The world is growing more and more violent with each passing day. You will see many examples of how people hurt themselves, their spouses, children and everyone else around them. As time goes, people become less concerned with such happenings, till it fades into the background. The result is a people who are comfortable with a shocking amount of violence in our environment. We need to make a change to all this.
Children are growing to accept this status quo. They see no problem with all the violence around them. A neighbor can suffer, and nobody realizes. We shall only be bothered by the number of children suffering out there, so long as ours are safely home.
The instances when we turn a blind eye to the injustices committed against fellow men go to make even blunter the instincts that are supposed to guide us to making better decisions. We see people being harmed, human trafficking, slavery, and yet we do not rise in protest. When it comes to the issue of animal cruelty, we are found already ignorant of suffering to care much about it. You will thus see so many instances of such reports, but so little output from all that effort. This can be seen when animals are used as testing mules for so many experiments and trials, most of them simply too cruel. The meat industry also fails to handle these animals humanely.
There are so many cases of people behaving violently towards the animals they see on a daily basis. Those with pets will find it hard to think of such things being done to theirs. It is, however, the reality of so many animals out there.
These acts only serve to highlight the fall from humanity human beings have managed. 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 need their owners to make it through life. They pose no threat to their wellbeing. Human beings therefore need to start treating them differently.
It is important for everyone to rise up and do something about this. There are many animals that demand some form of help. This will only happen when people admit that there is a problem. There is a problem when people go missing and nobody bothers following up. We need to do the same for animals, every time it is announced that something like that has happened. We need to see how best we can support organizations like the Humane Society of the United States. The Humane Society tries to do its part in creating awareness of what is the true picture of such cruelty. Help support the work of the HSUS, and together, we can stop this cruelty.
