When “Just” Hurts (from Janet)

“It’s just rain”.

“It’s just some snow”.

“It’s just limping a little”.

“It’s just going to be slaughtered anyway”.

“It’s just a dog”.

In the world of humans versus animals, humans use word “just” a lot.

Why?

It’s a word that seems for many, easier to use in order to avoid or justify not taking action on something important or impacting; a socially acceptably method used to minimize an issue or a situation that honestly, shouldn’t be minimized.

But people do it. They say it. They use it – every day. Summing up something important as instead, making it sound like, “hey, it’s not that bad”.

But you know what? It is that bad.

Think about these sentences again, with a different slant:

It’s going to be slaughtered anyway.

It’s just a dog.

Shame on anyone who thinks it’s okay to “Just” an animal in need.

Unless, of course, you’re going to JUST DO SOMETHING about it.

  • #Happiness! One tiny post that came our way on our Facebook Home page turned into some BIG. We reached out to the person on that post, she called us, we introduced her to someone who could help, and as a result of our chat, 12 shelter dogs that were on an Alambama euthanasia list, will be driven to Georgia for adoption. THIS is networking. THIS is bettering and saving the lifes of animals in need. And all it took was a phone call. #MakeThatCall
