YES!!!!!! x 3
By Susan Roghair, [email protected]

I came home after a long hard day at work knowing that there was going to be an even longer and harder night at this keyboard, to find my neighbor on her patio. She greeted me with the words:

"My children and I are going vegetarian!"

What????????!!! Is this the same woman that I have heard so many times say......."I love chicken wings"......"I couldn't give up meat"........"I could eat a big fat juicy steak".....etc. I don't think so! I had to take a second look to see if it was really her.

I have approached her several times over the past few years about the benefits of a vegetarian diet, and I really thought it was going in one ear and out the other. I asked her what prompted this decision and she told me that she had heard about the horrors of what is fed and injected into dairy cows and food today.

She went on to name various products such as Rice Dream, Veggie Patties, etc. that she just went out and bought. I wanted to hug her!

I guess the moral of this story is...........if at first you don't succeed, try and try again.

Sometimes we feel like we are fighting a losing battle spreading the word to folks that don't appear to be listening. But as I have heard so many times, it can take several attempts to educate on such issues so don't give up! The animals need you!
