The world is not what it used to be. The news seems to be dominated by grueling accounts of domestic violence, child abuse, civil unrest, and aggression, among other forms of society going berserk. As time goes, people become less concerned with such happenings, till it fades into the background. This is why we have so many people who do not care about what is going on around them. Time has come for there to be a difference.
Even children now find this normal. They too are getting more and more comfortable with random acts of violence. Nobody gets too concerned when something tragic happens to a neighbor. When we see other children suffering in the news, we could not care less since ours are safe.
All the time we see these happenings and do nothing makes us even more tolerant to the sheer magnitude of evil acts being committed, that we are supposed to stop. 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 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. 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 way these animals suffer goes to show people how far we have come as a society. It is almost normal to see the strong hurting the weak. 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 pose no threat to their wellbeing. 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. This will only happen when people admit 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. The Humane Society tries to do its part in creating awareness of what is the true picture of such cruelty. They need each of us to be the ambassadors for these animals.
