1. LETTER FROM A VEGAN MOM TO HER VEGAN CHILD.

    Letter To Ciera from her mother, Heather

    You’ll never watch an elephant standing on her head
    You will see amazing acrobats and painted clowns instead.

    You’ll never color Easter eggs or eat a “Happy” Meal
    Instead you’ll give pigs belly rubs - You’ll know chickens dream and feel.

    The clamor from the ice cream truck won’t be music to your ears 
    You will know your Soy Delicious caused no suffering or tears.

    You may hear a gentle gobble as you softly stroke a turkey 
    And give thanks that she’s alive as you’re eating your Tofurky.

    While other kids buy leather shoes and eat at Chuck E. Cheese
    You’ll be kissing cows and feeding goats and saying “soy please!”

    Being different can be hard I know - This world is often cruel
    Maybe you’ll be laughed at by the other kids at school.

    But compassion is a vital gift that too few share with others
    And your heart will not be filled with guilt the way it plagues your mother’s.

    So don’t ever be embarrassed or ashamed because you care
    You’ll be uniquely beautiful with an empathy that’s rare.

    And when you see a rescued lamb and touch his thick warm fleece
    You’ll feel no sadness or remorse - You can look at him in peace.

    What took so long for me to learn, I’ll start teaching you from birth
    And your footprint will be much tinier on this fragile earth.
