Well it’s over and the New Year looms. Hope it will be a bearable one for people & a far kinder one to all our fellow animals and creatures.
I have been very heart broken and devastated recently about how the meat eating population (or carnists as I like to refer to them) treat the non-human animal. Needless to say I won’t go there; voicing my opinion on meat eating or the industry isn’t going to change anything. The needless cruelty to satisfy the appetite will continue long after I’m gone. The whole world it seems, is in denial about what is right but woefully impressed and fed by what is wrong. As carer to my mother who is also vegan my ability to love has become a tsunami. The bond between us has obliterated any need for vanity, company, socializing or even ‘connecting’ with the world out there because there is basically nowhere I want to be than with someone who understands my love for them completely simply by watching my face.
And because of our connection, my empathy for creatures has also heightened to such a degree that I’m finding it very hard indeed to even ‘chat’ with anyone who involves themselves with murder for meals. I have been campaigning, and trying to get people to listen to their hearts either through media or my art. I’m sure it does nothing. But it seems to help me. Which is vital because Mum needs a carer…..& I have to care. So, I truly hope that my partner in crime will still be with me in 2016 because I have never needed her and my immediate loved ones so badly.
This is a beautiful planet but has the misfortune to be run and organized by ruthless criminals that call themselves ‘decent human beings meeting the demands of an ever growing world’. Yes. How true. How selective. How disgusting. How abhorrent that mankind really thinks himself above anyone weaker or who he regards as ‘sub-human’.
