Thich Nhat Hanh
Zen Buddhist Monk, teacher, peace activist, founded Plum Village Meditation Practice Center
(1926 - )

"Every day forty thousand children die in the world for lack of food. We, who overeat in the West, who are feeding grains to animals to make meat, are eating the flesh of these children."

"By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegan will make a difference in the health of our planet."
