"I don’t really like people, but it’s difficult to get comfortable with loneliness. I mean, I’ve tried to have friends, but it never works out. And I’m tired of going out alone. I’m ok staying in at my place. It smells good when I burn incense and I have a lot of records and I can just play video games.”
The bus she was waiting for arrived. “Do you need to go?”
"It’s ok. Another one will come in ten minutes… But then, you know, sometimes I just want a partner— a relationship. It would be nice to share this part of my life with someone. I’ve been single for years, and you know, there are people I could call if I wanted to. But people always end up saying things that rub me the wrong way, or if I open up to them, suddenly they want me to be their best friend, and I don’t want people to have expectations of me. I don’t want to waste anyone else’s time if I’m not interested in being close to them."
Another bus came and went while she told me about the loneliness, wiping tears from her eyes. Then another. “I’m sorry, I’ve talked too long.”
"It’s really ok. Sometimes we just need to connect."
"Yeah, I forget that sometimes."
This was so disheartening yet so comforting to read. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one.

"I became a vegan the day I watched a video of a calf being born on a dairy farm. The baby was dragged away from his mother before he hit the ground. The helpless calf strained his head backwards to find his mother. The mother bolted after her son and exploded into a rage when the rancher slammed the gate on her. She wailed the saddest noise I’d ever heard an animal make, and then thrashed and dug into the ground, burying her face in the muddy placenta." ~ James McWilliams
Elvis from Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary
Elvis was discovered by an animal lover in a dark, dismal barn with several other calves tied up and awaiting their sale to a veal farmer at the next livestock auction. They were just babies – scared and alone after being pulled away from their mother so that humans can consume the milk that is rightfully theirs.
Appalled by the conditions, she chose to save as many lives as she could and Elvis, Ralphie and Andy are now permanent residents here at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, enjoying acres of pasture, a clean, dry shelter and lots of love. Instead of being slaughtered at 6 months, they may enjoy life well into their 20′s.
Many do not realize that veal is a direct by-product of the dairy industry. To maximize milk production, farmers artificially inseminate cows every year. Female offspring are saved to make future milking cows. Male calves are taken from their mothers shortly after birth. Some are slaughtered just after birth for “bob veal.”
In the U.S. most are destined for veal crates where they will endure 14 to 17 weeks of torture in a pen so small they can’t even turn around. With dairy cows, it is not economically viable to raise the males for beef. Their flesh is not as desirable as the “beef” breeds such as Angus or Herefords – so they become veal instead.
Please, not only boycott veal, but dairy, because they are the same industry.
