I can’t change the world. And you know, I can’t.
I absolutely can’t. I can’t make people more compassionate. I can’t stop people thinking that people who have their benefits taken away from them, deserve it. I can’t stop people laughing about bacon when all I can see is the pig who lived and died in a terrible way, just so they could eat something “nice”. And joke about it afterwards. In the same way I can’t stop people joking about people who “live on benefits”.
I can’t make people see the link – that the same people who are taking away animals’ rights to life are the same people who are taking away people’s rights to life … that when someone devalues animals, they are likely to devalue people too.
However, I CAN change the world for that one person, that one animal. And I am damned if I am going to stop. Not now. Not ever.
