Wild Pigs…

I received this email today and wanted to share it with you. I do not know who wrote the piece, but I found it quite compelling to think about. We should all think about it lest we find ourselves one day soon captured like wild pigs. This is happening to us everyday, slowly, but thankfully no longer unnoticed!
