About Me I am a vegan. I do not eat animal flesh! I am against animal testing and/or animal cruelty of any kind. I believe animals are sentient beings who can feel pain, happiness, etc. As such, they should be treated with tender loving care!

Activist Aspirations Enthusiastic
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Religions Spiritual but not religious  
Eating Habits tea and coffee, Fresca -- yeah I know, Drink Loads Of Water, organic, STRICT VEGETARIAN  
Wild Fact About Me I have a really goofy sense of humor!
My Philosophy I believe that humanity does not just extend to humans but humanity is actually the "manner" in which a "human" treats another living creature -- as all living creatures have a right to inhabit this earth, together, without fear, without pain -- a little kindness and/or humanity goes a long way!
What Gives Me Hope Knowing that other people feel like I do about certain topics; I am not alone in the fight! There are so many good people out there to counter the bad ones. Most people genuinely care for others; it is the select few out there that ruin it for all the animals, all the children, the voiceless, for everyone.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Help the children of the world and the animals as these are the truly voiceless ones. They need our voice, our love, our understanding, but, most of all, our help.
What/who changed my life and why EARTHLINGS is the movie that, without a doubt, changed me forever. The book that changed me, and I haven't looked back since, is, as strange as it may sound, SKINNY BITCH. It talks about the slaughterhouses in depth in the book. I started to do research on my own and have been vegetarian progressing to a vegan ever since then. Of course, as far as people go, my mom is my hero. My dad influenced me a lot. I LOVE MY FAMILY MORE THAN ANYTHING!

    Hi Karen! Hope you & yours are doing great.
    Write sometime, if you feel like it. I have never
    heard of Earthling or Skinny Bitch, will have
    to read up on them...this photo reminded me
    of the book title!  LOL!     Bless you,  Michael

    Good Morning, Karen(barely!). Hope we are still friends
    after that last missive I sent off to you! I'm sorry if I acted
     too young.         Michael

      Hi Karen, 
      Sleep tight(I always wondered
     about that-does it mean you are
    supposed to get drunk before
    going to bed or what, exactly?)
     LOL!), sweet dreams and don't
    let the bedbugs bite!
