My friends son, until the age of seven, grew up in a totally vegetarian family of East Indian origin, being there from seven in the morning till seven at night, he folded fully into their livestyle, yet when he finally he lived fully at home, meat was incorporated into his diet. He was as healthy as good be, yet his dad at age fifty five, has major heart problems, and major surgery, I would be surprised if his son, would not develop the the same problems now.
But it also shares with major health problems is the ethical delimma of the killing fields we have now created, to feed a glutinous society, sacrificing the health of our bodies and souls all at the same time.


A vegetarian point of view!
She ran down the street,
Cradling gently something in her hand,
Something precious, beautiful and sweet,
Something she could understand,
How is it, I asked myself a little child?
Is refuge to a little bird?
That flew in from the wild,
How is it that this little one would know?
Excitedly and in glorious happiness,
So proud and anxious, us her friend would show,
How is it I ask?
What takes place, when time proceeds?
That little bird now big,
She twists it neck, to fix her kids some eats,
What takes place?
Is innocence only in the young?
What changes?
Is our guts demand, that strong?
What happens in the heart and mind?
For stomachs sake,
To others happiness go blind?
Value more that, which is ours,
That which is our flesh and blood,
Just to stretch those short lived hours,
Where does it end?
We sell our soul, to feed our body,
What favour have we parted them?
Have we taught them to be naughty?
Where did it start I ask,
That demon need, to kill,
Some other creatures have no choice,
Yet God gave us free will!

Yes, I agree, we have learnt to 'compartmentalise' when it comes to these issues..I don't understand either. We can only give the message..and hope that others will understand and listen..Love, Diana

Thought provoking. Still ... I'll continue to eat my fish and meat, but have [of late] been eating more vegetables.

God bless you. Kathy

Hello There Jasmin,
I Loved This Write! Although I eat fowl & wild game. I can do withour beef & pork too.
Your Poem has me in anticipation. I have a wreath I made for my front door, a momma robin thought it would be a great place to build her nest back in 2006! What a joy to watch her babies & for the past 2 years even! I hope to see her again this year.

Jas, good write, thought provoking. I have considered at times to become vegitarian, just haven't made the jump. Read a short piece I posted some time ago, titled, "I should have seen it coming."

We sell our soul, to feed our body

But even worse, many now sell their souls just to make a bigger profit today. And to me, that is the saddest thing of all.

I love chicken and a steak now and then and vegetables grace my table also.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 3/17/2008
I am avegetarian too, I only spice my food with a two inches T-bone steack just for add more taste to it.
I hear that plants talk to each other and feel paing, how about that?
But that piece above...right on the point.
