Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Brett - 6 May 2005
That was great to hear back from you, what a treat. Your explanation makes perfect sense. I find the statistics fascinating and appreciate your dedication to finding the way to connect with a large quantity of the population.
I can feel sometimes getting discouraged at the enormity of the the industry and how slow change is to come. But the best way to cut out the problem is by doing exactly as you are, getting the explanations and messages out to as may as possible.
Truly I believe that eventually a large enough percentage of the population will begin to turn from the idea of meat and it will be seen as the popular choice. Eventually I hope it gets into the school systems and especially into the senate the importance of true animal rights and the acknowledgment of animals as full beings. By then all this constant butchery of lives will seem ludicrous, horrifying, and we as humans will not only benefit morally but I'm sure we would not encounter nearly as many health issues. Ah, this is all very idea but I don't believe completely impractical. Honestly I think someday things will change.
Keep up the good work.

Thank you for your reply and for your understanding.
Since you like statistics, at the present time we are averaging over 400,000 hits a day to our web site, and we're continually growing, and the young people who visit our site are some of the most active in passing along the message. It is also interesting that from the people that took our survey, that only about 10% of our visitors are vegan and another 10% eat the standard American meat based diet. The other 80% are at various stages in between, which means we're getting our message out to many people who may not have heard it before.
The more information we add to our internet library, the more attention we attract and the greater the outreach. You seem to like to write, and are interested in reaching out to the young people of this world. If you would like to write some articles, etc., we'd be happy to publish them.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
