Letter from Gabby about Family Problems with Going Vegan and Stopping Animal Cruelty - 20 May 2007

I'm glad you replied. I'm trying to get my family to become a vegan or vegetarian... but every time I tried to my mom just said, "Gabby, people have choices." It makes me SO mad when she says that!! I mean yeah people do have choices... but if it causes someone else to suffer, should we really have a choice? I try to tell my sister sick things so she'll stop eating meat, but she just gets mad and screams at me... I tell her that she's just supporting it. Then she yells at me," No I'm not! I care about animals!"

Please! I mean come on! If she cared do you think she would go around eating them and LETTING them suffer? Thanks for the sites. You know you think nobody would hurt a dog or a whale or other animals... it's weird how anyone could be so cruel... people get so worked up about money! I mean it's just paper!!!! It's not worth what the animals have to go through! Personally, I think humans are animals! I mean I know a dog that was abused that is nicer than someone that has EVERYTHING! I hope you reply! Bye for now!

P.S. I'm writing this in my diary. I'm hoping someone in a hundred years reads and tries to do something about animal cruelty too. God bless you! Bye!

Dear Gabby:

Thank you for writing back. We hear this kind of story all the time.

We don't think it will take a hundred years for someone to read your diary. We're going to publish your letter and comments in our letter and discussion sections. (we'll just use your first name)

The more people who speak out as you are doing, the sooner the cruelty will end.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
