Easter Joy & World Peace Expressed through a Vegan Diet

Jesus Christ, son of God - Some believe this is true.
Or Jesus as a historical figure, who spread a philosophy of wisdom in his travels...
And some think it's so that Christ is a fictional character created by talented writers to weave him through an epic tale.
In any case, whatever your beliefs about Christ this much is certain, he's always represented as person of peace and nonviolence.
Said to believe that not only must we put down our swords against one another, to truly create peace on earth, but to hold all life sacred. And thus by embracing a plant based diet we can forgo the brutal and needless slaughter of billions of animals, we can move toward greater wholeness as spiritual beings, while at the same time ending world hunger and preserving the environment.
Spring, and Easter is a great time to re-evaluate our course towards creating a benevolent and just world. And everyday we can remember that peace begins on our plates. Go Vegan
"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love." Pythagoras - 582-507 BC
