Evil Destroyed Forever – Repentant People Live Forever

3. The June Peaceable Table Is Now Online

Contents include:

  • Judy Carman's Editor's Corner Guest Essay, comparing our thoughts to dandelion seeds, encourages us to acknowledge the terrible pain of the animals, but affirm and emphasize thoughts of hope and of a renewed and compassionate world.
  • In one of the NewsNotes, John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, envisions a world in which truly humane people put their fellow animals into their hearts rather than into their dinners.
  • H. Jay Dinshah, near-lifelong advocate for animals and founder in 1960 of the American Vegan Society, is the June Pioneer,
    Gerald Niles comments in the Letter column that it's hard to understand how someone could be an environmental activist without also being an animal activist.
  • Do you like the tangy-sweet taste of lemon curd? If so, you will want to indulge yourself with Ahimsa Lemon Curd featured as one of the two June Recipes.
  • Benjamin Urrutia reviews Carl Hiaasen's new novel for teens, Skink:No Surrender, dealing with ecological threats and animal protection in the Everglades by an eco-avenger who calls himself Skink and his new teenaged sidekick Richard. They have exciting adventures as they track down a vicious poacher and look for Richard's missing cousin Malley.
