I lie awake at night, crying in Now

For all the evil in this world.

Instagram post of a man beating his greyhound to death because it lost a race. He was throwing the dog up in the air and slamming it on the ground.

My heart is shattered.

And the children in this world. So hurt. So hungry. So scared. So lost.

I am. I am so, so sad. I am crying so much, I cannot stop. The horror was so real in seeing those images (my dog is a greyhound mix and it hit Home I guess), and I can’t stop crying. The tears just keep rolling down my cheeks.
I feel like it will only stop if
1) I choose to ignore the suffering
2) if the suffering stops , for good.

I think the best we can do is to try and insulate ourselves from as much of the horror as possible, and do our best to make the world a better place.

A few months ago I saw a video of what happens to chickens born as boys into the poultry industry and it makes me cry whenever I think about it (here I go again). So now I'm vegan, I sign every petition on animal welfare that I can and share it where appropriate. I stay away from things that I know will upset me, but I'm doing my best to change things where I can. The world won't get better if we don't help it along.

Don't feel too bad though, your capacity for love and empathy are beautiful things to be cherished x

That is amazing that you are vegan, and that opening your awareness to those injustices prompted you to change. That gives me hope.

Thank you.<3

It is because people ignore it, that it is allowed to continue.

You are very right.
