I’ve always been a veggie-eater, a bit more so in the past years of growing food from my yard. It’s fitting that my other blog is one about plants for food given that that’s just about all we eat. You can read my antics over there, at the original DirtNKids Blog.
Diane Rehm interviewed another fabulous guest, Jenny Brown of the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Her compelling story called to me action. Got an hour? Listen to the piece that spurred me into farm animal activist mode. Who knew I even had it in me?
Well maybe, you already saw that one coming.
I have Jenny to thank for changing how I have genuinely felt about PETA and other activists I’ve met throughout the decades of my life. I no longer think of them as wackos, just people with a strong desire to do good – particularly for the billions upon billions of sentient beings who lack a collective voice.
My ears were open that day. My eyes are now too. I’m really looking forward to reading her book I just bought. Until then, time for some blog-building action and much needed sleep afterward.
But I really needed to get that off my chest first.
