Cockfighting is Barbaric. Please help STOP this ..happening in my own hometown . We need your signatures !!!!!!


Be the Change You Want to See !!! Please SIGN for this cause.

Dear All…

The Government of Sint Maarten – the island where i was born and raised – condones cockfighting.. claiming that it is part of our ‘culture’ . I don’t know what culture they grew up with but this is NOT part of mine. It is an act of cruelty, selfishness and SHOULD NOT BE CONDONED, CONTINUED OR CONSIDERED PART OF ANY CULTURE !!!!

They HAVE the power to stop this …yet they consider it something which is ‘okay’ . .. We are well aware that if a human being can condone an act of cruelty on an animal…. a being with NO VOICE.. then we can also be aware of what THAT human being is capable of doing to his fellow man. I URGE you to think about this. and help us stop this moronic nonsense !!!!

I have over 9000 fans (on my facebook fanpage) I’ve quite a large network.. not to brag but to prove a point..that if people are listening.. we can speak up and be heard… nomatter how impossible the goal.

….. i do not believe in having a fanbase/network if i cannot do something to make a change in this already messed up world we live in. I want to be the change i want to see… i need YOU to help me.

I urge you.. to take a minute or two.. and PLEASE .. sign the petition.

” Cockfighters hack off the roosters’ wattles and combs (the flesh at the top of their heads and under their beaks) before a fight in order to prevent other roosters from doing the mutilating themselves.  The birds’ natural spurs (the bony protrusions on their legs) are cut off so that cockfighters can strap on razor-sharp 2-inch steel blades, which are capable of puncturing lungs and gouging eyes.  The birds are partly plucked, oiled and injected with a special mixture to harden the skin and to make them aggressive.  Two birds are then placed in an enclosure where they fight to the death.  The dead losers are dumped together with the severly-injured winners, also left to die.

Cock fighting is all about gambling.  Huge sums of money change hands amongst the supporters of this blood sport.  Spectators crowd around the ring to shout and encourage their chosen bird to kill its opponent.  The bloodier the better.” 

We have nearly 3000 signatures on the online petition. Please continue sharing it and let’s get 5000 in 2 weeks!

please please please HELP US  HELP THEM!!!!

My Horoscope..for today ( 06-04-2012 )


Sagittarius :

“Wounds must be allowed to heal in their own time. Nothing bought in any store can accelerate healing processes. Something in your world, probably from your past, is not being allowed to heal in ways it wants to or should be. Your determination not to let it alone stems from a perceived need to cling to an aspect of it. It is time to accept something in the past must remain there.”

i love this horoscope service i have on my BBM..it’s always on point…

I DO very much believe i am holding on to some aspect of the past… in my heart i think it might be a form of trauma..inflicted upon me by an abusive boyfriend…a strict father? a very small minded community growing up? These thoughts come to mind because despite the people i have met who have told me time and time again that I am worthy of the world…it’s mine if i want it.
I internally find it difficult to believe, I’m so afraid of believing too much in myself… afraid of high hopes being crushed. At the same time.. i applaud myself for following my dream….earning a living doing what I love and inspiring others as much as i can… odd how i can be that emotional hypocrite to myself… aiding this battle which i am pretty sure i won already but i keep fighting. Maybe i’m just a very complicated woman.. or as a friend once told me… ‘ an old soul ‘ who knows.

we all have issues… i get closer and closer every single day of figuring out what mine are. never too old to learn something new..about yourself. no matter the age..we never ‘know it all’ …

and the older i get… the more i grow … the easier it is to understand why we must let go.. but the more challenging it becomes to do it … change comes as something unnatural to some of us… we fear it… but only with change can we truly progress … and develop… like any life process on this beautiful and  infected planet we all share. We should let go… it is in itself..the freedom we all search for.. but nothing worth getting was ever easy… and i am stubborn… but ..since i want change.. i’m going to allow myself to let go of something.. even if just for a bit ..each day.. from this point on. so it begins….again.

Photo Source: i no longer have the url where i got this from. :s if anyone knows the source..please feel free to post it in a comment and/or inbox me =) info@sarinagito.com  thank you.

No Copyright Infringement Intended !!!

BTW..if you are curious what your horoscope says… let me know.. i’ll post it here… Thank you so much for following this blog and reading the thoughts i choose to share … =)
