Hey
 I have yet to make it to a meeting but am planning to next month. I've been a vegetarian since November and it's the best thing I've ever done. Looking forward to meeting all of you. By the way that quote from Einstein is great. Here's a few I came across that were eye opening to say the least.

"If one gives a young child an apple and a live chicken, the child would instinctively play with the chicken and eat the apple, whereas if a cat were presented with the same choices, its natural impulse would be the opposite"
Douglas Dunn

"I point out that a live cow makes a lion salivate, whereas a human just wants to say 'moo' and see if the cow responds"

I am on board with all of that. I've suggested it before and have brought up 
some things to discuss before.. I'd love to continue and expand on that and make 
the meetup a valuable opportunity for activism too. It look sliek the next 
meetup will be at the sanctuary so that's great. People are also trying to have 
me set up something not on a sunday so I'm happy to help people set something up 
anytime between now and the first sunday.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the 
world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."   
-- Margaret Mead

 
"If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from 
injury to animals."
-- Albert Einstein
