Sometimes I presume that "everybody" has....

read or seen or heard or thought something way too often. I apologize. Several years ago I ran across this video/song by Madison Park called Opus One. It was and still is one of the most powerful combinations of song and imagery I've ever encountered. I would caution you that it is heart-wrenching and overwhelming (at least it is for me).



Here is the link to the video over on youtube if it doesn't work well in the blog post.

The imagery and song were very important for me early in my vegan evolution...I would wish that everyone see and hear it, most especially everyone who is not living as an ethical vegan.

I'm glad you posted this one. I've seen others, but this is particularly touching - I'll pass it on.

I do that too - Assume everyone has seen something. And even if that's the case a good message can never be repeated too often.

I am moved by this video and song just as strongly now (perhaps more so) than when I saw it during my first tearful awakenings. It is timelessly heartbreaking. :(

Thank you for commenting David and Bea.

David: It is a powerful one isn't it...thanks for passing it on...maybe it will save some lives.

Bea: I have a mild fear of being repetitive (it gets smaller and smaller the older I get :-)) and as a result I neglect to share or express some things but you are correct...good messages bear repeating. "Timelessly heartbreaking"...exactly so.

I'm sitting here afraid to click Play.

Thank you for commenting Annie.

I feel that same fear each time I get near a depiction of our horridness.

I haven't been up to heart-wrenching since this was posted, but promise to have a look sometime.
