My going vegan had nothing to do with being an “animal lover” – I wasn’t.

Like most people, I loved and cared about animals and I didn’t at all want them to come into harms way and, of course, I was against animal cruelty, but I never really saw them as equals.

Until I saw their suffering – they suffer equally, and that’s all that mattered. All it took was to witness this and that was it.

 

I couldn’t say I was against animal cruelty and abuse if I was still eating them. Plain and simple. 

And, by the way, I have become an animal lover.

Dare to make a difference. Go vegan.
