I've signed and posted this on my website on my Blog and on Jasper's Blog and on Facebook.

This video was VERY hard for me to watch. But I believe in not turning a blind eye to what I wish didn't exist. I believe that by focusing a spotlight on abuse, I am honoring the abused in the best possible way.

People need to feel outrage for the injustice in this world. People need to face the abusers and make them accountable. In whatever ways we can, we need to do our part to right the wrongs and end the tragic treatment of animals and humans on this planet. Signing petitions is one way to voice your opposition to the inhumanity in this world. I have to believe signing petitions is a step -- albeit small step -- in the right direction. I'm utterly appalled by the treatment of pigs at Smithfield Foods. How did we let this happen??? And the idea that it's going to take YEARS to end it is an abomination.
