Hello, I spotted this on Facebook today and decided I needed to share it. It puts it into perspective for me and only grounds my feet and plants them dead on center in my decision to be vegan.Every species deserves to experience life and enjoy its freedom but so many animals don’t get that choice. People are distraught when we read stories about newborn babies dying in house fires. “They haven’t had a chance to experience life ” is something I hear said often. But why is it so different for animals?
Are humans that naive that we don’t apply our own words to other species? My world has exploded with possibilities, tastes, colors, textures and happiness since going vegan. I strongly believe that it’s the modern way to live and that eating animal products is outdated and old-fashioned. We don’t need it and we can thrive without it.
Surely it’s about time we started allowing animals the lives we would want for ourselves? They deserve the respect and freedom just like a newborn baby or a teenager beginning to make life choices would.
Thank you for caring
