LeBron James II

Dear LeBron,

Thank you for your great generosity to your native city, for the time you give to the young, and for the example of excellence and sport as art you give to the world.


God has entrusted you with the burdens of leadership.  Please lead your millions of young fans into pure food, not food which causes cancer, heart disease, food poisoning, strokes, kidney dysfunction, Alzheimer's, obesity etc.


Please end the advertising of cow and pig flesh for a fast food chain. They are 'foods' which cause many kinds of human disease, animal agony, energy waste, animal habitat destruction, global heating.  In the last 7 days your native city has had a 60 degree span in temperature from 12 degrees to 72 degrees .... one reason is the deforestation caused by cattle ranchers.


Please look at this video link of many dozen champion athletes who don't put dead bodies into their own body shrine.


PS: I once dreamt that you said 'save unnecessary steps'.... advice I have taken to heart.  God protect you.
