Sister's Friday Thoughts of The Day: We have no choice but to come full circle-everything is connected
Whether you initially became a vegan or vegetarian for health reasons as I did, or came to this lifestyle first for animal rights and environmentalism - everything comes full circle. I became more involved with animal rights activism as in my February 2011 protest against Ringling Brothers Circus and my March for Animal Rights that same week. If you came to veganism or vegetarianism for animal rights and environmentalism, you end up becoming more knowledgeable about the health benefits of these lifestyles. We are all a family in this vegan and vegetarian lifestyle. As we live as vegans and vegetarians...this beautiful lifestyle...we grow and become more knowledgeable. We use this advancement in knowledge acquired through reading, videos, forums, blogs, vegfests, and sharing of information with friends and strangers to advance ourselves in truth and understanding; to teach and motivate others; and, to become the protectors of the earth, environment, and abused animals. I will be spreading the word of vegan and vegetarian health benefits and animal rights activism in a few weeks at the Baltimore, MD VegFest. I will be speaking at the Oct 9th Baltimore, MD VegFest sponsored by Open The Cage Alliance. I will speak on veganism and animal rights activism (click here for details)
If you have not done so already, read John Robbins 1987 infamous book, Diet for A New America. John Robbins was suppose to be the heir to the Baskins Robbins empire; but, he declined his father's offer and monetary support to live as a vegan and vegan activist. John continues to teach others about the importance of a vegan lifestyle for one's health and is an international spokesperson within the realm of animal rights activism. Diet for A New America has brought many to veganism and vegetarianism for over 20 years. John and his wife lived on $600 a year, and ate from what they grew themselves for a couple of years after he declined to take over the family ice cream business due to his awareness of the correlation between food and health. Want more knowledge? Listen to John Robbins' March 2009 interview on Vegan Radio (click here)
If you were inspired by my February 9, 2011 animal rights activism against Ringling Brothers Circus and my February 12, 2011 March for Animal Rights, then view a video from PETA about Cloris Leachman's animal rights activism against Ringling Brothers Circus (click here)
Even if you came to veganism or vegetarianism for health reasons, eventually you will realize that everything is connected and become an activist yourself overnight. It just happens when you're sick and tired of being sick and tired. By supporting animal rights, you realize how the abuse and mistreatment of animals have a correlation to the diseases of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, flu viruses, and more that are prevalent and still on the rise.
