21 Feb A Culture of Cruelty
At my hair appointment, I was stunned to see the PETA magazine in their waiting area instead of the PEOPLE. I picked it up. Yes, living is easy with eyes closed, but that’s not me. We are truly a culture of cruelty and the horendous acts of abuse that we practice on animals is barbaric. I love all animals – domesticated, wild and farm. Reading that magazine was a brutal reminder about how important it is to be vegan and that animals are not ours for exploiting. It’s easy to be a dog lover and ignore the suffering of our other animal friends in this world. But how can we, when they share so many of the same characteristics that our dogs have. They are capable of learning and experiencing fear, joy, and pain. Peta has a campaign running where they ask, what if pigs said WOOF, would it matter? It shouldn’t. The most horrific acts are being practiced on pigs today. It’s not enough to just love dogs. Animal lovers needs to step up and make a commitment towards veganism. Both vegans and yogis – two groups that are highly committted to the welfare of others, know that true happiness can never come from practices that exploit and promote suffering of animals.
