powerful video

From: Lisa S.
Sent on: Monday, July 22, 2013 9:38 PM
I just feel compelled to share this very powerful video in the hopes that it will have an impact on those of us who are not embracing a full on vegan lifestyle, yet.

 the video is not gory, and there is no blood shed.  the animals are "just in a truck" heading to their final stop in their short miserable life. this video, of activists showing a teeny bit of mercy in their final moments, sorta blew my heart into a billion pieces in a very unique way. i can't describe the emotions it brings forth, but they are powerful and make me recommit my life to helping these poor creatures that have so few of us speaking and fighting on their behalf. i hope this video has the same impact on all of you who watch and i hope you will share with your pre-vegan friends and colleagues. my question is "what would we all do in the here and now if these trucks were filled with our families, or our beloved cats and dogs? would we do everything in our power to stop this truck from taking our loved ones away? i think we all know the answer to that. my last question is "why is this any different and why do we act with such civility and complaisance?"
