How To Change The World

from Diana Artemis - [email protected] 

One baby step at a time. "Big breakthroughs" never "just happen." They're the result of every person doing one small thing one day at a time: saying something casual and genuine while waiting in line at the grocery store about soy burgers or the suffering that cows go through to produce milk and how it harms human health -- not a scary, preachy lecture, but something casual and friendly.

Investing 34 cents to mail a letter to your Congressperson or other decision maker; or making a call.

Forwarding a letter or article to a friend, co-worker or family member, etc., etc. Engaging them in friendly, genuine conversations.

Selecting a vegan cookbook as a gift with a brief note saying, "thought you'd like to try these great recipes," etc., etc.

Not that I think Christianity is a model religion, but it did, after all, start with 12 people talking one-on-one with other people; now, for better or worse, it circles the globe.
