How did you hear about the Oahu Vegan Meetup?

I was heavily involved with the Vegan Meet-Up group of Reno/Tahoe among many other Animal Activist groups as well. Believe me, it only takes one person to make changes in the world. But as a group we will have numberless diverse acts of courage & belief that will shape Human history. Each time we stand up for an ideal, or strike out against injustice,we send forth tiny ripples of hope that can, collectively, sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression & resistance. There is a temptation to follow the easy & familiar paths of personal ambition & financial success so grandly spread before us. But that is not the path that Spirit has marked out for us. All of us will ultimately be judged & as the years pass we will surely judge ourselves, on the effort we have contributed to making the world a better place in this lifetime. We must plant shade trees we will never sit under, Heaven will take note.

How veg are you? Vegan? Vegetarian? Flexitarian? Not at all?

Vegan, anything else promotes suffering. Veganism is more than what a person does or doesn't eat...it comprises who a person is. An animal-free diet is rooted in the head. A compassionate lifestyle is rooted in the heart.

How veg do you want to be and why?

Humans are the only species on earth that appears to have no idea what its ideal diet should be! Vegans accept on faith that all living beings treasure their lives. When we remove species from their natural environment, over breed them, and keep them captive, we distort their lives and imbalance the natural world. (and our inner world) Any rational person understands the striking difference between slitting the throat of a sentient animal and plucking a fruit or vegetable! Veganism is the most viable route to reinstating the vitality and sustainability of our earth and the only way to ensure peace and freedom for all species. Veganism isn't just about what we avoid...it is about what we think, say and do. If we embody our ethics, the influence of our short presence on this earth will continue its effect long after we are gone.
