I am a passionate animal lover ... I find animals to be much more pleasant than humans. They are forgiving, loyal, fun to be with and can teach us unconditional love and simple joy in their presence. I've been on protests against cosmetics companies for testing on animals and using animal products. For over 20 years now, I haven't used any products that have been tested on animals or use animal ingredients. For the best part of that 20 years I've tried to be vegetarian, always choosing a vege meal when I can when I'm out which means putting people out when visiting for a meal. But I find myself struggling over the last year or two ... I've found myself eating meat once more ... on my way home from work my taste buds would crave something savoury so I turned to KFC until I was reminded how they treat their chickens so I've given that away again. Even though pork products are the tastiest meats around, I have tried (and succeeded) lately to resist the temptation. I've even had a couple of Maccas burgers recently ... how could I contribute to this slaughter?
I'm ashamed of this and I'm extremely ashamed on behalf of the human race for what I've just witnessed in "Earthlings" by Shawn Monson. This is a brilliant, insightful yet heart-wrenching documentary of animal abuse. I didn't think I'd make it to the end but I forced myself not to wimp out. I shed a lot of tears though. Now, what's even harder to do, is to convince others to watch it and take notice of just how despicable the human race can be towards other beings on our planet. EVERYBODY needs to see this documentary, no matter how hard, no matter how many times it takes you to get through it ... this awareness is the ONLY thing that will effect change in our relationship with animals of all kinds.
