What I Want to Do:


 
Do you *really* love animals?
ATTENTION FRIENDS AND OTHER VISITORS: IF YOU CARE ABOUT ANIMALS, OR EVEN IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ANIMALS, BUT YOU CARE ABOUT JUSTICE, THEN I CANNOT RECOMMEND STRONGLY ENOUGH THAT YOU READ THIS SHORT BOOK: http://www.eatlikeyoucarebook.com  IT IS AN EASY READ AND POSITIVELY EYE OPENING. I CAN ALMOST GUARANTEE IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE, BUT IT WILL CERTAINLY MAKE YOU RE-THINK HOW YOU VIEW ANIMALS.

All animal use is immoral because it represents a speciesist mindset.  It causes unimaginable misery, produces Earth's worst pollution, destroys natural habitat, and is bad for our health.  If we claim to "love" animals and yet eat, wear or use them or their secretions, we are morally conflicted and need to ask ourselves why we are not living our *values*
.  Even the purchase and breeding of "companion animals" is problematic in that it perpetuates exploitation.  We still have an obligation, however, to adopt and take care of those homeless millions in shelters but without encouraging more.

BOTTOM LINE: If we hope to end animal suffering, we must all embrace the principles of Veganism—reject violence, exploitation and injustice in our lives including in what we eat, wear and use—and then most importantly, educate others Abolitionist Veganism according to the six principles of Professor Francione's Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights (see his website link next).  This is the only action we need take to truly dry up demand for all animal use.

For a more complete understanding please follow the blog essays and podcast commentaries of Professor Gary L. Francione at http://www.abolitionistapproach.com/

Please see here: for an amazing Vegan resource. You'll find everything you need including the why's and how's.

    ~I Never Knew~~
    I never knew my life would be so
    complete in the middle of such chaos.
    I never knew I could love like that.
    I never knew I could hurt like that.
    I never knew I could worry like that.
    I never knew I could be that proud.

    People always warned me
    that my life would change so
    much with the entrance of my children.
    What they forgot to tell me it would change
    more with their departure
    toward their own lives.
    ~~Author Unknown~~

    PLANT TREES FOR LIFE.......

    I miss & love you my precious Danny........
