About the Movie
So I will admit I bawled like a baby throughout pretty much this whole movie. Although my hormones of my pregnancy or the fact that I’m unable to be near my own pups right now could quite easily be blamed! Susie’s Hope is such a touching story. I especially love the perspectives they used in filming some of the scenes! While the movie description will give you plenty of the story, I just really hope you’ll consider taking the time to get the movie or even donate to the cause. Honestly, any cause that helps animals with their care, legitimate ones. I’m not always convinced that these big charities are actually doing what they are supposed to be doing (this is not at all referencing Susie’s Hope). It’s our responsibility to ensure that we are donating to causes that are really helping.
Sadly, there are so many stories similar to this that don’t end so well. I’m thankful for someone who had the opportunity and were willing to stand up to bring attention to abused animals. They certainly need a voice. It wasn’t long ago that I saw a picture on facebook going around trying to find some fool hurting animals so that they could put help put an end to it. That’s a good start, but it really isn’t enough. Would you be that person who didn’t say anything about something like this for fear of hurting a friendship? Or would you be brave enough to put a stop to it and turn them in? The right thing isn’t always easy, but it is always right. I love the quote found at the end of the movie. “It may be true that the law cannot change the heart, but it can restrain the heartless.” -Martin Luther King, Jr. Another quote I will add, which is heard often from my husband, is this: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” -Edmund Burke. Don’t be one who helps evil to triumph, stand up and do something.
