You Must Be The Change

How true that a change MUST start with us.
This is a series on being Vegan that I am doing. I live next to a pasture of beef cattle, I have been a Vegan for most of my life. I can not look into the eyes of a creature that feels pain and even think about food. All the cattle were photographed in Montrose, Colorado and each one has a different verse or quote.
The biblical case for vegetarianism does not rest on the view that killing may never be allowable in the eyes of God, rather on the view that killing is always a grave matter. When we have to kill to live we may do so, but when we do not, we should live otherwise.
I drive by these Cows in this Feedlot almost daily, it breaks my heart. They paw for you, want their heads scratched, I sit and watch them, they show love to one another. They almost smile when you speak to them, they are curious. Filthy, horrid conditions. Being Vegan is a joy, not a sacrifice. I will not consume the soul of another.
Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products, such as refined white sugar and some wines. Most vegans also avoid the use of all products tested on animals, as well as animal-derived non-food products, such as leather, fur and wool.
Vegan refers to either a person who follows this way of eating, or to the diet itself.
Fundamental Christian values include preserving one's own health, feeding the hungry, preventing animal abuse, and protecting the environment. Vegetarianism effectively promotes these values.
STEPHEN R. KAUFMAN, Good News for All Creation
I do feel that spiritual progress does demand, at some stage, that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.
MAHATMA GANDHI, quoted in Food As Medicine
It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favour of vegetarianism, while the wolf remains of a different opinion.
WILLIAM RALPH INGE, "Patriotism," Outspoken Essays
When a man of normal habits is ill, everyone hastens to assure him that he is going to recover. When a vegetarian is ill (which fortunately very seldom happens), everyone assures him that he is going to die, and that they told him so, and that it serves him right. They implore him to take at least a little gravy, so as to give himself a chance of lasting out the night.
GEORGE BERNARD SHAW, Saturday Review, May 21, 1898
A mind of the calibre of mine cannot derive its nutriment from cows.
