Thank you to the people who have chosen to end their participation in animal exploitation. Thank you to the vegans with a low income who are an example to others and show that it is possible to eat and let other beings live. To the vegans with medical conditions, who struggle, but still choose not to contribute to the oppression of animals. To those who are battling a mental illness who at days cannot cope with the weight of the world, but show you how far their empathy extends. To the animal rights activists who go out and protest, give out information, are courageous enough to be mocked and ridiculed, and get home drained. Don’t stop! The animals need your voice, humans need your information! You are the revolutionaries! To the people who are rescuing animals and provide them with a home and a life filled with love. You are the healers and the protectors of this planet. Even if some days you feel there is no hope, when you see the darker side of humans, when you get tired of explaining to others that animals deserve their freedom, I want to tell you to please keep going. You might not see it at times, but you ARE doing something! You lead by example, you teach others that the highest form of knowledge is kindness. By not consuming or using animals you show others that this life is meant for ALL to live in peace. You show that we must not take the planet and its inhabitants for granted.
