Episode 110: Love and Compassion with Nathan Runkle~Mercy For Animals

Ep: 110…. Love, Compassion, Connection, Empathy and Core Values.

Today’s Episode is more than a book interview.  We dive into hope and inspiration about what could be; a world free from unneeded pain and suffering.

Nathan started an organization 18 years ago that devotes its entire existence to advocating on behalf of farm animals, especially factory farm animals. The organization is called Mercy for Animals.

And his book entitled MERCY FOR ANIMALS is available September 12th, 2017 on all platforms. You can also reach out and get involved @ mercyforanimals.org  or the good food institute @ GFI.org

In this podcast we cover a lot of ground, talking about animal rights, laws that protect the factory farms such as ag gag laws and libel laws from transparency and  we talk about going vegan and vegetarian or even being meatless on Mondays.

We talk about the circle of compassion and how it is growing but all of us can divert our gaze and ignore that murder is a part of our everyday lives often every time we choose to eat meat, dairy and eggs.

Nathan is very good at asking not for perfection but for progress. You can choose to get involved by donating or by volunteering, or you can take a stand to reduce your consumption of animal products.

Remember, it’s about the “kind” choice, the acts of love. Animals, all animals have the ability to feel pain and in today’s factory farms, the abuse is insane and while, you may not know it,  eating meat is no longer required. You can choose plants, you can choose your core values to be ethical, loving, and filled with compassion.
