Animals and all living species contribute to a sustainable life. When we encourage their demise, we are forcing our own destruction much more quickly. This is embedded across the board from spiritual to physical decay, given science's interconnected thread binding each one of us. Beyond these simple scientific facts, ethical decency demands that we honor all life and provide each living being across kingdoms the freedom and right to be, thrive and live on their own terms. If we lack understanding on a given species, this isn't a burden that belongs on their shoulders but, instead, our own. The depths and decay of this enormous problem can't be truly covered in a single email. Martin Luther King advocates, as have Sages in the past, that our soul's destruction is immense when we look the other way from modern day atrocities.
