American activist and author, Peace to All Beings: Veggie Soup for the Chicken's Soul, Prayer Circle for Animals

"I am thinking of the many who are still holding their sense of mercy in check for fear of social disapproval. I kept mine in check for too long. And each time I let it out, I felt the pressure to conform – true enough. What helped me? It was seeing others speak out, be ridiculed, and have the courage and inner certainty to speak out again and again. If we can be desensitized to animals’ pain, then we can also desensitize ourselves to being ridiculed and pressured.”
~ “Peace to All Beings, Veggie Soup for the Chicken’s Soul”, Page 41,
