(By Brian Richter, Pit Bulls are for Lovers Contributor, Owner of Bully Breed Evolution)
Through opened eyes we clearly see
and answer the animal’s plea.
We must see what others ignore
so we alone unlock secrecy’s door.
We look inside the anguished eyes
and we have the burden to be wise.
When others cover their ears
we are the ones to fight the tears.
All of our strength it takes
to endure when our heart aches.
When the images etch our mind
it’s justice we struggle to find.The screams mark our soul
to end the agony our common goal.
Silencing the wails cannot wait
in our hands we hold their fate.If only others would lend their voice
and for the helpless make the choice.
With each action we destroy or defend
on each decision so many lives depend..~Brian

We receive a lot of emails about isolated incidents where someone was hurt by a pit bull in attempt to discredit our entire movement. Today we are going to address this issue and set the record back on its toes. So to those who attempt these arguments against us in hopes to do a disservice to our cause, we challenge you to be open-minded and reasonable as you continue reading. We at “Pit Bulls are for Lovers” obviously do not want to see any harm become of any human being, which is precisely why we adamantly struggle to promote positive and responsible ownership of all animals, regardless of breed. In reality there are risks associated with most of the activities that we face in on our daily lives, and it is our own responsibility to assess whether those risks are worth taking or not. The amount of legislation that can be justified by your hyperbolic paranoia is infinite as we consider the things in our lives that can create harm if mistreated or misused. Your fear and ignorance about the dogs we choose to own is not a logical and reasonable way to determine if we should be able to have them or not. What you are doing is clinging to anecdotes about pit bulls without taking into consideration all of the variables that build the entire equation, which is disrespectful to both loving pit bull owners and those who were involved in the incidents you are exploiting. You are presenting misinformation and pseudoscience as factual evidence that pit bulls are an unstable risk to the population that must be countered with the force of law, when in reality the majority of pit bulls will never be involved in any sort of an attack. Instead of assisting a cause that seeks to save lives, increase knowledge, preserve individual liberty and promote love and respect, you are choosing to perpetuate myth, slander good law abiding citizens and erode our heritage of sovereignty. You have failed to decipher the difference between an entire population who love their pit bulls and treat them with the utmost affection and respect, with the scant few who choose to neglect and terrorize animals. We will thank you to re-evaluate your stance, and would appreciate an immediate ceasing of your libelous and unsupported claims against our families.
Pit Bulls are for Lovers.
