2017 Experience

This ASB trip proved to me how important it is to familiarize myself with a person or situation before making any judgments about them. Donkeys’ lives are at stake because of our tendencies to dislike and fear the unfamiliar. Thankfully though, we can work to overcome this mindset. The rescue’s workers proved to me that there is hope; there are people out there who can see past the stereotypes and work to educate the public to do the same.
