Greetings of love and gratitude from
Turkeys Need Our Love More Than Ever
as Holidays Draw Near.
Our county has a Farm Tour every
fall enabling residents to visit local farms, all of whom claim to be
“humane.” Among others, I visited the Vesecky Farm which
supplies turkeys to our local “health food” store. The store used
to be vegetarian but has morphed into a “happy local meat” store.
They refer to this farm as “social justice for turkeys.” The
truth, of course, is just the opposite. The farmer buys newly
hatched turkeys through the mail each spring. Some arrive
dead. None have ever seen their mothers. He lets them walk
around in a fenced enclosure until fall when the trucks come to take
them to slaughter. I asked him, “Does it make you sad to know
they are going to be killed.” “No,” he chuckled, “That’s when I
Prayer for the Week for Turkeys and
the Farmers Whose Souls are Suffering:
There is still time for
some farmers to awaken to the violence they are inflicting on innocent
turkeys; there is still time for a few turkeys to befriend and awaken
the farmers. There is still time for our prayers and our focused
thoughts to encircle all turkeys with tender love and comfort. We
long to save them all and to stop this madness driven by greed,
ignorance, and unquestioned traditions. Our hearts are heavy as we feel
the suffering that most of them are enduring. Dear turkeys,
please forgive us for we have not yet stopped the violence against
you. But please know deep in your hearts that you will not be
forgotten, and your deaths will not be in vain. Our love goes
with you and our voices rise up to speak for you and your children, and
we will not be silenced. We will pray and act boldly until this
senseless war against you is over, and you will once again live as free
and joyful birds. May future Thanksgivings be celebrations of
Life and Love and Freedom for all beings everywhere.
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you,
dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and
shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all
beings will live in peace together.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace
for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from
