What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why Earthlings. As a human being, you know that people can be cruel. But you don't know just how cruel they can be until you watch something like this. This documentary not only bolstered my decision to be a vegetarian, but it exposed me to the absolute horror of animal cruelty in all of its forms, and made me all the more determined to help put an end to the suffering of animals. It made me realize that although my efforts are small, they are "ripples" - ripples in a whole sea of change.

Quotation "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years." -- Abraham Lincoln.

“Revolution is not something fixed in ideology, nor is it something fashioned to a particular decade. It is a perpetual process embedded in the human spirit.” -- Abbie Hoffman.

"To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb for the sake of the human body." -- Mahatma Gandhi.

"We need another and a wiser, and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time; fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.” -- Henry Beston, "The Outermost House", 1928.
