A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Coretta Scott King – 30 January 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

Coretta Scott King, a vegan for the last 15 years of her life, was introduced to the lifestyle by her and Martin Luther King’s son Dexter, also a vegan, who considers it the “logical extension” of his father’s philosophy of nonviolence.

In Stephanie Ernst’s article “Celebrating Coretta, Who Celebrated Nonviolence – and Stopped Eating Animals,” she is quoted as saying: “I prefer to eat mostly raw or 'living' foods. The benefits for me are increased energy, a slowing of the aging process, and I have none of the diseases like hypertension, heart disease and diabetes that many people my age seem to get."

More people need to wake up to the many benefits of compassionate living.
