It is so terribly important that even animal lovers are kept aware of the horrible abuse man heaps on animals. We need to come together and become ONE voice, for they who cannot speak for themselves. If cruelty to animals hurts you; can you even imagine the terror of the poor animals that suffer it everyday. It is not OK!
This is the one issue that can completely change my personality; from the most docile, anti-violent person to a raving maniac. Laws MUST be changed, people MUST be enlightened and the brutality toward our pets; farm animals; lab animals; and animals being tortured in any other name or for whatever reason, needs to come to a halt. Human beings torture and murder animals for financial gain; for a thrill; or just because they are sick people with nothing better to do. And it is not OK!
One day the gentle people of the world will have had enough of the sheer brutality in the treatment of these innocent, trusting creatures, and things will change. It has been allowed to go on, with little punishment or consequences, for so long, that the people who are able to, tend to turn their heads and ignore it. Animal advocates need to get louder and let others know that it is not to be tolerated. It is NOT OK! Just knowing of the cruelty that is going on, ALL THE TIME, somewhere, makes my life less than it could be. I cannot just, NOT think about it, when it is all around me, and that hurts me, and I am made to suffer also. Because it happens and because nothing is done about it. Well, it is not right that people who feel like I do about the treatment of animals, should have to suffer. If the action of one person hurts another, it is usually wrong. In the case of animal cruelty, we are made to think, maybe WE are wrong for it bothering us so much. But that is only because we have allowed this way of thinking to go on for so long. IT IS NOT OK! If it hurts other people and disturbs their life, liberty and their pursuit of happiness, it has to be WRONG! We need to get louder! We have to get stronger in our defense!
"If You'll Stand For This, You'll Stoop For That!"
Ever hear that? If someone doesn't stand up to wrongs when they happen, then they will keep happening. Some people will do whatever they are allowed to get away with. If people think it is alright to treat any animals however they want, how long until you or I will be the victim? Cruelty is cruelty. If you learn to enjoy it, then you enjoy it regardless of the victim. We have far too many people who are arrogant enough to believe they can treat other lives however they feel like. We have way too much child abuse, spousal abuse, elder abuse, AND IT ALL BEGINS WITH ANIMAL ABUSE!!! Arrogant people thinking it is their right to hurt other living beings...human or otherwise. Just because they feel like it. NO! That is NOT OK!!
Let's stand up for the voiceless who have no choice in their treatment. It is OUR choice and we MUST make it NOW!
Thank you for coming and let me know if you, too, believe it is time to stand up and start changing things.
