We are a virus to the planet

Humans. We are considered the most intelligent specie in the world, yet we are the worst.

We judge, we kill, we steal,we pollute, we destroy.
In the past we thought the planet earth was in the centre of the universe but now we believe men is in the centre of the planet.

Because of factories, animal production and all the other gases and toxic chemicals that we emit we are destroying our planet.
It is thought that every day 150 species are extinct ( of course we are not sure because we are not certain of how many species there are in the world). 

And it isn´t just this that is wrong with us.

For every ten humans that die, 47,560 animals will be killed at the same time for human consumption. Over 150 billion animals will be slaughtered this year which equates to about 500 million animals a day.

The cruelty doesn’t end here, In China and many places around the world, animals are killed, tortured or skinned alive for their fur, with them getting electrocuted to death,
having their skin peeled off and being dumped on piles of skinned bodies, while still alive.
This happens millions of times a year and is so cruel that it can take these skinned animals hours to die, leaving them suffering for all that time. This is used to help make those fur coats which people wear and with tens of millions being killed a year, it’s one of the cruellest things which humans do to animals.

We also cause suffer to other people

We create wars because of money and power.
We don´t respect other cultures.
We judge people on their skin colour, sexuality, race and gender.

In the last post i said that it would be better if we lived life the way people lived in the beggining and these are just some of the reasons why i think this way.
But i believe we still have time, it will be a big journey but we can if we want

The change begins with you.
Dont´t waste, recycle, try to eat less meat, be a good person, don´t insult other people, be caring, Love people and the animals.
we are just one and if you dont treat well others you are not treating yourself right.
I am not perfect, i don´t do everything right but i know i can be better every day and you can too. So Start now, make the difference.

If you want more information here are some documentaries about:

how animals are treated in slaughterhouses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4TON3BxTxg

the effects of meat production in the environment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CJxGSatpbU

also  i have here a 5 minute video about the fur industry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAwHtWqV0sg

i don´t want in any way to insult you or your way of living. I still eat meat but i am trying to reduce the quantities. I still live with my parents and since they are the people that pay everything and cook is difficult to change quikly. I know that every situation is different so changes could be easier or more difficult.
I just can´t be silent. informing people is the first step for change and if this makes someone change even if it is just on person i will be happy.

life before everything

A long time ago life for people was easy, like any other animal alive.
We knew how to feel the wind that went through  our bodies, we knew how to relax and see the world.

We changed a paradise to something similar to hell with wars, works that people don´t enjoy and things that were put on our minds like… religion.  Even if you are religious  you have to agree that  it caused a lot of wars. A lot of people died because of that. Every religion wants the same and that is love, that everybody loves each other. unfortunatelly it seems that most of people don´t see that and it is sad. Of course we are not all good people so they invented church …  So they could take advantage from  people  who believed in god  ( i am not saying that religion Is a bad thing, it isn’t, you believe in whatever you want. Religion is one thing church is another).

With this i want to say that humans always had and they will continue to have this instinct to have more at all costs and we can`t do anything about it. If we have a tent, we want a house, if we have a house we want a mansion…
And we do so many bad things to accomplish what we want. We kill animals, we destroy the health of  the planet and we even destroy entire countries just because we want to be better than others.

A long time ago…Everything was simple. We were born, had children ( a lot of them) at 16 and then we died at 30/40 but we knew how to live, intensely. we did what we wanted to do.

We knew how to appreciate this gift called life, we apreciated simple gestures of affection and we knew how wonderful  this world was.
