.think about it-documentary.Earthlings."If slaughterhouses were made of glass we would all be vegetarians."

Here is the link if you would like to watch the entire documentary:

"EARTHLINGS is a powerful and informative documentary about society’s treatment of animals, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix with soundtrack byMoby. This multi-award winning film by Nation Earth is a must-see for anyone who cares about animals or wishes to make the world a better place."

This is a documentary which I attempted to watch almost a year ago. Within the first 10 minutes I was in tears and nauseous from the devastating graphic content. I have felt guilty for not making it through the entire documentary since that day. I took the time today to watch the entire video. 

Terrible treatment of animals is not a topic that any of us are new to in terms of; production of food, entertainment, fur trade, and medical experimentation. It is a topic that has been touched by all of us at least once in our lifetimes. It is also a topic which we discuss, period. 

I feel that a very minuscule  amount of us have taken any action to put any end to this. As a result of inconvenience of meal preparation, the marketing and media behind meat production where "if slaughterhouses were made of glass, we would all be vegetarian", and an ability to mentally block out what is going on in terms of animal cruelty and abuse.

"To say that ignorance is bliss" could not be rung any more true. Having my eyes opened to this video has motivated me to "be the change you wish to see."

"...ignorance is not the inability to find out what is going on , as much as the desire to not know the facts that may be heavy on ones conscience, that is responsible for this lack of awareness."
