Be the change you want to see in the world

By Arthur Poletti

Dear President Elect Barack Obama:

Being the President will not be easy. Sometimes, with God's guidance you may need to go against the status quo and take a stand against overwhelming odds. No matter what the majority of the people in the world may think or say.

I am sure you will agree that God is the supreme symbol of compassion, kindness, life, and love for all creatures with a soul which clearly proves why God wants all animal factory farms and slaughterhouses to close!

President Elect Obama, your action of becoming the first vegetarian or vegan President in the history of the United States would send a glorious message throughout the world like a "lightning bolt of compassion from heaven."

You and maybe even former Vice President of The United States Al Gore and Oprah Winfrey could make a simultaneous announcement that none of you will ever eat the flesh of Gods creatures again.

Imagine the immediate and long range positive results these incredible announcements would create throughout the world for the benefit of all animals, all humans, the earth, and the earth's atmosphere.

Thank you for your important consideration and most urgently needed action. Please seriously consider the wisdom of the following famous quotation.

“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” Albert Einstein

  1. The universal wish for world peace would begin here... at what was on our plates...
    A revolution of compassionate thinking... Gosh - if it were only so...

  2. Kudos to Arthur for this great initiative. It is very important that it succeed because:

    * it is becoming increasingly apparent that the world is approaching an unprecedented catastrophe from global warming;

    * A 2006 UN report indicated that animal-based agriculture emits more greenhouse gases (in CO2 equivalents) than all the cars and other means of transportation worldwide (18% vs. 13.5%) an the number of farmed animals is projected to double in 50 years.

  3. "All ancient philosophy was oriented toward the
    simplicity of life and taught a certain kind of modesty in one's need. In light of this, the few philosophic vegetarians have done more for mankind than all new philosophers, and as long as philosophers and world leaders do not have the courage to seek out a totally changed way of life and to demonstrate it by their example, they are worth nothing." Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
