More Good News: The fairly mainstream magazine Prevention features an article in their February, 2013, issue about one of our vegan and animal rights heroes, Kris Carr. The article is titled "A Crazy Sexy Anniversary," because the author of the article is recognizing that Kris received her cancer diagnosis 10 years ago in February. The diagnosis indicated that she had an inoperable, and incurable cancer. Yet Kris considers herself thriving in spite of it, largely due to her vegan lifestyle. On the cover of Prevention the reference to the article states, "Choose happiness: Kris Carr's life-changing lessons."
With vegan restaurants and vegan choices at regular grocery stores, coupled with celebrities choosing veganism and articles like this one in mainstream magazines, there is much to celebrate. But all of this progress toward compassion has come as a result of relentless dedication and hard work by all of you, by Kris, and by the many people whose hearts are "burning with love for the whole creation," as St. Isaac put it.
This week let us give thanks for our devoted Prayer Circle partners and for all the heroes out there who refuse to let go of the True Vision of a world at peace for all beings and who work and pray to make it so. Let each of us shine our Light of Love and Gratitude and so help reveal peace to all the world and to every being in it.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy; and Will, Madeleine, and the Circle of Compassion team.
