gestation-cratesWhile many of us are gearing up and hunkering down for a cozy holiday season, this and so much more is what’s going on in factory farms everywhere.

It’s painful to witness, but billions of cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and sheep are living this nightmare, 24/7. I’ve actually seen much worse. I’ve mostly watched slaughterhouse footage without the volume because I can’t bear the screams while they’re being tortured and struggling to live.

I actually end up feeling better by making myself bear witness to their suffering.

Without our help, they are completely defenseless and this will continue indefinitely until more of us take a stand against it. Imagine if you and your loved ones were suffering like this and no one was listening.

Awareness is the first step. Join me in allowing yourself to be bothered and become aware of what is happening to them. I’ve truly never been happier because of it!
