Technology is a good thing? Many people think it is, but is it really? Technology has brought us many great things like television, automobiles, and iPhones. Everyone agrees that these are good things. They help us connect with the world around us, know what is going on, and even let us communicate with people we aren't with. How would we be if we still didn't have the radio or electricity? How could that effect our daily lives? I think technology is a good thing and has helped shape our society. 
 
Although I think technology is good there is also a darker side to it. Technology has created planes but it has also created the atom bomb and chemical warfare. With every new good thing we created a new bad thing is also created. Everyday scientists create new ways to kill people, faster and better ways. Without technology although we would be oblivious to the world around us, we would also be safe from nuclear warfare and chemically created diseases.
 
 
Today in class we were asked to write a blog about something that interests us. For me that was easy, animals. They are all over and have unconditional love for their owner, but what happens when their owners try to hurt them? How would it feel to be in their shoes and feel lonely and abandoned, or worse hurt and abused? I think it so completely sick that some people feel pleasure at the expense of some innocent animal. They are alive too, and they have feelings and emotions. Do you think its wrong that people kill each other? Isn't it the same principal with animals? I have no illusions that this will ever happen, but I would like to think that people should get the same punishment for slaughtering a dog than for killing a person. Why should it be any different just because they can't talk and we can, people say "oh their just animals" but aren't we. 
    
I have so many animals myself, and I know I would go ballistic if someone hurt any of them. I don't know if any of you readers out there have pets, and I don't know if you feel the same way I do, but even if you don't I hope you listen to my opinion and try to volunteer at an animal shelter or humane society. If you couldn't do that at least when you are looking for a new cat or dog please stop by a shelter. Everyone deserves a second chance, why shouldn't they. Now please watch this video with special thanks to Avril2rocks555 for posting this video. Also please comment your own thoughts and opinions on animal abuse.
