  • Watauga Public Library

Greetings!  Two weeks from now we hope you will join us for the “Peace on Earth” December potluck. Arrive between 6 and 6:30pm at the Watauga Public Library on Monday, December 15th.  Please bring a vegan dish (no meat, fish, egg, dairy, or honey) that serves at least 8 people as well as your own place setting.  Copies of your recipe to share with others are also greatly appreciated.  In choosing to live as vegans we are dedicated to nonviolence and to contributing as little as possible to the suffering of others.  This month let us recognize that by extending our compassion to all sentient beings we not only allow others freedom from harm but find greater peace within ourselves as well.

 

As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.
—Isaac Bashevis Singer, writer and Nobel laureate (1902–1991)

  1. “Aren’t humans amazing? They kill wildlife – birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal – health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then plead for ‘Peace on Earth.'” C. David Coates

    The good news is that anyone can break this cycle of violence. I did and you can too. Each of us has the power to choose compassion. Peace really does begin in the kitchen.
