“The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world,” said Paul Farmer, a physician and philanthropist who travels worldwide to combat health inequality. Paul recognizes the inequality of human treatment, and we must also view animals in the same way. At times, the truth is shrouded and skewed from not seeing that animals feel compassion, empathy, and pain just as we do. Yet, we discriminate against them because they are not pets. We must find fault within our own habits and how our choices dictate the future of the human race and the future of the species around us. However, this ignorance must end with us spreading awareness of the existence of animal cruelty amongst all species, and how not all cases are brought to the attention of the public.
