Oh, the circus!!!

Most of us have been to the circus one time or another.  But, do you really know what goes on behind the curtain?  Did you know that the baby elephants are tortured and electrocuted if they try to play?  I can't speak for all circuses but I know of one for certain.  The Ringling Bros.  Go to www.ringlingbeatsanimals.com.  Click on a few videos or slide shows.  You'll see what I mean!  Also, I feel like the stuff I post on here is a little intense, but I want you all to know what is really happening and why animal cruelty should be taken seriously.  So, here's my question:  Should I try to lighten up on my posts, or continue to posts videos and such like the last one?

XOXOXO, Courtney

PS. Take a stand!  I have alerted my local news stations and emailed the president for a few different cases.  Get involved!  The animals can't.  

PPS. Someone commented on my personal blog where I get my information on here.  Well, go to www.peta.org.  I am a member on there and get alot of material from them.  PETA stands for "People for the ethnic treatment of animals".  Bye!

Can someone please change the text to a darker colour, like a darker blue or black. That colour hurts my eyes and makes it hard to read....

Good for you for taking a stand! This is very inspiring--not what the circus is doing, but the fact that you did something. As for the intensity of the videos and such, I think that it' important that we understand whats going on, and I think that you're doing a great job of showing us. Maybe you can explain what the video's show so that the people that don't want to see it can still know what it's about.
