Today was a day where the universe seemed to align for me and send me some kind of sign. At lunch I spoke with some coworkers about veganism and ethics after @jonny__sherm mentioned a new movie on Netflix, OKJA. As many of my coworkers know, I love talking about anything related to veganism at work, mainly because I think it's important to normalize veganism and make people feel comfortable talking about it openly. .
After work, I was talking to my dad, @harrynikoletos who told me he recently watched What The Health (also on Netflix) and has made the commitment to being fully vegan. He previously ate a plant-based diet, eating meat and dairy a few times a year, and noticed that whenever he would eat these animal products he felt their effects and did not feel his best. What The Health exposes the corruption in the healthcare industry and shows that many of the leading health organizations are not acting in the best interest of the general population and those suffering from various diseases. .
As vegans, it can feel incredibly overwhelming at times - knowing all the suffering and cruelty that billions of animals endure every day on this planet. It also feels incredibly rewarding at times like these, when we see the impact of our voices speaking out - when friends and family approach us with their commitment to live a healthier, more ethical lifestyle. Every single one of us can make a huge difference - if you get even one or two of your friends or family members to go vegan, the ripple effect can create hundreds of new vegans, with the ability to save thousands of animals (and carbon emissions) every year. Slowly, the world is changing, and the vegan movement is gaining incredible momentum. Not far in the future, people will look back on this time and say "how could they possibly have done that and thought those things" - the same way we look back on historical "norms" and wonder how anyone could have believed in what they thought was normal. .
Join us - become vegan and start speaking out for the animals. We need more vegans to mobilize and start speaking out about the truth. Go Vegan, make peace, speak out ✌🏼❤️🌱
