Thank you & Hello VEC Followers!
2 years ago, a younger man showed me @racingextinction Having grown up #fishing with my Dad, then watching the harpooning of a beautiful #mantaray flooded my #heart with the pain and death I have personally brought to this #earth -
#married to my wife, a #vegan of 6 years at that point, I was finally & embarrassingly able to admit to myself that #veganism was an answer. That very night, I told my wife, ‘I am 100% Vegan.’
Before that, I had many questions. You see, my degrees & #education are in #engineering HOW was always above WHY. I needed proof. Taught to be skeptical & use #science to defend my stance. So, I read & read & #read -
First, to debate against Veganism. Reading Joel Salatin, #paleo Books, Lierre Keith, Weston A. Price, etc. -
Discussing this with my wife, I found myself angry & wanting to win the husband-wife debate. She sat there and listened, while I blabbed on, with apparent #love in her #heart & a #peace that she wore on her face. So, which side do you choose? Who do you want to be? Full of Peace and Love OR full of #Anger and Competition? -
I did what I do. I began reading & reading. This time..the other side of the story. There was an immediate difference that you could feel in the authors tone. They cared. Not about themselves. They cared about another. Imagine that world.
About a year ago, I thought to share these reads on #instagram Most don’t enjoy or find time to read; I had to share this info.
Since the first post, much has changed. We have added 3 readers: @ckoko808 and @mattjwittman and @chill830
We currently do research for @joey_carbstrong and @jamesaspey -
True conversational activists spend their days easily waking people up to a simple truth. That is their strength.
We want them to keep their strength...THEIR strength, rather than harping on a weakness. This can cause burnout. Most gravitate towards their strength; life feels right this way; hence prolonging the Activist career.
We are asking for your #support to continue to grow and motivate us to continue our work for #activists and #animals around the globe. Link in Bio!
