I am vegan because I do not believe that there is any humane way to make money off of animals, no matter what “humane meat” promoters say, and I don’t want to feed into any industry that tries to do so. I think veganism is important because, though most people say “to love others you must first love yourself,” I disagree. I think that to love yourself you must first love others, and for me that was a love of animals shown through veganism (and other life choices). It means everything in my life--in short, promoting the vegan movement and helping the wellbeing of animals everywhere is my reason for living. For those around me this means raising awareness about industry practices they would otherwise never know about, and thus raising compassion.Keep them coming everyone! We'd love to hear what veganism means to you.
Happy World Vegan Month, and Happy VeganMoFo Day 4!
