I have had the poem on my mind all day. Its haunting an doesnt leave from your thoughts. as it has been in my mind iv been thinking. An please forgive me if im wrong. Im not really talking about all veg people but there are thoughs who get in a rut eating there veg diets they let slip the reasons for it. I know at times i could be called guilty. If iv gone a day with no tv an not shopping. I honestly dont think of the animal im saving with my diet choices. An im honestly feeling i need to remind my self daily im eating like natures royalty an the animal is giving another day because im not eating that beutiful animal.

Very sad poem. I think the most cruel thing I've heard about the treatment of animals was maybe on the film "Food", where they talked of animals that were bred for food and how some lived their whole lives cramped together with no room to move and even sometimes lived in total darkness...and not just for a while, but for their whole lives! Now THAT'S cruel...no matter how you slice it (no pun intended). emoticon

Thanks for the link to that poem Michelle. Very sad. Makes you think. But every day our vegan numbers increase and that's a good sign. I believe that the stats say that every vegan saves the lives of 60 animals a year.
