Charlotte makes all kinds of friends while spreading the vegan message in Colonial Williamsburg. And the William and Mary tour for incoming students tells everyone about 'the vegan message pig'. I've had so many strangers ask me if she is the vegan pig they've heard about. And today a lot of people thanked me for what Charlotte and I are doing by raising awareness for animals. And I only had one woman say she had half eaten Charlotte for lunch on her Italian Sub. But she quickly apologized when I pointed out how rude it was to say that and explained how it would be like making a joke about the holocaust to a Jewish person while it was still going on. Charlotte is fortunate to be part of a family and not a month a way from heading to slaughter or listed for free on Craigslist possibly ending up part of some shoddy backyard BBQ effort.
But, hundreds of people fell in love with her and had the hearts exposed to the message on her button telling the number of animals slaughtered each day. Hopefully many seeds of compassion were planted!
