"Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else, but just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes. "
this is so important.
you fucking asshole.
How beautiful would a vegan world be though? All the life on the planet would be so so healthy, people and animals alike would be happy and free, there would be an abundance of nature and beauty and food everywhere, it would just be perfect, so much life and health and happiness everywhere. We have to make this happen.

I LEARNED A THING
"Rows and rows of calf hutches for a 16,000 cow dairy farm in eastern Oregon - one of the many dairy farms in the US.
On dairy farms, there are new babies being born every single day. Many dairy farms use the “hutch housing” system. Babies stolen from their mothers after birth (standard dairy industry practice) are housed in “calf hutches” (as seen). These babies, who are not allowed to drink their mothers’ milk, are fed “milk replacer” (another standard dairy industry practice) while their milk goes into the products humans consume.
For every hutch, there is a grieving mother and a motherless calf. The dairy industry would have us believe that this is humane. Don’t buy the lie.”
I’ve seen these with my own two eyes driving in vermont country. A tiny family farm had them.
Ben and Jerry’s procures milk for their products from places like this and larger throughout the state.
The dairy industry is the meat industry. Lacto vegetarianism is not ethical.
