“Voting With Our Dollars Defines The World We Wish To See”
By Paul Schulman
Do you have ANY idea what the animals are enduring as we speak? It’s behind closed doors for a reason. If you’ve ever seen a sick relative suffer in the hospital, you’ve been robbed and beaten up for something you cannot change about who you are, and people are making fun of you for it all at the same time, it doesn’t even come close to what they are going through. Slaughterhouse and factory farm workers, though likely good people in otherwise normal situations, are doing the unspeakable, committing legal crimes in the name of business as usual. What you buy in stores and restaurants says a lot about you. I’ve been deleted over the years by hundreds of people at the very least, and though I miss my “friends,” I would rather save lives than sugarcoat the truth and be a fake friend myself. It hurts like anything when I lose friends, but this isn’t about me. I will do anything to make this Earth more beautiful. This is something that is available to all of us regardless of our life circumstances and personal defining characteristics. We are all on a level playing field. I promise that I will do everything that I can to make this place better for people, animals, and the environment than before I got here.
