I went to the movies twice this weekend to watch two very interesting and good films, both directors were there to speak to the audience. If you can, watch these films!
It's kind of emotional to sink down in that movie theatre seat.....I get all kinds of feelings inside when going to the movies.
First I saw The Last Animals directed by Kate Brooks. She has that dream job, she is a photojournalist and travels all over the world. I admire people like her.
I feel they make a real difference. A few minutes into this film I started tearing up. Basically humans are destroying this planet and killing the animals, greed is behind a lot of the destruction. It's difficult to watch that. But it is reality.
The next day I saw Dog's Best Friend directed by Eryn Wilson. It showed a man in Australia and his story about the dogs he loves and cares for.
I can say this....I don't regret cutting out meat from my diet. I did it for the animals. I don't want to eat what I love, I know they have emotions.
Far from perfect I am, I still eat dairy and I should start cutting down on that too. Animals have done nothing to deserve the horrible treatment they are getting from us humans.
I am also happy that I have managed to care for and love a beautiful and amazing dog - my Chhaya.
I can't put into words how much she means to me.
