Winter and summer are two seasons that have songs clearly associated with the time period. But are there any songs that remind you of fall?
Barry White's "SEPTEMBER, when I first met you."
September, When I first met you Remember? Ooh what a night it was, how I
Had it planned. The things I would say and do; The way I'd hold your hand.
But when you rushed into my arms there was nothing left to say.; ) I'll
Never forget that night, I'll never forget that day.
September, When I First Met You, REMEMBER?

ABOUT WORLD DAY FOR FARMED ANIMALS

World Day for Farmed Animals (WDFA), founded in 1983, is dedicated to exposing the needless suffering and death of sentient animals raised and slaughtered for food. World Day for Farmed Animals will continue until animals are no longer seen as commodities, raised for their flesh and by-products.

WDFA takes place on or around October 2nd to honor the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, an outspoken advocate of non-violence towards animals. As he said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated."

Why A Day Just for Farmed Animals?

  • Each year approximately 65 billion animals are killed to produce meat, eggs, and dairy. More animals are killed for food than for all other reasons combined.
  • Most of these animals are raised on factory farms, where they are confined, mutilated, and raised to grow so large, so quickly, that many of them literally suffer to death.
  • Even animals raised on small family farms endure many of these abuses, and all animals raised for food face a gruesome slaughter.
