I am surrounded by family who loves and cares for me.
But there is something we have failed to see.
The beast that is cooking in the other room
had a family of his own that he left too soon.
What is thankfulness when we have to cause death to a being
just to sit around a table with these people we love seeing?
a life is a life no matter what shape his feathers are
or whether he walks with two legs or four near and far.
Save a turkey this year and eat a not so traditional dinner with your family and friends
besides your body will thank you when its getting more nourishment than fats and skins.
After all this creature has family and friends during this holiday too.
Just imagine if this turkey was you.
because other people are thankful for what is going in their life
your life must be taken away from your family, maybe even your wife.
we are all connected on this earth we live in
so for one day lets not spill the blood of another animal friend.
and let peace reign through out the land
as we eat more vegetables and join hands.
