Loving Hut

What is appealing to you about a Veg-friendly lifestyle?

Improved health: dropped 45 pounds, blood pressure fine, etc.; environmental pollution; Ahimsa is a way of life; animal slavery and cruelty is horrendous; those I most admire have been vegetarians or vegans -- Gandhi, etc; all living beings despise pain, seek to live, even insects; try to kill a fly and it avoids the flyswatter relentlessly [I have never done it but have witnessed others]; compassion for all life is the true way of living and I have been practicing it for years; I belong to many national and international nonprofits, having formed several over the years, and founded one; being able to be a source of information for those that are seeking and learning a better way to live has been rewarding and will continue to be so; having read many, many books, watched movies, etc., been on holistic health cruises, met many interesting people, recently read Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's, MD, book: Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease has been useful for my family and to be shared/

Where would you like to see events?

Lived in Phoenix 37 years, a lawyer, married for 37 years, 3 daughters and 5 grandchildren, a vegan for several years, consider myself Interfaith since "live the golden rule" is found in almost all faith traditions around the world.
