I just opened up an email from my most favorite book stores Changing Hands in Tempe and I was overjoyed to see that Gene Baur, President of Farm Sanctuary will be there speaking and signing books for free on September 30th. Whether you are veg or you just care about animals you should check this out. He is a smart well spoken man that has made a difference in the lives of thousands of animals. Farm Sanctuary rescues and revives down farmed animals who some of them were literally left on the side of the road to die. Why? Because they weren't "good enough" to eat, nor were they good enough to deserve to live. The factory farms in our country may want you to think all of their animals live happy full lives but the sad truth is these animals suffer pains that you can not possibly begin to imagine. I will get off my soapbox, because that is not what this blog is about, but if you have the time, I suggest going to either one of these speaking engagements and learn the truth behind modern "farming".
