I watched 40 minutes of the film Earthlings. Have you seen it?
A week or so later, my wife and I spent some time looking at pictures of the animals at Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary near Salem, Oregon.
I realized with a deep shiver of recognition - these faces look different to me, more revealing, more real, more alive, filled with more character and personality than I'd ever before realized!
And this is the next step of my journey toward saving animals. Non-human animals. Those who can't even fight for their own rights.
I would like to spread awareness of the amazing abilities, character, and depth of other animals.
I would like to spend time getting to know farm animals in person, working with them, learning about them.
I would like to more fully understand what happens to the animals that are raised for food, and spread this knowledge further.
I would like to figure out a way to bridge the enormous gap between those who seem to understand how much animals suffer for human use...and those who don't.
And I would like to be more consistent in my own food choices, to be "as vegan" as possible, to further support this cause.
