Subject: March for Peace
To whom it may concern,
I saw the poster for the walk by my ATM this morning. It featured a picture of a dove, a universal symbol of peace. It also announced there is a BBQ to be held afterwards. In keeping with the spirit of the event, I hope that you are serving up vegan food. Our addiction to meat is responsible not only for animal suffering, but human health problems, environmental degradation and produces more green house gases than all forms of transport combined.
In an interview, Dr. Jane Goodall said, "I saw meat on the plate. I looked down and said this symbolizes fear, pain and death and I don't want that in my body." Remember, you are what you eat and peace begins in the kitchen.
We will never achieve true peace as long as we continue to heap horrible violence on other species and the planet on which they are doing their best to survive against incredible odds. Note that I didn't say the planet we "share" with them because nothing could be further from the truth. We run roughshod over them, using our so-called "superior intelligence" to justify it every step of the way. When the moment of truth comes, the revenge that Mother Earth brings to bear will truly be the great equalizer.
