This movie demonstrated how inhumane the practices for raising and slaughtering our beautiful animals, that we share this planet with, for meat, are. The slaughter houses need to do what they do to (I guess, but I can not imagine working that job and sleeping at night) in order to accommodate the rising demand for more and more meat to feed the ever bulging population of our planet. I am not going to get all preachy (hopefully), because I do love all of my friends (including my meat-eating friends), but I think if we are to ever heal our planet, we need to be aware of what it is exactly that we are doing to hurt our mother Earth in the first place. Not only is meat consumption of domestic animals eaten as the main part of our diet, unhealthy for us, but we are contributing to the horrible mistreatment of animals who are destined to spend an awful life, waiting to be killed so we can consume them. Plus we are raising the green house gases exponentially, by the the off-gassing that these innocent victims give off just by existing! If you think the farm where they are raised looks anything like Old MacDonald's Farm, think again. I wish it did.
I just know for me it is a moral decision to not push a baby cow away from his mother's breast, and off to slaughter as veal or whatever it is they do to destroy her, so I can have her milk in my morning coffee. That makes me fee awful.
Here is another not so vivid YouTube by Woody Harelson on social responsibility and awakening awareness that I like. I will leave you with this video. I love you where you are at. I love me where I am at. But, I know we can do better collectively with some awareness. And we can not bury our heads in the sand anymore. I am thinking of my grandchildren as well as the animals when I say this. Let's at the very least try our best to be aware of the impact we are having on our planet by what we are doing. Lots and lots of tender love to you! xoxoxo
