Greetings of love and gratitude from
Nearly 100,000, sometimes a million,
birds are destroyed or are dying of bird flu every day in the U.S.
according to a recent New York Times article. The Center Fresh
Group, a giant egg producing company is killing 5 ½ million hens in 26
barns in Iowa. Over 40% of Iowa hens are dead or dying. Since
December 33 million turkeys, ducks and chickens in 15 states have been
killed by the flu or by horribly cruel methods, such as gas, foam, or
fire. Some barns have as many as half a million birds in cages stacked
on top of each other. No one can deny that the obvious overcrowding
allows avian flu to spread so quickly. Yet Big Ag is simply working to
clean up and “repopulate.” Unbelievably eggs from hens waiting to be
killed will still be stolen from them and go into food products after
an “extra pasteurization step.” Mexico, Japan, and China
refuse to import U.S. poultry products. Meanwhile, some of our
tax money is being given to these companies to help them kill and
dispose of these suffering birds.
The Times article sympathizes with consumers whose prices will go up,
bank lenders, trucking companies, feed growers, farmers, and chick
breeders (some of whom sell 250,000 day old orphan chicks per
week—after killing an equal number of male chicks). Yet there is not a
word of sympathy for the birds.
A Prayer, a Heart-Longing Plea for the
Liberation of all chickens, ducks, and turkeys.
I used to
eat eggs. I am reminding myself of that as I write this.
Until I learned the truth about eggs, I helped create this monstrous,
barbaric industry. It is hard to face sometimes that we are part of the
species that has caused this violent, soul shattering domination of so
many beings. But we awakened, and that means others can too. With
hearts full of compassion we focus our thoughts on this—that people
everywhere will hear the stories about bird flu and suddenly wake up to
the reality of what we human beings and the agricultural corporations
have done to these precious birds. May the intense and
overwhelming shame of what we have done grow into an immovable,
unalterable, universal declaration to completely and forever end the
demand for even one egg. Let us see the hundreds of poultry
prisons where millions have died, be transformed from places of horror
and torture to places of beauty, peace and sanctuary. May the chick
breeders, farmers, feed growers, and truckers find work that brings
healing, harmony, and joy into their lives. May their lives be
free from all violence; may all people be vegan; and may all chickens,
turkeys, and ducks be free forever. And when this war against
these innocent birds is over, may everyone declare together—“Never
Again!” Love goes with us and brings our vision, our hopes, and our
prayers into manifestation now.
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you,
dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and
shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all
beings will live in peace together.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace
for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from
