Today’s quote links in well with the post I wrote earlier on, central to the idea of how the world is changing. This quote really puts the ‘fight’ for world wide acceptance and approval of a vegan lifestyle into perspective, through highlighting that with perseverance and dedication change really can happen and so really are worth fighting for in the end. I hope this quote gives hope and motivation to all those already dedicated to the cause.
“150 years ago, they would have thought you were absurd if you advocated for the end of slavery. 100 years ago, they would have laughed at you for suggesting that women should have the right to vote. 50 years ago, they would object to the idea of African Americans receiving equal rights under the law. 25 years ago they would have called you a pervert if you advocated for gay rights. They laugh at us now for suggesting that animal slavery be ended. Some day they won’t be laughing.”
