On Halloween we make light of the various spooky, albeit non-existent monsters that thrive in tales of horror.
In actuality, many horrific things are all too real: war, disease, dying, physical and emotional abuse...name your personal worst.
Society continually is challenged to reduce this suffering, yet all to often as individuals we seemingly have minimal recourse to make a difference ourselves.
I beg to differ. Each of us can do our part in reducing the suffering in the world, even if by a very small part.
Ignoring our ability to reduce suffering is perhaps the truest horror.
"Over 56 billion farmed animals are killed every year by humans. More than 3,000 animals die every second in slaughterhouses around the world. These shocking figures do not even include fish and other sea creatures whose deaths are so great they are only measured in tonnes." -- Animal Equality
