So why should I be the change? Watch this and be inspired, it's easy to be the change, not just hope for it.  And as Osho says, "Change yourself, and you have already started to change the world.".

Making the Connection:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnlVS3sw_-s&feature=related

"Most of our animal uses are transparently frivolous and cannot be described as involving any 'necessity.' For example, we kill billions of animals every year for food. It is certainly not necessary for us to eat animal flesh, dairy, eggs, or other animal products; indeed , the evidence is mounting that animal foods are detrimental to human health. Moreover, animal agriculture is an ecological disaster. The only justification that we have for using animals in this way is that we are accustomed to and enjoy the taste of meat and animal products." - Prof. Gary L. Francione
