The Fight for Animal Rights
The world is not what it used to be. You will see many examples of how people hurt themselves, their spouses, children and everyone else around them. With time, people tend to get less affected by what they hear, till it sounds normal. This is why we have so many people who do not care about what is going on around them. We need to make a change to all this.
Even children now find this normal. They see no problem with all the violence around them. A neighbor can suffer, and nobody realizes. Even if it is children suffering when we see the news, we tend to quickly brush it off, since it is not our children anyway.
Every time we ignore what is presented to us in shocking detail, we kill that humane side of our lives that is supposed to guide us to do better. We see people being harmed, human trafficking, slavery, and yet we do not rise in protest. This is why reports of animal cruelty do not get the reaction they deserve. This is why so many reports of this nature have no significant impact on the audience. Animals are being used as testing objects for so many experiments, most of them downright cruel to them. The meat industry is also a major contributor to this.
People are also actively getting violent against animals in their neighborhoods. It is hard for someone with a pet to imagine such cruelty being meted on such lovely creatures. It is, however, the reality of so many animals out there.
The suffering of these animals highlights the extent of the damage ignorance of the facts at hand has reached. The strong are oppressing the weak more and more. This is how someone would go out of their way to hurt a pet that has not caused them any trouble. Pets are dependent on people for their survival. They are the least interested in hurting these people. They thus deserve better treatment from these people.
People need to rise up and do something about such acts. There is no shortage of animals that need someone to go out of their way to help them. The least people can do is to acknowledge that there is a problem. We need to stop accepting the evil committed against out neighbor. It is important that when we see advertisements of animals suffering, that we do not leave it at that. We need to see how best we can support organizations like the Humane Society of the United States. It is out there campaigning for the protection of the rights of these animals. They need each of us to be the ambassadors for these animals.
