What do you take a stand for?
Sunday, October 29, 2006
I am not a big hero, but growing up, I realized that there are many people who are being pushed around by others, just because they don't wear the right clothes, don't fit in, are shy or insecure. That always bothered me. I still step up when I see people getting bullied. Some things you just have to do, otherwise you are nothing but a piece of dirt. Becoming vegetarian because I can't contribute to the animal abuse in slaughterhouses anymore was also a big step for me to help in my little life achieve something bigger. I also want to help put an end to puppy mills. I spread the word not to purchase anything from pet stores selling puppies. Despite the fact that these are the tiniest steps, I know that I make an impact, even if it is ever so small. If more people would be concious of that, things could move along quicker. But we are getting there.
