Have you ever been tied up or held captive and forced to endure great pain and torture? The sensitive creatures we call animals have to face it everyday!
It happened to me when I was 5 years old. The intense emotions have stayed with me and left me with a life of stuttering!
I can tell you it’s a horrible feeling! I had to endure being burned with hot coals! You’re powerless and you have to take it all in! You look at the coldness in your captive’s eyes and know they are capable of anything!
I now realize that they were just releasing their own negativity upon me. A form of misplaced aggression.
But when you’re being purposely restrained and harmed and it’s more like being at the mercy of evil alien beings.
I wonder what animals are thinking when they are being hurt and held prisoner. I’m sure they don’t understand why they are treated so brutally. When I was 5 I didn’t.
But they do experience fully the pain and torment as any human would.
Pigs have the intelligence of a 3 or 4 year old human child. So basically they react the same way a small child would under the same circumstances.
They really just want to be our friends and live along side us in peace.
We could live harmoniously with them instead of caging and torturing them.          
We have the ability to make the lives of animals so much better.
But when we are consuming them it blocks our ability to have compassion for them.
We develop an unfeeling and indifferent attitude towards them so we can stuff their flesh down our mouths!
We are apathetic towards their pain so we can wear their skins and their fur or use their feathers for blankets.
Most of the time these are ripped off of them while they are still alive.
Factory farms which account for 95% of the meat at supermarkets have zero compassion. Fur farms also have zero compassion. Small local farms may have some compassion for awhile but shut off those feelings in order to profit from the poor animals untimely and premature death.
I appeal to everyone who is in the animal exploitation/murder industry and the ones who are buying animal products! Stop This Madness!
We were never meant to eat animals! Their flesh has no has no enzymes for digestion and as a result rotting flesh sits in the intestines for days spreading harmful bacteria as the body struggles to break it down. Poisons are produced because of it’s acidic nature which leads to cancer and kidney failure. The cholesterol and saturated fats smothers our organs, tissues and cells causing all sorts of health conditions such as diabetes and fibromyalgia. It blocks passageways causing strokes, heart attacks and Alzheimers disease.
I experienced briefly what the animals go through. I wanted desperately to return home and be with my family. I wanted to live out my life and not have it end at such a young age. A moment of opportunity appeared and miraculously I was able to escape.
But 99.9 percent of farm animals are not so fortunate. 
Animals want what we want. They want a home and a family and a nice place to sleep. They want friends, companionship and love. They want to be free and have the liberty to go where they want. They want to play and explore. They want to run in an open field or roam around in a forest. They want to live out their lives in peace!
But instead they suffer while being rigorously restrained. Then they are forced to the slaughter house at a young age dying a slow brutal death.
Until we stop treating animals like objects and slaves we will never be fully human.
And unless we stop unleashing our loathsome and repulsive negativity upon innocent beings we will remain on a path of self destruction.
