Sharing What I Learned About Greyhounds

Today in my English class, we were asked to write an editorial. I decided to write my editorial about greyhounds and the Buffalo Greyhound Adoption group, because I was really moved after interviewing Michelle Moore last weekend.

I thought it was really great to share what I knew about greyhounds with my friends. I liked raising some awareness of dog racing, and I especially like that Emily left me a comment yesterday about how some states have outlawed this.

I’m grateful that I had the chance to talk with my friends about this.

Nina is grateful for her teachers today. They help her learn and Mrs. Morath is the best!

  1. I used to live near a dog track in MA and I am so happy to think that now it must close

  2. Hi Laura,

    I just wanted to tell you that you inspired me today. Our company was hosting a Red Cross Blood drive today, and for the first time since high school I signed up to donate blood!! When the announcement came out, like always, I deleted it. Then I thought of you and your good deeds, and I walked downstairs to signed up as a walk in.

    Thank you Laura!

  3. Laura, you are an inspiration to us adults and to your peers. It is so wonderful the work you are doing and the lives you are touching just by your desire to help others. A friend of mine also adopted a greyhound a few years ago. This is such a good cause and a great editorial topic. I am an Instructional Technology Specialist in a small, rural school division in Virginia. I have added your blog to my blog page, sent out a twitter to others, added your blog to my delicioious network and shared via email your blog and efforts with many people I network with. I am hoping this will stir others into action into either helping you or starting something like this on their own. My own son who is 11 was impressed and now he is wanting me to help him figure out how to do something like this especially since he is in Boy Scouts and this would be a great community service project. Thank you Laura for your dedication, inspiration, and determination to making a difference. God Bless YOU in your efforts and all those you come in contact with. Anita Harris
