To Be Honest

People are being mistreated and slaughtered, animals are being mistreated and slaughtered, the Earth is being mistreated and slaughtered.
What are we doing?
People with limited authority, who were given that limited authority, to help and protect others are abusing that power and they care not on whom they use that power, yet so many are blatantly blind to this obvious and very visible wrong doing and defend it when it could just as well be you or yours as it could me. People are going to other countries and disrespecting nature as well as the people of those countries by slaughtering and harming the animals unecessarily for personal, selfish gain. Lions are being murdered, beheaded, and skinned, rhinos having their horns cut off and being left to die, elephants having their tusks cut off, sting rays having their fins cut off, sharks being murdered, having their fins cut off and being left to die, bee populations are at an all time low, and yet there are so many who see this and say nothing. Thousands upon thousands of acres of rainforest’ are cut down every day, entire ecosystems destroyed, and what are people doing? Trying to get the new, latest, popular thing that does not benefit you or anything else for that matter.
WAKE UP. Wake up and See. See what is happening right in front of your eyes. Help!!!!! Do not lend a hand in your own destruction! The time has come to rid ourselves of the old ways and ideology of superiority and dominion over things that are not and never were yours. Nature, land, animals, and people are the property of Life. We do not own each other and we do not own this world. We are a part of it.
It is unimaginable, the damage that is going to ensue if people do not wake up right now and start helping to better what we can. Too much damage has already been done and we are going to continue to suffer for it. What with the horrible natural disasters, uprisings around the world, animal species disappearing at alarming rates, ice disappearing at alarming rates. We. Have. Got. To. Wake. Up. We have GOT to change. WE HAVE TO DO BETTER. NOW. RIGHT. NOW. The longer we wait to start changing things for the better the worse it will be for ourselves and especially future generations. We can not let them bare greater hardships of the troubles careless people now and in the past have created. A lot of us did not start this mess, but we can surely begin to fix it. But we have to come together. If we each do our part, in one way or another, in many small or big ways, however you choose to do so, we can make life better. We can be better.
It is time to wake up, speak up, stand up, and do work. We have to. The consequences of our actions are already set in place for what has already been done, and we need to make sure that we do not worsen what is already coming. Please, please, please, do something. Do something to benefit us all. Be aware of humanities issues, animal issues, and the issues of nature. They are all your concern. They directly correlate to one another. Let’s not continue to be our own demise, because that is exactly where we are headed, to our own demise. Make not the world, yourself, and the future generations suffer for your comfort. Your comfort means nothing compared to the balance of life as a whole. And the thing is, when you contribute positively to humanity, animals, and the earth, it benefits you in all the best ways possible. So do your part. Stand up and help yourself and your fellow man, stand up and help the animals of this earth, stand up and help nature. It all connects. We are all connected. We are one people, of one earth, one home. Protect your people and your home. Make a difference.
If we can come together, stop separating ourselves, and be the one people that we are, we can do some pretty astounding, out-of-this-world amazing, and incredible things. Just imagine, a world where most of us are doing what we can to help everyone and everything. I mean, being completely honest, not everyone is going to be on board, but most of us can be. We can begin a very positive chain reaction. Let’s start it.
We Are One.
