I absolutely love to see young people changing the world for the better, which is one of the many reasons I love working for peta2. Seeing everything you all are doing never ceases to amaze me. Young people are most definitely making a huge effort to change the world around us. It’s awesome!


I wanted to tell you all about an all-girl band made up of three sisters, called Truth on Earth. Serena, Kiley, and Tess are all vegan and do all they can to help animals. Check out what their band Web site says:

We write original songs about major issues in the world that need attention and sustainable solutions brought to them. We try to make great sounding songs that pull you in and make you want to hear more in the hopes that our lyrics inspire you to take action as you learn that there is a lot that can be done. We believe in the power that music has to reach and connect people around the world.

Sweet, right? Their song, “Factory Farm” is all about—you guessed it—animals on factory farms. Here’s a portion of the lyrics:

Is it normal I wonder – to live in fear and pain? Never loved for a minute – just tormenting my brain. What kind of a person – slaughters helpless all day long? If a child kills animals – then humans, is it wrong?

Have a look inside my jail – You eat my suffering. I’ll stand in one place all my life while you’re – digesting my misery. And when your end is near – you’ll feel our agony. Our lives are a holocaust – not just the cow you eat.

When you were a child – you knew the difference. You loved my petting zoo cousin – in the safe little four wall fence. That burger’s disguised – you’re blinded by apathy. You forget as you eat – the bad karma is me?

Come join my nightmare now You’ll be sad you did. Hope you like my body parts, after they slice me into bits. Welcome to our death camp here on the factory farm. The Nazis would be proud – Where the hell’s our mom?

Go here to check out the music video for yourself.

Music is definitely a great way to spread a message, so keep doing what you’re doing, Truth on Earth!

    ☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ My name is Jason. Top 10 quirks: 1. I’m vegetarian. 2. I’m Sagittarius 3. Artist 4. I love The Beatles 5. Love dogs! 6. Spring is my favourite season. 7. I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol). But my favourite actors are Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman. · My favourite foods/restaurants are mangos, 99 Restaurant, Dominoes pizza, pickles, & Pinkberry/Froyo World.

As for Horror films the scariest I’ve seen are: Vile, Quarantine, Would You Rather & Truth or Die My favourite books are The Catcher In The Rye, Penpal, It’s Kind Of a Funny Story, & Life As we Knew it. · My favourite quotes are "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
