To the Vegan Activist…

Those that are actively and consciously working on themselves to embody empathy and compassion and with every word or action taken, ask themselves: “Is what I am saying or doing an extension of my compassionate values?”

May we be united in our compassion—for each other and for any fellow being suffering from exploitation and oppression.

We are all on the front lines. Actually, no…there are no front lines. This is not a military effort. This is a compassion effort. We are all in this together…in this circle of compassion.

Stand in your power. Stand in your peace. Stand in your kindness. Stand in your empathy. Stand in your compassion.

There are many ways to be an activist. What inspires you? Who has inspired you? Comment and tag below.
