I know most of you do not care for the types of things I blog about (i.e. Animal Rights/Animal Abuse). And for those of you who do *follow me* I am sure some of you probably roll your eyes (a bit) when you see a new animal rights post appear in the *Reader* from me. I realize most of you “don’t want to know” what really goes on inside a factory farm, a so-called “organic farm”, a dairy farm or a slaughterhouse — I get it. A long time ago, I was where you are today – I didn’t want to know either; but a few years ago, I realized, I had to know because I couldn’t call myself an “activist” and “the voice of the voiceless” if I didn’t. I have subjected myself to some of the most painful-to-watch undercover video footage you can imagine (maybe you can’t imagine) and by doing so, I am able to educate people on why choosing a vegan lifestyle is kindest choice a person can make.
Now, with that said, I am not asking you to become a vegan, I’d like to, but I’m not going to. What I do ask of you, you the few who follow me is to please watch this video by Gary Yourofsky who is speaking to a group of college students. There is no blood, no gore, no scared-straight tactics. This video is just Gary talking about why he’s a vegan and an animal rights activists. The video is over an hour long, with a Q&A session at the end. So grab yourself a cup of coffee with vegan So-Delicious creamer, get comfortable and please, please, please watch.
I really do hope you will.
