Letter from Jeannette Marsden about Eating Animals - 21 Apr 2005

I believe that animals have just the same amount of right to be on this earth as we do.... and I think that people that can kill animals and live with themselves are barbarians and need to go see a shrink for help because animals never hurt them.  They are the ones hurting the animals. And I think that whoever can be able to sit down at a table with animal meat and eat it should be ashamed of themselves. 

Even though I've just became a vegan, I still have the feelings of one and I love animals and I want to help them as much as I can, and if there are any campaigns and protests that I can participate in please e-mail me.  I would love to be part of this because I want animals to be able to reminisce in the fields like children can play on a playground and be able too know that their parents will always be there.

I think that animals have feelings and thoughts and they can feel lose just as much as we can, and they shouldn't have to go threw it just to please someone's taste buds. I may be only 13 but I know right from wrong and eating animal is wrong.

Reply from Frank and Mary Hoffman

Dear Jeannette:

Thank you for writing and for your desire to help end the suffering of animals.

We work with many organization who always have some campaigns going on. Our approach is primarily to inform the public about all aspects of animal exploitation and our need to be loving and compassionate peacemakers for the whole of creation (humans, animals and the environment).

Start by telling you family and friends, and ask them to join you in your efforts to end animal suffering. When you see or hear something in the news about animal cruelty and suffering, write short letters to the editor or station. But in everything you do, be peaceful and polite while explaining your position.

The future of our world rests in the hearts and souls of young people like you.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
