We had approximately 100 people file through the office, enjoying the company and the vegan food -- generously provided and prepared by several volunteers, particulary Board Member Kathrine Paterson. Many said it was our best party yet
And we seem to be venting quite a bit lately. This time of year tends to be somber, reminding us that even though there are numerous animals who we've saved, there are countless more that won't be so lucky. Like I've said before, I hope that compassion at this time of year extends to people's dinner tables as they sit down to feast. I'm so thankful for my food as I prepare myself to eat, but I can't help cringing as my family digs into turkey. What a brief, difficult and cruel life those birds must endure. I'll have to make sure I bite my tongue before my convictions get the better of me! All I can do is hope that people are thankful and respectful of the lives that were involuntarily sacrificed for them.
(On that cheery note!) Wishing you all a safe and merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa or whatever else you celebrate. And thank you again for all your support for our non-human friends = ^..^ =
