Friday September 23, 2016 is Hug a Vegetarian Day.

“It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living, by its purely physical effect on the human temperament, would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.”
– Albert Einstein

“There are people in the world who believe that there is no reason that mankind should go on eating animals, and there’s plenty of arguments to support this stance. Both the environment and our health can benefit from excluding meat and animal products from our diets and living on all plant derived food. Additionally, there’s a lot of cruelty in today’s meat industry, and this amount of suffering can be alleviated by fewer people eating meat. This day honors those who have taken this step to live a cruelty free life by removing meat from their diet.

The history of this day is tied to the history of PETA, the organization that founded it. For people who don’t know, PETA means “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. ”It has grown and become a very well-known symbol for the fight against animal cruelty.

Hug A Vegetarian Day was established to show recognition and appreciation for those that have made the, often difficult, transition to a meat free and animal-product free lifestyle. Being a vegetarian isn’t always easy, your food options tend to be limited at restaurants, and there’s a strange social hostility against those who choose to not consume animals. So give these brave souls a hug to thank them for the animal lives they save, and the difficulties they sometimes face in their race to save our animal friends.

PETA sponsors a hug pledge program, where you can sponsor with a pledge to give hugs to all the Vegans and Vegetarians you meet. You could always start there, or just go out and hug the vegetarians and vegans you know and thank them for living a cruelty free life and honoring our fellow animals rather than consuming them.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/nip1z
