Keith Olbermann: The Resistance videos
Keith Olbermann (@TomJumboGrumbo on twitter) has gone deep into animal rescue with Anita. We support and embrace him for this. This does not mean he has left politics; treating animals as well as humans fairly and with kindness sets an example to us all. He says: "Unlike in so many areas of our current lives we can, individually, do something to defeat pain and death, if not for humans then for those who make our lives better."
Spread kindness and love.
Do all the things you do. Do them more.
BE YOUR OWN LIGHT.
YOU CAN DO SOMETHING.
