The world is growing more and more violent with each passing day. 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, the expected reactions from people tends to fade away. You will see then so many people who do not mind what is happening all around them. It is time we did something about it.
Children are growing to accept this status quo. 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.
Every time we ignore what is presented to us in shocking detail, we kill that humane side of our lives that is supposed to guide us to do better. 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. 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.
People are also actively getting violent against animals in their neighborhoods. People who keep pets may find this absurd. This will however not change the fact that it is what is going on.
These acts only serve to highlight the fall from humanity human beings have managed. It is almost normal to see the strong hurting the weak. This is why someone would be comfortable with hurting a pet that only wants to be loved. Pets are simply not able to survive without their owners. They would never start haring their owners. Human beings therefore need to start treating them differently.
People need to rise up and do something about such acts. There are many animals that demand some form of help. This will be the beginning of the end when people say that they see 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. It is trying to make people see hat s going on. They need each of us to be the ambassadors for these animals.
