Like a spiritual awakening, that’s how the vegan way has seeped into my life:

Veganism is nothing less than the evidence of one’s commitment to nonviolence – the determination to eliminate our support for cruelty to others carried out on our behalf.

Veganism is a demonstration of the awareness of fundamental principles of justice – an ongoing declaration of our conviction that acts of brutality and oppression are not excusable simply by virtue of the species of the victims.

Veganism is an acknowledgement of the responsibility of the individual – the recognition of our obligation to minimize the harm we cause by our existence, and to develop in ourselves the qualities necessary to become citizens of a better future; where no one is oppressed, where no one is treated as a means to an end.
