There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Two of My Heroes: Emily Dickinson, Vincent van Gogh

I just found out Emily Dickinson was a vegetarian! Yay!

She was born in 1830, so it would have been a miracle if she had been vegan back then. Even to be a vegetarian in the 1800's was gutsy and great. I'm looking forward to reading her complete bio, as I have her book on poems.

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh was another vegetarian that I love. He was also born in the 1800's too--in 1853. I have all his paintings shown in a book, plus his letters to his brother Theo.

Two beautiful, gifted people, who I love as artists, and wonderful to know they were veg!
