A Picture is Worth 1000 Words

If you wouldn't eat a dog or cat, why is a pig or cow okay?  You don't like those images of dogs being crammed into crates in China, but it's okay when we do it to every other animal imaginable?

 #Make the Connection

I wish more people would see the disgusting and disturbing photos of the conditions these animals live in and instead of saying, "I don't want to see that" they instead say, "That's horrible.  We should do something to stop that."  I understand that a lot of you will never give up meat regardless of how unhealthy it is to eat it; but, why are you standing in the sidelines while these animals are abused and tortured?  What's happening to us as a society that we are okay with sticking our heads in the sand and pretending these things aren't happening?

It makes me sad for these animals.  And it makes me sad for all the people unwilling to demand more, demand better for themselves and these poor tortured creatures.  If Gandhi was right, if , "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated," then we are a disgrace.
