Sweet, gentle, loving, beautiful Miss Mattie Moo Moo, Maggie Mae, Matilda, I miss you!
I love you.
Please forgive me.
Somebody stole the flowering cactus plants I put in the ground at her head.
The man who lives in the school bus along tank road said he remembered Matte and me. (We met last year, when he had a puppy who looked like the baby Moo.) He accepted a small bill and said "Yes," he'd put a bottle of water on the plants once a week or so. His favorite beer is Natural Light; I said is bring some cold ones next time I visit.... I'm SO sorry I sold my motorcycle, Matte would be happy I was riding guilt-free--I could go visit her grave on my bike!
Your sign he said, pulling up beside us at a red light, casting his eyes toward Mattie's side, back window. It has the text from the front of the nonviolence united vegan shirt:
For the PEOPLE
For THE PLANET
FOR THE ANIMALS
"I think it would be a much better world if more people would," he declared. I agreed.
Thank you, universe, for providing us some positive feedback!
Remember to tell somebody you care, if you do. You might be the only person who has the courage to say it aloud today. More importantly, ACT like you care. "Act"-as in "behave," not "pretend," -that you care!
If you care about ANYTHING, you have at least one really good reason to be vegan. Being vegan protects life. Feel free to write if cannot discern how being vegan relates to whatever "it" is about which you care.... It will be a pleasure & privilege to assist you in discerning the interconnectedness, if I can. :)
