Thanks Lin! If I have anything to offer, though, it's because I've had great people around me. Thank *you* for your compassion, and your support.

You're an inspiration man! Will your trial be happening at Transylvania County Courthouse in Brevard, NC? I would like to attend and perhaps peacefully protest/demonstrate outside the building. Do you think this would be alright?

Thanks, my friend. Yes, that's where it will be. There's a Facebook event page where we'll be updating folks who want to come in person. It's definitely helpful, as we want to show the prosecution (and jury) that the public supports animal rescue, and not animal abuse. https://www.facebook.com/events/2304591459676552/?active_tab=about

Thanks, I'll be there! And I'll be sure to spread the word to my local vegan community.

An unspeakable truth haunts the land, that mankind can be lured, baited and bribed to accept the bargain of megatechnics, a possible life spent in denial of an abandoned birthright, which is one's own place in a living cosmos and a human community, and accept the misleadership of men of affairs, who appear to do something purposeful, but it turns out to be a mean purpose, and the opposite of smart. I wish I could jump on a bus to go join some people aware of this fact.

May our Heavenly Father be with u every moment of ur time & comfort u in His Ways. I'm sure that He's pleased to see that u save a lamb? If so, it's like Jesus Christ as the Lamb. I know that our Heavenly Father is with u all the time & hope that He comforts u in His Arms while u're here in the prison? U really don't deserve to be sent to the prison just for rescuing the lamb. I'm asking our Heavenly Father to help rescuing u out of the prison because u should never be sent to the prison, if u were already sent to the prison. Our Heavenly Father, Holy be Thy Name, Thank Thee for all the blessings, Please help set that man free from the prison as soon as possible because he rescued the lamb. For Thine is Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, Forever & Evermore in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen. I hope that our Heavenly Father will help setting u free from the prison as soon as possible.

Have you considered crossposting your blogs to Medium? It’s another popular blog site with a good algorithm for recommending different blogs. It could be an easy way to get even more exposure.

Probably my most important blog post was published on Medium. https://medium.com/direct-action-everywhere-dxe/the-dog-i-took-a-beating-for-e24fdbb3ed7f

But it seems to be dying, a bit, and it doesn't allow you to manage a mailing list the way substack does. Worth thinking about, though. THanks for the tip.

Very powerful commentary Mr. Hsiung. I will post your articles and trial news to my coalition, Animal Lives Count Coalition, so every activist is aware of what is going on. I started my coalition to bring as many activists and groups together as possible to speak as one louder than thunder. We need more brave, passionate, and compassionate people like you in the movement. True change will happen when we get more vegans/activists into positions of power. We will support you any way we can as this trial is monumental and a victory can create sweeping change. I do worry about where the trial is. Please let me know if there are letters we can write on your behalf or something else we can do to help. I will certainly call forth any activists who live in the area to please go and support you in person.

I feel that u need somebody to cheer u up with heartfelt words as u really need to read. I couldn't believe that the police officer arrested u as ur truly kindhearted by rescuing the goat. Sometimes the police officers were bad & not perfect officers. Ugh pout Dang that that police officer was not really that good officer. Shaking my head... My heart goes out for u. Please stay strong & always have our Heavenly Father within ur heart, mind & spirit daily.
