Break Out Of The Mold

It takes courage to face reality. To see things as they truly are. To be awake and not asleep. It even takes courage to escape. You may ask, “escape from what? To what?” If only people could see more clearly, to think differently than what they were taught as children. To unlearn and have courage to break out of the mold. Parents in general are well meaning, but let’s follow what is right. Don’t follow just to follow.

Would children truly want to eat the inside of an animal if they never had started? And even if they tasted it but once, would they then start killing animals for the taste of them? Would it not be unlike them? There is something more to the packages of meat people buy in the grocery stores. There was the death of a cow, a pig, a chicken, a turkey and others in ABUNDANCE. Animals who could have had a happy life otherwise.

I grew up eating meat until the Summer of 2000. Now I see a hot dog or packaged meat for what it truly IS and WAS. It is now the inside of a dead animal that was once a living being who desired love and care from us. If people could start over, would they have the desire to eat the inside of animals? Or would it seem horrid?

Being an animal lover should go beyond just our pets. Who says a pet HAS to be a dog or cat or horse? If we love animals we need to realize that pets have always been…..animals.

Save them, don’t eat them. Be their hero. You do have a choice. I hope we all choose kindness over killing.

What If It Was Me In There?

Would you mind please and take less than two minutes to watch the video footage below of pigs at a factory farm? It doesn’t show any killing whatsoever. I believe it is appropriate even for a child of middle school age. Research has said that pigs are smarter than even dogs. They are very social. Because of this, they do not do well confined. In factory farms they are ‘always’ confined in cages with no room to even turn around. They never see the sky nor grass. They don’t leave the shed where they are kept. The results of being confined drives them mad. That is the reason when they are born on the factory farm, workers cut out their teeth, tails, and testicles to keep them from hurting each other through the cages. And still they go mad. It breaks my heart.

So I ask that you watch the video and ask “what if it was me in there?” All they want is….out. It’s pitifully sad. Please don’t support factory farms. Eating less meat means producing less animals in these kinds of conditions. Going meatless on Mondays is a great way to start.
