If you’ve known me for a while, you know all about the heroic Katie Meyler, founder of More Than Me, an organization providing education and resources to young girls in the slums of Liberia. Katie is currently in West Point, documenting the devastating effects of the Ebola virus and volunteering to help victims & the community. She’s not allowed to physically touch anyone, but that doesn’t stop her from spreading smiles :). Her unwavering bravery is a constant inspiration to me.

PLEASE check out (and share!) her stories & images at http://instagram.com/katiemeyler, and if you’re inspired to help combat this horrific virus, consider donating to Doctors Without Borders.

Question for people who don’t identify as “vegan”: Where do you draw the line on animal cruelty/suffering? 

(I’m genuinely curious; here’s hoping anyone reading this refrains from attacks & insults)

What makes it acceptable or unacceptable?

I&#8217;m so happy that James Cameron and Suzy Amis have taken on this issue with such dedication and passion. Eating dead animals is not sustainable. If we want to keep this planet alive, we have some changes to make, starting with the dietary choices we make three times a day.

Eyes. Taking in what is likely their first view of the outside world. En route to slaughter. RIP beautiful babies.

PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTING A SENIOR DOG!
"One by one, they pass by my space, too old, too worn, too broken, no way. Way past his time, he can&#8217;t run and play. They shake their heads slowly and go on their way. A little old man, arthritic and sore, It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed, A place that was warm, and where I was fed. Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail. Who wants a dog so old and frail? My family decided I didn&#8217;t belong, I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.
Whatever excuse they made in their head, can&#8217;t justify how they left me for dead.
 Now I sit in this place, where day after day, the younger dogs get adopted away. When I had almost come to the end of my rope, you saw my face and I finally had hope. You saw through the gray, and the legs bent with age, and felt I still had life beyond this place. You took me home, gave me food and a bed, and shared your own pillow with my poor tired head. We snuggle and play, you talk to me low, you love me so dearly, and you want me to know.
I may have lived most of my life with another, but you outshine them with a love so much stronger. And I promise to return all the love I can give, to you, my dear person, as long as I live. I may be with you for a week, or for years, we will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave, I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve. And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new, my thoughts and my heart will still be with you. And I will brag to all who will hear, of the person who made my last days so dear.&#8221;

"Because male chicks cannot lay eggs and do not become the chickens we eat, they serve no purpose in modern agriculture. They are therefore killed by a process called maceration… Approximately 21 — 22 million male chicks are macerated each month in the United States, according to the latest United States Department of Agriculture data.”
