Come with us if you want to live.


Many of you know that I am a vegan. I haven’t watched this yet, but hope to find it and watch it soon. I became a vegetarian, now vegan in college almost 40 years ago. Some of the issues shown here are the reason. I sensed back the, as a kid, there were bad consequences with raising and eating meat/chicken/seafood. Now the problem is upon us. I’m not usually very political, but I know many of my followers are informed and interesting people, so I figured I would share.
