“Heaven is where all the animals you've ever loved run to greet
you for going vegan.”

Those words rung true to my heart when I first had them designed not too long ago. I began to ponder these thoughts one Sunday morning, as I was listening to a spiritual talk about the grace of God, and the thought hit me like a ton of bricks: “Do animals go to heaven when we die? Would it be a heaven if our non-human loved ones are not there?”
Those thoughts haunted me for days. So I decided to see if anyone else would be able to answer this question for me. I talked to many people that I am close to, but to no avail, they all seemed to have differing opinions of animals in heaven. So I did what anyone in my position would do: take it to the internet!
I went onto the internet and checked tons of websites and forums of other people who were talking about this very topic. Upon hours and hours of research into the topic, I found more differing opinions on the topic, but hearing all of these opinions made me think, and think. Before long, I came to probably the best conclusion I could ever come up with:
That a heaven without our non-human loved ones is no heaven at all.
Would you want to spend an eternity in a place where you could not ever
meet the animals that you love?
I certainly would not. So the focus on trying to find a way to write this down on paper,
and being a vegan myself, the idea started to come to me in waves. Not only would the animals come and greet you in a place of love eternal, but also to thank you for no longer causing the suffering of other animals. If animals were like humans and were able to talks and protest,they would be appalled by anyone who would willingly look at them, but eat their brethren without a second thought.
“Heaven is where all the animals you have ever loved run to greet you for going vegan.” is the inspiration that came up.
It fit the thoughts that were winding in my head, and made sense. If nothing else, it is my own personal heaven, a heaven that I dream will come to fruition. Don't you want this to be a heaven for you as well? We could think we all want our animal friends and family to be with us, and there is nothing wrong with that.
Do you think animals go to heaven when we die?
