I'm gonna break it break it down for you people right now
got a message goin' out to the people who eat cow
you're wasting all the resources and food for the poor
but hey it dont affect you, you dont have to see the gore
we could be growing twenty thousand pounds of potatoes
or ten thousand pounds of those red red tomatoes
instead the land is used for 165 pounds of beef
thats a waste of land, let alone a waste of life
when you feed a cow 8 pounds of grain to digest
it yields one pound of meat or less
the #1 cause of death in this fuckin' nation
is heart disease linked to beef ingestion
so not only are you perpetuating world hunger
but youre also ensuring that you die a little younger
so go ahead and live your life with a blindfold on your eyes
but when you have a heart attack it wont be a surprise
well how would you feel, if i came to your house
and i ate your dog, and i killed your mouse?
well how would you feel if i went in your room
smashed your hamster with a hammer buddy?
and swept it up with a broom?
you'd be fucking devastated, yeah youd cry and cry
whyd he have to do it, whyd fluffy have to die?
well you know how i feel, when you murder my friends
lock them up in cages, pin them up in pens
now what i say is true and dont you ever forget it
and if you ever do then you wont live to regret it
but im not gonna shut up till i get my point across
if you are eating dairy then its more than just your loss
theres a reason why i stick to my Rice Dream and my Silk
cause there's a teaspoon of blood in every gallon of cows milk
but thats not all youre getting when you drink bodily fluid
theres chemicals and hormones and bacteria in it
they hook a big machine up to the poor girls udder
milk her dry, put a bullet in her head, and then throw her in the gutter
if a cow were a human youd call then a murderer or a sinner
but that doesnt seem to matter cause BEEF ITS WHATS FOR DINNER
dairy consumers support the veal industry
impregnate a cow and what happens to the baby?
they live their short horrid lives in dark solitude
until their head is chopped off and their served as someones food
well how would you feel, if i milked your mom?
hooked a hose up to your sister and didnt feel it was wrong?
well how would you feel, if i stole your kids
locked em up in my basement, and fed the their own friends?
you'd be fucking devastated, yeah youd cry and cry, whyd he have to do it?
what a heartless guy!
well you know how i feel
when you lock up my friends
rape them their entire dark life
till the day that it ends...

Before & After picture!
An amazing transformation when a SENTIENT being is treated like an object (before picture), and when she is treated like someONE.
They demonstrate the transformation that occurs when compassion replaces callousness.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt
When people are in emotional pain, they tend to speak and act in ways that sound angry and aggressive. And if you, too, are in emotional pain, you are likely to speak to the other person in ways that he will perceive as angry and aggressive. Each person adds to the emotional pain of the other, and the distress of everyone involved keeps increasing.
When you are calm, it's easier to see the emotional pain of others. That is when you can build up your attribute of compassion. The goal is to have so much compassion that even when you personally are experiencing emotional pain, you are able to be sensitive to the emotional pain of the person with whom you are interacting.
Coming from a place of compassion you will be able to address the thoughts and feelings of the other person in a way that alleviates his distress. Then he is more likely to speak and act more sensibly and reasonably towards you.
(from Rabbi Zelig Pliskin's book: Harmony with Others, p.130, artscroll.com)
A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor. On
seeing him, the dad yelled:
“Why did U take all this time to come? Don’t U know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t U have any sense of responsibility?”
Th…e doctor smiled & said:
“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would U calm down? If your own son dies now what will U do??” said the father angrily
The doctor smiled again & replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came & to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go & intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”
“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy,
“Thank goodness!, your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If U have any question, ask the nurse!!”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”
Moral-Never judge anyone….. because U never know how their life is & what they’re going through”

A group of people lost a large amount of money. There was one person in the group who was still happy, even though the others were miserable over their loss. The others asked him how he could be so happy while they were so sad.
He replied, "I'll give you an analogy. A person once came into a room where a few people were sleeping. The sleepers were dreaming nightmares and cried in their sleep. The person who was awake did not join them in their crying for he realized it was merely a dream. Similarly, I realize this world is like a dream. People upset over worldly matters are as in the midst of a nightmare. I am awake, and cognizant of how illusory worldly suffering really is."
