Every so often you see something on the internet that changes the way you think and feel about stuff. Today was one of those days for me. I cried, despite the happy ending. Then I decided to get a lot better about being vegan, as this is what is happening to millions of cow mothers and babies the world over, just so we can drink milk. Unless they are kept in the Vedic way, in which no calves or adults are slaughtered and the babies get their mothers' milk, this is what happens to cows.
(By the way, the happy ending was quite miraculous- the Gentle Barn people were told that Karma's calf was on its way to be sold for slaughter, but then the truck broke down and they agreed to let Gentle Barn have him.)
