I'm a member of a group that emails a daily food-for-thought question. When you answer, your comment gets left in limbo for moderation...my response was approved and it got posted on the board.
Here is the question and my response follows:
Who or what has given you a clearer picture of some important view on the world?
In 1982, being enlightened by knowing I was contributing to animal abuse by eating them and using them for clothing, household products, bodycare, and the horrors that animals go through by using milk, eggs, honey…Any type of animal product.
So from then on, I have been an activist for animals, in educating people in telling them in this day and age, we know longer need animals to be and stay healthy or use them for anything; we as humans have evolved to being healthily cruelty-free. I and many others are proof of this.
So I help strip away the assumptions and animal prejudices (speciesism) people have toward animals to provide people with a clearer view of a more peaceful world.
