THE STORY:

HI!
I would love to go to Youth Empowered Action Camp because I feel strongly about animal rights. They have feelings just like us, they can feel love and happiness but also fear and pain. They don't have a voice, but we do and we have to speak up for them. That's how I feel and that is why I am standing up for them and being a vegan. I feel that people are either completely and blissfully ignorant, and know nothing about the torture animals go through OR they do know all that, and just don't care. I think the majority of people just don't know. Going to YEA camp, I wish to learn ways I can educate others about factory farms and slaughterhouses and in turn, change the world! Thank you for your donation, every dollar counts!
If we stand together, we can make a difference! :)

Here's a poem I wrote:

I open my eyes

unwillingly

I would rather sleep and dream

than wake up to this hell

the stink of mine and others waste

that we constantly sit on

fills my nose.

There are others here-

thousands.

All of us subjected to the same torture

the same pain.

I try to stand

but fail

as my head hits the bars above me

encasing me

forever trapping me.

The foggy gray ceiling

glares down at me

screaming at me to stay put

or get kicked

or worse-

killed

just like I've seen the others-

the sick

the weak

the ones who can no longer support their own weight.

I fold my legs under me

and let my mind go blank

one silent tear rolls down my cheek

I cry out

I cry for my baby

taken away before I could

reach out.

Her soft, tender ears

and squirming tail

chopped

off

even as she

squealed

cried

bit

anything she could do

to get out of the unbearable pain

And I watched

unable to move.

This isn't life

I thought

life is a word of happiness

blossoming

and laughter.

Not constant fear and pain

the fear of being taken

some leave every week

more and more-

and never return.

gone with the beast

that breaths toxic fumes

swallowing my kind with one gulp.

goodbye.

but soon it will be me.

If I told you that all I want is to leave

to see the sun for one time

to feel the grass beneath my feet

to smell the air of spring

to breathe

to live.

If I told you that you could help, would you?

If I told you that I was merely a pig, would you even try?
