Round 20 – V
My 145-th entry – bijdrage
Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G
Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!
The challenging letter of this week is V and I’ve chosen for the word: Voice
We all have it… the one everyone can hear and the ones to few hear or not hear at all.
The voices of those still far to few hear are the ones of animals in need, all over the world. Social Media is, like everything else in life, something with a good side and something with a bad side.
I love animals, no matter which one, although the flying kind are my favorite.
On a daily basis I hear voices telling me about animal abuse and maybe I am a very stupid person but I can not understand what the reasons can be for an human being, besides survival, to do harm to any other living creature, especially an animal. Their voices cry from hurt, distress, despair and all other anguish. Why don’t “we” hear it, listen to it, do something about it? On the internet one can find countless petitions to help animals in need, many people sign them. Many voices protest ceaselessly, but still by far not many enough. So many people around the world, cry out and do their very best in trying to change laws, there still is a very, very long way to go.
Just a heartfelt request from me to you… please take the best possible care of an animal who relies on you, please stop hurting, please stop the slaughter of all those gorgeous creatures. Our planet is as much a ‘temporary gift’ to them as it is to us.
I can’t, sadly enough, but if I could?
My voice would be heard on the entire planet, by everyone, and in such capacity that nobody would be able to ignore it.
