All Beings.

These two photographs popped up on my Facebook feed this morning. They completely stopped me in my tracks, for totally different reasons.

As you go through your Memorial Day Weekend, please remember the  animals. Please honor them with compassionate vegan choices, through and through. Please share this post with loved ones, so they can see that chicken's wings belong around their children, not on our dinner plates, and an animal more intelligent than a three year-old child should not have to experience this much confinement and mind-numbing suffering. And that we, yes, each of us, can be the change we wish to see in the world. Click here to learn how. 

I love and treasure you all.

"All beings tremble before violence. 
All love life.
All fear death.
See yourself in others.
Then whom can you hurt?
What harm can you do?" 
- Buddha

Thank you for posting all that you do. I am a new vegan......not quite a year yet...and every once in a while old habits start knocking at my door trying to get in. I am 52 years old and am trying to teach this "old dog some new tricks". I literally cooked my way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking long before there was a movie, book or blog so I have a history filled with non-vegan cooking. I am using what I know to teach myself how to cook amazing animal friendly food and am having a blast doing it. Occasionally, a situation arises that tries to lure me back to old habits, ie. going to Paris next week. When that happens, I turn to you, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau and Farm Sanctuary to bring me back to reality. This post could not have come at a better time for me.......Thank You!!!!

Edward - thank you so much for these words. They carry me on. :-) Keep going!! And in terms of finding a new cookbook to go through, look up "The Betty Crocker Project." It's a couple who has gone through the entire Betty Crocker cookbook and veganized it after they saw Julie and Julia. All the best to you! If you need added support, my hubby is a FABULOUS vegan health coach - xoxo
