Last weekend's Walk for Farm Animals
- I'll be writing a post today and putting up some pics from the Walk
on the photo page today, as well as in the group's album. Billye got
some great photos, too, and I am sure she will add some of the best
of them to that collection. It went great! We had a great turnout
and many positive responses from the public. I only noticed two
hecklers, but there were quite a few vehicles with honked with a
thumbs-up to us as they went by. There were quite a few members of
the public that took literature as well. What a wonderful thing to
experience! We raised $1500 for Farm Sanctuary at the event, and I
met some truly wonderful and interesting people from all different
walks of life. Really a diverse and wonderful group of people, from
cute little kids to gray-haired grandmothers. It's always such a
motivating and energizing experience to get together with people like
that. I'll cut this short, though, as I still have a lot of mail to
catch up with (and I'll bwe writing this up on the blog, anyway), and
I'll be posting the articles of interest that have come in while I
was gone in a minute. I would love to hear from any other members
that might have participated in some event for World Farmed Animals
Day last weekend. Have a good one, everybody!
"At the moment our human world is based on the suffering and
destruction of millions of non-humans.
To perceive this and to do something to change it in personal and
public ways is to undergo a change of perception akin to a religious
conversion. Nothing can ever be seen in quite the same way again
because once you have admitted the terror and pain of other species
you will, unless you resist conversion, be always aware of the
endless permutations of suffering that support our society."
--Arthur Conan Doyle
