This is great. A very clever way to communicate important messages. Deserves sharing and the world sure needs it.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.

    Well – he didn’t get very far – did he?!!

  3. And that’s how some folks go about living life. Better a tree than a person if you drive and drink but generally that’s not the case. One drunk driver on the road is one too many. But folks have no shame and don’t care- the world, revolves only around them.

    This one has its own message. Would be nice if it were shown on television.

  5. Such a simple and sweet way to bring home very important lessons about how to be kind to the planet. I noticed while walking this morning a preponderance of candy wrappers and soda cans on streets and lawns in my neighborhood. It’s Spring Break and kids are out of school. Why aren’t young people more concerned with polluting their planet? I remember being a kid and thinking that littering was heinous. That’s a strong word, but that’s how I felt about it and I taught my son to respect the earth. The inside of his car…well that’s another matter… 😉

    Three very important facts simply illustrated to get the point over to people who don’t think of the consequences of their actions. Brilliant!

  7. YAY. You are getting sophisticated with your graphics — a techno whiz, and a writer. Nice message. Cheers —
