### My American friends, please look in the mirror. I stand in amazement and gratitude at those who have been fighting so long for animal rights. I certainly was not. I review and often share their work as I see it come by on my Facebook feed and I am fed by their compassion. But yesterday I also begin feeling a rage. I felt a rage at a picture of someone in a foreign land posing with a shark they had dragged out of the water for a selfie apparently causing the death of the shark. A horrible Act. But I could not convince myself that those appalled at this picture don't include a large percentage that just finished a steak dinner, a bacon and egg breakfast, and a burger for lunch. Included a large percentage that have never put themselves In Harm's Way to stop The Butchery of roughly 4 Palestinians per week by American dollars, bombs, and political support. Americans, if we want to be appalled we don't need to look at someone from a foreign land on a foreign Beach. We Slaughter about 15 million of our fellow creatures for our entertainment and enjoyment, per day. Just look in the mirror.
