Facing the Shadow

Last night someone unfriended me on Facebook.
She objected to a post I shared – and quite frankly, she had a point. It was horrific. Dogs being killed and tortured as part of the Chinese Dog Festival which goes on, unceasingly, year after year.
Yes, it’s horrible to even imagine what these poor animals are put through. My mind shies away from even wanting to think about it.
But how does that help them? How does ignoring atrocities that sear our sensibilities make a better world for any of us?
