“Once a human makes a connection with non-human animals, it’s nearly impossible to kill them. It’s why those in the slaughter industry do everything they can to disconnect themselves from the terrified animals whose lives they end. If every one of us could see the individuals we pay to have killed for us, if we could name them, if we could hear their voices and watch their babies being born, we’d beg for their lives to be spared and realize how quickly our palates and tastes can change.
My hope is that the billions of animals brought into this world only to be killed won’t have to wait much longer for us to make the connection. Time is running out, and our hearts are dying as we stop theirs. May we have the courage to open our minds and hearts to those we cannot see, to those we have not named, to those we have not loved. It is only through human consciousness that animals will be free from harm.” ~Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
