I was forty at the time. The crash happened while I was going to work. It changed my life forever. Among other things, my near-death experience gave me a new appreciation of life, both human and nonhuman. I believe that all life has equal value and should be respected. Killing animals for any reason is not respecting life. VeganVoices are loud and clear. Go Vegan for animals, the planet, your health: mind, body, soul.

Amazon Book Description In The Modern Savage, renowned writer, historian, and animal advocate James McWilliams pushes back against the questionable moral standards of a largely omnivorous world and explores the “alternative to the alternative”-not eating domesticated animals at all. In poignant, powerful, and persuasive prose, McWilliams reveals the scope of the cruelty that takes place even on the smallest and-supposedly-most humane animal farms. In a world increasingly aware of animals’ intelligence and the range of their emotions, McWilliams advocates for the only truly moral, sustainable choice-a diet without meat, dairy, or other animal products.
