That's right, I said 1968.
And to kick off the year, here's "A Prayer for All Animals" written by Albert Schweitzer.
Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for
animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or
frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all
Thy mercy and pity, and for all those who deal with them we ask a heart of
compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true
friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
May it be a good year for all beings in your house.
