What tragic news.

Brittany Maynard, a beautiful and courageous woman who suffered from terminal brain cancer, sadly ended her life Saturday at the young age of 29.

Despite Brittany's recent blog post that suggested she planned to postpone ending her life on November 1st, it appears the death with dignity advocate decided it was the right time to put an end to her suffering.

In her final blog post, Maynard, penned:

"Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love. Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me but would have taken so much more. The world is a beautiful place, travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers. I even have a ring of support around my bed as I type … Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!"

Wow. Maynard's ability to stay positive moments before her death is beyond moving. We have no doubt that her gorgeous life and activism will leave a profound mark on the world.

We send our condolences to Brittany's husband, Dan Diaz, her mother, Debbie Ziegler, and her stepfather, Gary Holmes.

James Cromwell Exposes Walmart Pig Cruelty!

Filed under: Animal RightsPigDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

James Cromwell is a talented actor and a huge animal rights activist.

Hell, he's even been arrested during a cat abuse protest!

He's willing to put his freedom on the line for the animals! He's so great!

James narrates a GRAPHIC video of hidden camera footage from within a pig factory farm captured by a Mercy for Animals agent.

The pigs are subjected to beatings, violent medical procedures without pain killers, mama pigs stuck in gestation crates and more awful things.

This is where Walmart gets its pork.

So many other companies and even the entire European Union don't use gestation crates, but Walmart is heartless and awful.

Check out the video (above) to see this awful cruelty, but be aware it is very GRAPHIC!

It is hard to feel sympathetic towards a guy like Michael Vick if you're a dog lover.

But violence against violence is NOT the answer!

Vick recently had to cancel stops on his book tour because he was reportedly receiving death threats from anonymous people who still hate his guts.

But Vick is undeterred and will continue his tour.

Although he is confused why some people he's never met are threatening his life.

He said:
