Letter from Michelle sharing feelings of anger with the way humans treat animals - 20 Apr 2008

It's so sickening how humans think there so high and mighty that they have the right to do as they chose to animals.

I forced myself to watch all those vulgar clips.  I am still crying and internally screaming with anguish. I wish God would see there is enough of us so [who care] so that we could take control of these atrocities. I could go on and on, but I'll do that in places where people need to realise that everything doesn't magically appear on a supermarket shelf from thin air. I hope more of us can open eyes and ears of others to understand what a disgusting, barbaric world is out there and how they can help change it. 

I am a vegetarian [certainly one compassionate way of improving matters].

Regards,
Michelle Herrald (Darwin Australia)

Thank you for writing back.

You have come to the right conclusion. It doesn't work to vent your anger in violent ways. Violence only promotes more violence. The key to getting to these people is to embarrass them publicly by turning public opinion against them. We need to politely and peacefully turn public opinion against the animal exploiters.

We also pray and question why God doesn't bring an end to all this suffering, now. The only answer is that we (those of us with empathy) have been given that task, just as we are told in Romans 8:18-23.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
