Help end the unbearable cruelty of meat

“As a citizen concerned about animal welfare, climate change, and biodiversity, I pledge to eat less meat (or no meat at all!), and encourage workplaces, schools, supermarkets, and restaurants to join in helping spread this critical culture change more widely. This will help animals, the planet, and my health, and contribute to keeping our planet safe for future generations.”

I’m already vegan, what about you?

When the Wood is no more
There will be woe in the World.
There will be no more laughter on the wind.

~ Traditional proverb

from The Speed of Darkness, by Catherine Fisher

“Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.” 

~James A. Froude

“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.” 

~Thomas Edison

Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is—whether its victim is human or animal—we cannot expect things to be much better in this world. We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. 

~Rachel Carson

Editing

Since one of my readers kindly pointed out that there was a spelling mistake in the title of one of my recent posts, I would like to make something clear. Usually, I try to edit at least the title of petitions, articles etc, but as I pointed out in a comment, I don’t have time to nitpick other people’s texts. If my readers object to any of the posts, it’s great if you can let me know in a comment. I’ll do my best to correct any mistakes right away.

4 Neglected Puppies Were Close to Death in a High-Kill Shelter – But Then This Happened!

A litter of four black puppies was recently left in a high kill shelter in Texas, surrendered to an easily predictable future – or rather to no future at all. In high kill animal shelters, dogs and cats are killed daily due to lack of room and bleak adoption prospects. Sick animals are the ones to be subjected to euthanasia first.

The #metoo campaign

This past week I’ve read about the #metoo campaign. It’s depressing reading. Today I found out that one of our most famous singers is in fact a rapist and also a person who takes advantage of his position to silence his victims. I don’t know who it is, and that’s really unsettling. It might be one of my favorites. The victim said (anonymously) that every time a friend sings along to one of his songs or even just plays it, she gets a flashback to that night and she can’t say anything about it.

What I really wanted to mention was the fact that my mom, sister and I have never (or at least almost never) been targeted. My mom has lived a relatively fun and varied life. She’s travelled a bit, worked in different professions and had lots of friends. Back in those days people were clearly better brought up. Or she’s been lucky and met only decent people.

My sister and I didn’t grow up in such a time. Girls we went to school with were probably targeted like these women that I’ve read about in the media over this past week. But not my sister and I. And – it may not come as much of a surprise to my readers – we’ve lived very sheltered lives. Most of the time we just sat at home and read our beloved books. We’re simply not very outgoing.

After reading all this depressing stuff, it hit me. Does it really have to be this way? Do you have to stay inside the safety of your own home to be respected as a human being?
