Six-Year-Old Showed Love and Respect for Everyone, Including Animals
Va. -- Six-year-old Catherine Violet Hubbard used to dote on her beloved
rabbit and always helped her arthritis-stricken dog stand up when she wanted
some food or water. She loved to watch baby birds in their nests and reveled
when butterflies would land on her. According to news reports, she would even
whisper to insects, "Tell your friends I'm kind." That ended when
Catherine became one of 20 children and six educators who were killed in the
Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown,
Conn., in December.
help honor Catherine's memory, PETA will add an inscribed golden leaf dedicated
to her to
its Tree of Life
monument at PETA's national headquarters in Norfolk,
as well as a rose bush to PETA's memorial garden, where Princess Diana, Lady
Linda McCartney, and other compassionate souls
are honored. PETA's Tree of Life is dedicated to individuals whose actions make
a positive difference for animals. Catherine's
leaf reads as follows:
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
CATHERINE VIOLET HUBBARD
FRIEND TO ALL ANIMALS
her short six years, Catherine showed a capacity for compassion that inspired
everyone around her, and we hope to do our part to make sure that her memory
continues to encourage kindness toward others without regard to their
species," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Most
children instinctively love animals, and thanks in large part to her
parents, Catherine was encouraged to foster that love. Had she been allowed to
live, Catherine could have been a driving force in the effort to win for
animals the respect that they deserve."
dreamed of running her own animal shelter one day, and her parents are intent
on keeping her dream alive: The Hubbards have announced plans for the Catherine
Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary in Newtown, where visitors can see and
learn about animals rescued from abusive circumstances.
