The people’s awareness of the horrible suffering of animals is increasing rapidly. There is no humane killing or cruelty-free treatment if animals are raised for the only purpose to slaughter them in the end. One of the most popular TV hosts, Oprah Winfrey, even admits that we are living in times where people start to question the way they had always been living. She titles this development in the mindset of people as a “wake-up” call. That’s why she urged her 33.5 million twitter followers to skip meat on Mondays. Of course, this is not enough. However, there are so many people who started like that and then never looked back again. Their meat-free Monday became the beginning of a lifetime vegan journey!
“After interviewing HSUS President Wayne Pacelle, Winfrey pledged to go meat-free on Mondays and asked her huge fanbase to do the same.
President of The Humane Society of the United States Wayne Pacelle appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show Super Soul Sunday this past weekend to discuss the connection of humans to animals. Winfrey credited Pacelle’s new book The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals for raising her awareness about the connection between animal suffering and human consumption. Pacelle discussed the “schizophrenic” relationship we have with animals, proclaiming to love them while continuing to exploit them for food, fashion, and entertainment. “We are in a moment—are we not?—where there is an awakening to a new way of bringing consciousness to how we treat animals around us,” Winfrey said. “Listen,” Pacelle answered, “we were asleep with our treatment of animals,” adding, “I think in the last five to 10 years, we’ve started to wake up.” Pacelle offered Winfrey advice on what small things people could do to have an impact on the lives of animals, telling her to go meatless on Mondays. After the show, Winfrey took to Twitter and urged her 33.5 million followers to go meat-free.”
