Racism is not ended by being nice. Nice is an attitude. You could be nice to your slave. Racism is not an attitude; racism is about power.
"Everybody wants to be a cat."
Because I wanted to live in a way I felt was right for me.
I wanted to live peacefully without sacrificing another’s life for my own.
I wanted to go to bed knowing my body is free from cruelty, fear and suffering.
I wanted to make a difference in a world which is backwards.
I wanted to live healthily and lower my chance of disease.
I’m vegan because I believe in it 100%
You soak up others’ moods and desires like a sponge. You absorb sensation the way a paintbrush grasps each color it touches on a palette. The ethereal beauty of a dandelion, the shift of a season, the climax of a song, or a certain stirring scent can evoke such wonder it’ll behave as your very breath itself- moving through cells as fuel does to fire and wind does to waves.
Seriously. Clean up after yourself. Encourage other people to clean up after themselves. Clean up after other people. Reduce, reuse, recycle. Encourage other people to reduce, reuse, recycle. Even the smallest action is a positive step in the right direction.
And go vegan. It’s the biggest positive impact you can make on the environment, as animal agriculture causes 70% of deforestation, more CO2 emissions than all forms of transport combined, and releases 89,000lbs of waste per second into the environment. A meat eater causes 7 times more emissions than a vegan does. (source)
