    your words capture so well the sentiment i want to express when i hear from friends and family, “oh, i just can’t watch ‘those things'”. so i quoted you, with a link to your site, and posted them together with a few words of my own as a note on facebook. my focus in the crusade for animal liberation is also compassion, and i am in the midst of a personal struggle to discern how best to use my gifts and abilities to spread this message. thank you for offering hope and inspiration!

  2. I SOOOOO wish I could send this podcast to my sisters. They have read parts of my book and appreciate my reformatory mission, but they’ve made it clear that they do not want to know more, that they are comfortable continuing to avoid truth.

    It must be easy to sidestep confronting oneself when one is surrounded by a society that lives lies. I wouldn’t know. It would’ve been agony for me to have stayed in the lie, once I discovered it. To many people, lies can be made to appear as truth, as evil can be massaged to look good.

    I look forward to sharing your message with many more Americans, both vegan and non. Your approach to the subject is unique, valuable, and hopefully change-making. Your tone conveys utter seriousness, yet you don’t sound like you’re personally judging or condemning anyone. I’ll be interested to share this with a non-vegan friend or two and ask them for their honest response. Will let you know….
