in the gospels they inspired
They love roosting up in a tree
when not roasting by KFC
A social animal, they have a family life
if they don't face the fork and knife
The cruelty inflicted by men to men
is not the same page as men to hen
Entire lives in crates or filthy shed
they wait for mercy to be dead
Non-laying hens are taken from the coop
and serve mankind in chicken soup
Or ready for this, you'll have no hunch
they are boned and canned for school lunch
Scalded birds, mutilated birds, "hey Perdue"
tortured birds, feces-laden birds, "what's the matter with you"
Millions of birds get no legal protection
if they were citizens there'd be an insurrection
So do as you wish to that tasty bird
their cries will never by the hungry be heard
