Actually, going vegan, far from ruining your Thanksgiving, should help bring you back to the authentic meaning of the holiday: gratitude. Since I won't eat a dead turkey that has had a miserable life, I can have a more honest, authentic, and joyful Thanksgiving.
And I'm grateful that I saw through the lies of the meat and dairy industries, and that people like Foer are exposing those lies!

Each time you bite a piece of meat, you are aware deep within your mind (almost unconsciously) in what cruel manner the animal was killed. But you willfully suppress that knowledge so that it want come to your conscious knowledge.
Practise this over a period of time and you become hard hearted, insensitive to cruelty towards others. The ultimate result is that man becomes a cruel animal himself, as is well demonstrated all over the world today.
On Monday October 4th, the CBC (Canadian Broadcast Corporation) aired an interview between Jonathan Safran-Foer and chef Anthony Bourdain on the topic of “Should we eat meat?”
It was heard across Canada and parts of the United States, and can be heard anywhere now by going to the following website and clicking on the October 4th chapter.
The interview is the second item and starts at about 22:00 minutes. You can move the slider and skip over the first item on the agenda, if you want. The topic is focused on the ethical issue.
I just finished the book "eating Animals" and it was fantastic. Of course I was already veg anyway but I'm glad Mr. Safran Foer and others like him are getting the truth out - people need to know!
More celebs should follow this lead. Let's get the word out!
