Love Your Mother This Valentine’s Day

This Valentines Day, show your mother how much you love her. All of our lives, she has been unconditionally caring for us, giving us food, shelter, clothing, and so many other beautiful gifts. She has been unconditionally loving us all this time, and chances are you have just been using her and taking her love for granted.

Unfortunately all of our exploitation and ungratefulness has caused her to become sick. She has a bad fever and it is getting worse. This is a perfect opportunity for us to show her our love. Heres how:

According to a report recently released by the University of Chicago “Vegetarianism is the new Prius” becoming vegetarian does more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions then driving a hybrid vehicle. This means that simply by abstaining from the consumption meat products, we are helping to reduce the fever ravaging mother earth. And it’s easy. Many of us are forced to drive cars in order to go about our daily lives, and most are unable to afford hybrid vehicles. It is almost impossible to give up the use of electricity, and it would be a bit too cold for comfort (those who spent any time in the Midwest over the past few weeks can relate with this) if we stopped using natural gas to heat our homes.

Meat, however, is in no way necessary for human survival or comfort. In fact, we are able to survive better without it. Many studies have proven the undeniable health and economic benefits of a vegetarian diet. You will feel happier, healthier, lighter, and more lovable. Cost is not a problem here either, as vegetarian foods are in general cheaper then meat.

So this Valentines, show your love for mother earth, as well as all of your sisters and brothers (as my father always used to say “if mama aint happy, aint nobody happy”), by becoming vegetarian. Don’t just talk love, act love. Take a veggie vow for at least a week, or a month, or a year, or forever. Show the world that you really do care.

Yours in service,
Chaitanya das
