What better way to spend a couple hours on Martin Luther King day than to honor what he was all about – not staying silent about things that matter. So I got out my cardboard and markers and made a sign: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”, and headed to the nearest New Seasons supermarket.

I got the best response from folks helping them make the connection that animal rights = human rights. That justice for all means all individuals, including non-human animals. Humans are a part of the animal kingdom and what better way to celebrate that we’re all in this together than by remembering our fellow earthlings are here with us, too. 

Just because any one of us on this earth – human and non-human – is different from anyone else does not make them any less deserving of what we all want: to be treated with respect, kindness, and love.  

This nice shopper is holding up my sign – she and her whole family just went vegan at the new year, and they are motivated! When I asked why, she said her kids did not like that they were eating innocent animals, and she has been wanting to make healthier food choices.

Be Daring. Go vegan.
