Another day away from the burbs (these kind of events rarely happen in suburbia). It was the first time I attended National Animal Rights Day in Union Square. It began with a moving ceremony memorializing the loss of all the animals who die unnecessarily and continued with a group reading of the Declaration of Animal Rights. Don performed Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings during the memorial ceremony, which made me very proud! Here’s a clip:
After the ceremony, several speakers and musicians took the stage. A group yoga session was included too. What a peaceful way to advocate for animals! It was such and important event and I hope to get more involved next year.
