Letter from Gabby about Our Web Site and Becoming Vegan - 20 May 2007

Oh yeah,

I wanted to say I looked at the sites you gave me. Thank you for them. You're really and truly a compassionate person. I'm not just saying that... I mean it.

Well, I have an important question. Question: How do I make my family become vegans? Every time I try they just tell me to shut up or go away or they scream at me.

So, please reply.

Thanks :) God bless you.

Dear Gabby:

Sometimes family members are the last ones to listen. Just love them for whom God wants them to be, and show your compassion silently before them. If they ask you something, answer them politely and lovingly, and above all donít get angry. Treat them like you want them to treat you and the other animals.

Start talking to others, and hopefully you will find some people who are like-minded so you can work together. See if there are any animal rights groups or vegetarian societies in your area.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
