letter to donald trump

you have the power to change the world

and the world needs changing.

so we ask of you to hear the voices of those unable to speak, enter ballot boxes. or march on city streets.

our citizens of fur, feather, fins, claws, paws, scales…those who slither, fly, leap, stalk, crawl., just like us, they want to make a living for those they love and for themselves, in peace.

please hear the cries of the enslaved, hidden, tormented, hunted.

as you sit and digest the vast and unexplored implications of this new position you worked so hard to attain, can you see the world as a vast city of many beautiful life forms. can you think of your son barron and the world you wish him to grow up in.

a legacy of compassion and hope can be yours to achieve, if you open your heart and mind to the magic garden our earth was meant to be.

so we ask you, please step up and work with us. be a part of restoring our earth to the glorious gift that it is. time and the tides of sorrow have overtaken far too many.

the time to save the world is now!

thank you.

    Stacey, this is outstanding. I have also been trying to persuade Donald Trump to educate himself about the multitude of benefits of veganism. Have a great Thanksgiving Arthur Poletti Vegan

        Karen, your never ending efforts to help save the lives of all precious animals in harms way have been inspiring. Someday Karen, you and Stacey and i will watch factory farms and slaughterhouses begin to close like never before. Think how wonderful that will be!! All the best to you–Arthur

    Me parece muy conseguida tu opinión sobre este esquema.
    Desde hace un tiempo que estoy interesado en esto y también intento aprender todo lo que puedo sobre esto.
    La aportación que has producido me ha semejado muy buena, no obstante
    creo que se podría analizar un tanto más y de igual modo poder disipar múltiples
    dudas que todavía sostengo. De todas formas, mil
    gracias por tu tributo. Voy a estar espectante a próximas manifestaciones que ejerzas.
    Mil gracias.
    Nos leemos.

    Educating about Veganism is fine. Legislating it is not


    • November 26, 2016 11:32 am

      Cruelty, suffering, and murder should always be legislated against when decency, compassion, and empathy are not inherent.

      Without legislation, man would run rampant and destroy. Laws are enacted to protect man from himself and others from him.

        Karen,i will send the following ancient poem to Donald Trump, who is financially wealthy. I hope it means something to him—Those Without Wealth May One Day Prosper, But Those Without Kindness Are Utterly And Incurably Poor–((Thirulkural 248)
