Change for who?

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" Mahatma Gandhi

Will Obama show responsibility to children, animals, and the planet?

It is a crime against humanity to decide that children shall stumble and die early deaths so that those in control may eat and work as they wish.

As long as public schools serve children milk and chopped-up animals for lunch, students will disrespect life. School shootings are a testament how well children learn respect, responsibility, and love from those they trust to care for them.

"In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people." Ruth Harrison

"You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity" Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. And isn't it a pity now, that the government will be feeding children chopped up chicken parts from business like Tyson and Pilgrim that have been "bailed out" from financial ruin? It just adds insult to injury -
