Everyone’s a Vegetarian - July 20, 2008 - Uncategorized

I’m learning that most people, veggie or not, are caring and loving vegetarians – no matter what they eat. Maybe not now, but later.

Here’s something to think about this Christmas, when many of your children will be begging you for the latest computer game titles such as World in Conflict or Crysis.
