…which means it’s your day to make a positive change in the world, your health, and the life of animals. Just think, one day a week you have the power to make all this happen :).
Sometimes when people ask me why I am vegetarian, and I actually begin to tell them it’s for philosophical reasons, they tell me, “No, don’t tell me more, I don’t want you to spoil my breakfast/lunch/dinner.” I understand that sentiment. The realities of factory farming are so horrible no one wants to think or know about them. Why? Because (I believe) if people really knew what happened to factory farmed animals they would stop eating meat immediately; they would be forced to act because no one truly believes cruelty is okay.
I am being provocative today because I do want people to think and act and take a stand against animal cruelty, as well as poisoned meat (see Dr. Oz’s latest video about “What’s in Our Nation’s Chicken”), and the environmental problems factory farming is causing us.
For those of you already choosing to go meatless (no meat for three meals) on Mondays, thank you. For those of you who are still working on it, keep trying, you will get there. And for those who are ready to take the next step to a compassionate, cruelty free life, don’t wait. Do it now. The world will thank you, your body will thank you, your family will thank you, and the animals will thank you. I will thank you too, but you probably already know that :).
For those interested in how the word “organic”, “cage-free”, “free-range”, etc., have been co-opted and corrupted by the agri-business industry, here is a short video explaining what it all means.Vodpod videos no longer available.
Make a difference today! Go Meatless!
