If I was to re live my life over over again there is just one thing I would change. I would stop eating meat and dairy earlier. I want to say I am sorry to all the cows, chickens, lambs and fish , that I have eaten . I am ready to take the next leap of my life .
Since I went vegan I have been looking into factory farming and it beyond me. Slaughterhouses are horrific.
Here is a short video , which only scratches the surface of the reality of factory farming.
I do not like watching this video, but by doing so I can educate myself and make changes. It is very easy to ignore those facts and pretend that all is OK and close our eyes on the unnecessary suffering those animals are going through.
I have breastfed my 4 boys.I have also expressed milk using a pump and it is something , that I would do only for my kids. I do not want even want to begin to imagine what those cows are going through so kids can have strawberry yoghurt. The milk produced from another animal does not belong to humans.
Humans have been eating meat for thousands of years .In the last 50 or so years animal farming has become one of the biggest crimes. Rape, force feeding , caged life,slaughter …..In this day and age when there is an abundance of vegetables, fruits and all sorts of beans and pulses eating meat is unnecessary in most parts of the world.
I respect everyone’s choice and at the same time there is a lot of propaganda involved in eating meat and dairy .I do not know any un-cruel way to kill an animal.
I would like to invite you to have and open mind and an open heart and do your research.
Sending blessings and love
