Being Thankful for Wise Advice

Dear vegan friends and animal activists,

Yes, it’s here again. The hardest week in the year for so many of us who live in the United States. While everyone dismembers a turkey corpse in front of us, celebrating taste and texture of a dead being, we sit there overwhelmed with sight and smell–affronted, disappointed, and probably heart-broken.

We see people we love celebrating over death.

Hey, one of them once again might ask you why you are a vegan.

Another one may say, “really, don’t you want any?”

A third may say, “Don’t you love your grandmother any more? She worked so hard on the stuffing.”

A fourth may say, “How can you celebrate Thanksgiving with us without eating our food.”

A fifth may say, “I know you really want the ‘drumstick,’ come on, take one bite, I know you want it.”

Need I continue to enumerate all the rudeness you will be facing just a few days from here?

Here’s my advice, IGNORE THEM. Really, it’s the hardest but wisest thing to do.

A Thanksgiving meal is not the time to explain or defend your diet. You become their entertainment.
