Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Reduce Greed
What Gives Me Hope Kind, caring, good people.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Encouraging non-violence and peace.
What/who changed my life and why The documentary film 'The Cove', because it was what prompted me to look into the plight of ALL animals, everywhere. Since then, I've spent every day learning and raising awareness about the most abused beings on Earth (non-human animals), as well as contributing to activism in this area. I also raise awareness for human rights and environmental issues. I now do not consume animal products for ethical reasons - for the animals, the Earth, and other people on this Earth. An added benefit is the healthy side-effects of consuming a plant-based diet.

Quotation It's hard to accept the truth when the lies were exactly what you wanted to hear. - Unknown

"I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it, for I shall not pass this way again."
— Stephen Grellet

"Awareness is bad for the meat business. Conscience is bad for the meat business. Sensitivity to life is bad for the meat business. DENIAL, however, the meat business finds indispensable." - John Robbins (Author of "Diet for a New America")

"If one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but if a lot of people are unkind to animals (especially in the name of profit) the cruelty is condoned and will be defended by otherwise intelligent people." - Ruth Harrison

"Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gun sight. And after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims are still around for others to enjoy." - Jimmy Stewart

“To be 'for animals' is not to be 'against humanity.' To require others to treat animals justly, as their rights require, is not to ask for anything more nor less in their case than in the case of any human to whom just treatment is due. The animal rights movement is a part of, not opposed to, the human rights movement. Attempts to dismiss it as anti human are mere rhetoric.” - Tom Regan

"Our task must to be to free ourselves - by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty" - Albert Einstein

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” - Albert Einstein
