Enough is enough...

29 May 2014, 12:17

I have no doubt in writing this article that I will spark anger amongst some will call me insensitive and inhumane, I choose to write it anyways….

I have come to the conclusion that I have little to no empathy or sympathy towards the human race.

In comparison to my relationship to the animals of this earth, it a shining example of chalk and cheese.

I feel violently ill inside when I see articles about animal abuse, neglect, and mutilation. I am an avid reader of daily gossip, part of which includes 30 minutes a day catching up with articles from around the world on

Almost daily there are one or more articles about humans and their utterly disgusting behaviour towards God’s creatures and I feel so angry inside, I am well beyond sure that if you put the person conducting these heinous crimes in front of me, I would be able to kill them with no feeling of remorse of regret for my actions.

Humans (And I acknowledge I am generalising – My apologies for those of you not falling into this category) are such vile creatures. We use and abuse this earth and its resources and wonderful habitats, wildlife and animals with no regard for what we do to it, including the consideration of its or our future. We litter, and pollute, and kill our environment and show no shame in doing. In a day and age where technology is such, and we can refurbish, recycle and re-use such a vast amount of things from plastic, to glass and scrap metal, paper and cardboard, yet we cut down forests faster than we grow them, and buy plastic bags instead of re-using. We litter, throw away food by the bucket loads, and take for granted what we have been so blessed to be given.

When I think about humans as creatures, it dawns on me that we are destroyers. We do not think about our future, we harm on purpose not for self-defence, more so today than ever before, we lack insight to see the bigger picture, we waste, and we are ignorant of the fact that our generations to come, our children and grandchildren are to live off this planet to.

I see articles about humans that get the hard bargain, thrown in jails for crimes they ‘didn’t’ commit, people that get killed by senseless and cruel individuals, and thought I should be sad to say this, I feel little to no connection to them. I know I should. I know I should feel a sense of responsibility, I sense of sadness to see a fellow human endure such terrible nightmares, but when I think of humans as a population, as a whole, I lack pure empathy and sympathy because as a whole, I see how broken we are.

Animals on the other hand will never harm a person just for the sake of harming them. They do it for survival or instinct. They are a gift to the human race and should be treated as such. They bring so much joy and happiness.

I feel lost, and alone much of the time at my own ability to do more to protect them. I am a supporter or all non-profit and government supported charities. From the SPCA to rescue centres. I have put my plaque up, and pay my dues every month, I donate monthly, I have adopted rescue animals into my home (I currently have 4), I support BWCSA, I have donated my time and volunteered where I can. But no matter how much I do, it never seems enough. My sense of responsibility to animals overrides almost everything else in my life.

It is due to this that I am angry at the human race. Step up, take responsibility, put some effort it, don’t accept average at the norm, make the difference where you can. Donate time if you cannot donate money. Get your animals neutered and spayed. Prevent the ever growing population of cats and dogs that have no homes, that have no families to love. Don’t throw away your leftovers, give them to the needy. Recycle your shopping bags, plastic, glass and paper. Work towards a cleaner, more natural environment.

I know somewhere, someone will call me self-righteous. Cruel to humans or insensitive to people’s misfortunes. I deeply regret humans experiencing pain and loss, but if you gave me the choice between saving the human race or saving the environment and its creatures, I think you know which I would choose.

Earlier today I read an article about a young lady named Li PingPing. Recently she brought a kitten and beheaded it and if that wasn’t bad enough, she posted the pictures on line. Let me stand firm, if Li PingPing was standing infront of me, I would behead that woman and not think twice about doing it. That is an unforgiveable act of cruelty and deserves no forgiveness. We cannot save them all, but if every human gave just a little of their time, love and effort, we could make a huge difference.

Signed off – Enough is Enough, change starts with me!
