Vick Sentanced to 23 Months in Jail

You can read the story from CNN.

All I can say is whatever you think about what he did, or how he should be punished, I really just hope some REAL legislation and action can be created to try to end the violence and cruelty (dog fighting, puppy mills, laboratory testing, etc.) to animals.

There are many comments at the end of this story on CNN...for and against what has caught my eye that I am going to post here:

"It's about responsibility as a member of the human race, not about black or white or rich or poor. The promotion of violence with the intent to cause another life to suffer for the sake of entertainment or enjoyment is not being responsible and is one of the many causes for the desensitization toward violence that our young people are being subjected to. Now more than ever, all humans need to wake up and realize that somewhere there is another that will look to us for guidance and direction. Do we want to foster more violence? Or do we want peace? What we put out is what we get back."

Especially during this holiday season, it's always good to remember: Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you, and it's truly better to give than to receive.
