2. This Week’s Famous Quote

3.  Meatless Mondays is Spreading
Evanston Township High School is the first Chicago-area high school to participate in the weekly Meatless Mondays campaign that is spreading around the country. About 50 percent of entrees offered on Mondays are meatless, such us tofu stir-fry and black bean burgers. Meatless Monday encourages a sustainable, compassionate and healthy lifestyle.

It's fantastic that Meatless Monday is spreading in so many schools around the country! I truly believe that when children and teenagers are exposed to the devastation, cruelty and disease that consuming animal products involve, they are likely to embrace a plant-based diet. 

4. This Week’s Bible Verse
(RSV) Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Following Jesus’ teachings guide and help us live according to God’s will; and in turn we reflect His/Her love and compassion onto all Creation. 

5. A Look into a Not-So-Far Future
Meat-eaters, pay attention! It seems that if we ever colonize other planets, the inhabitants are going to be only vegetarian. At least that’s what Elon Musk, US billionaire, co-founder of PayPal and considered one of America’s most respected private space entrepreneurs, believes. He announced plans to build a settlement for 80,000 people on Mars as long as the inhabitants are vegetarian. The technology to make this trip possible might be available in the next decade.

We might have learnt the most important lesson of all. If we are to live in a harmonious, sustainable and joyous planet, animal agriculture does not have a place in it. Eating animals devastates God’s Creation and sustains the most egregious and voluminous cruelty on Earth.
