Take action now

I am sure you are all aware of the beef recall that took place over the weekend. It sickens me to think that we are a nation of barbarians. Meat was placed on the planet for us to use as a food source. However, we have lost our stewardship over the beasts of the field and animal abuses are happening daily somewhere on U.S. soil. It is no wonder the rest of the world hates us for our self-centered lifestyles.

We as a people need to stand up and demand change. You can begin by going here:

I did not watch the video. There is no need to. We all know that using and abusing animals in this manner is wrong. The people that condone these practices should be put down themselves. In the name of money these things take place. So if you wish, go sign the petition.

I have a better suggestion too. Stop buying meat from your local grocers or big box store. Do some research and find a local growers whose practices you can condone and purchase meat from them. Do not succumb to the mentality of "it's only meat, it comes wrapped in pretty cellophane, it must be safe or they wouldn't sell it mantra". I am not a vegetarian, but I am close to becoming one.

Do something now. Change your behavior and maybe you'll help change the world.
