AwN | No one really wants to see this, but if we all just avert our eyes all the time maybe we will never get it. Maybe we will never take the steps to protect what we can't see. I know that life is hard and complex, but it will never sit ok with me that we, as a species, who thinks of itself as the greatest thing to ever happen, are so mindless and selfish in its day to day decisions.
