Our Silence About Animal Abuse Promotes Abuse of Humans
Comments by Karen L. Moore - 24 Aug 2003

Regarding Sierra's question about being made ill ourselves when speaking for animals.

One thing is to keep it brief, just mention a couple things. Of course, even that can make you feel sick, especially if the response of the other is a terrible disappointment.

I keep some wellness things in mind for if I feel myself getting a case of empathy.

Get more sleep.

Eat less and more carefully. Avoid people.

More time with Jesus thanking Him for His victory and reading His word.

Ask others to pray for me.

Shower love on my rescued cats.

An engaging book.

Physical activity.

Walk around looking at trees.

A couple years ago when I read that Kim Bartlett was going to go to Korea to photograph in the dog/cat meat markets I began to pray for her at once. Because I'd experienced real sickness over less brutality than that, I had an idea what to pray for, such as asking God to please free her from flashbacks of the sights, smells and sounds. It always amazes me that prayer is a real thing, it seems so unlikely.
