My name is Sandra Kyle and I am also one of the 'vegan voices.' I have admired your work for many years, and I loved reading your essay in the book. I am promoting Vegan Voices through my website. Hopefully you can share it. The more people who read the book the closer we will come to a vegan world. “I began to understand that the world we had created was a symptom of our own consciousness.” – Sandra Kyle, “A Momentous Time to Be Living Through,” Vegan Voices
“Something I learned about chickens when I started knowing them decades ago is how vocally charged they are from morning to night. All day long, I hear their voices outside, ringing and singing…
“By contrast, if you open the door of a Tyson or Perdue chicken house after the newborns have been there for a week or so, you will not hear a peep or a rustle. If you enter a facility where hens have been caged for eggs for a few months, the sound of silence will strike you more forcibly than commotion.
“Of all the indicators of their suffering, the sound of thousands of chickens together, mute and unmoving, is the eeriest, most audible signal that something is wrong.”
