According to wiki, Gary Yourofskys birthday is on the 19th of August & he is turning 47. If it is correct, I would like to wish you the happiest birthday & thank you for all that you've said & done.
Your speech is what made me become an ethical vegan. I still watch it from time to time & it never ceases to amaze, inspire & motivate me.
I was sad to find out shortly after I became vegan that you had retired but I understand completely.
Thanks again for everything & I hope you have a wonderful birthday. @therealgaryyourofsky 💚💚💚 #garyyourofsky#vegan#veganism#grateful#happybirthday
The truth will always be the truth even if no one believes it. When we know better, we must do better. The milk & meat industries are a billion dollar industry.. they have done a good job hiding the truth about dairy and meat from our consciousness.

Part 3 Veganism is for everyone. It's healthier, better for the planet & reduces an incredible amount of suffering and violence. You don't have to be an "animal lover". All you have to agree with is that it's wrong to unnecessarily hurt & kill animals.
If you agree with that, you already believe in veganism. - @jamesaspey 💚

@Regrann from @activistvegan - As vegans, we are often criticized for "pushing our views down people's throats", and we are often labeled "extremists", "terrorists" or "Nazis". The real reason people attack and resent us is because we make them take a close look at their habits and their own morality and they don't want to open that door to their soul. Why? Because deep down they know they are doing something wrong, yet they're not ready to change so this creates an uncomfortable feeling called "cognitive dissonance".
All social justice movements start with this sort of push-back and it's not until after the fact that people recognize that humanity's archaic and barbaric traditions were morally abhorrent. Perhaps not in our lifetime but some day, I believe the human species will evolve beyond animal exploitation. Why? Because no lie can live forever.

Video "Gary Yourofsky vs Animal Abuser Reporter" on YouTube.
'Who is Mother Nature? How did she create all of us? Where is she?’ Too many questions.
I found understanding the concept of someone putting so many different species of animals on Earth difficult to grasp.
‘Mother Nature…’ Rigodon seemed pensive. ‘Also known as Mother Earth, she is. She represents the life-giving and nurturing aspects of nature. She doesn’t have a physical body like us. Ethereal, she is. Inside all of us she is, from the moment we are born. Life herself, she is.’
'And where are all the other animal species? If there are so many out there, how come I’ve only met four?’ I asked.
As I was feeling so elated, I noticed how Rigodon’s face was overtaken by what it seemed to be an immense sadness.
‘Tragically, the number of animal species is dropping at an alarming rate, Benjamin. Every year no less than 10,000 animal species disappear off the earth, becoming extinct forever. Probably many more than this.’ .
I was distressed to hear this. 10,000 species disappear every year?
'But why? And how? Why are so many species becoming extinct suddenly?’ I asked, distraught.
Rigodon sighed. ‘They aren’t just becoming extinct… They are being annihilated. Killed. Wiped off the face of the Earth.’
He looked up at me, his eye fixed on me. ‘In pain our planet Earth is, Benjamin. Mother Nature is in desperation. So many of her Earthlings are suffering and dying every day, every hour, every second…’ Rigodon’s words trailed off.
Then Rigodon explained the concept of death and dying as clearly as he could.
'Dying is when someone goes and never comes back,’ he said.
'Why do they never come back?’ I asked.
'Because they cannot, as they ceased to exist. When someone dies they stop being, they don’t exist anymore.’
I was horrified to hear this. Noticing my stress, Rigodon tried to calm me down, and explained that dying was a normal part of life. The Circle of Life, he called it.
‘The circle starts when we are born, then we live our lives, and then we die, which closes the circle. To all Earthlings this happens,’ he said.
‘But what is killing all these Earthlings then?' I asked impatiently.
📖💥 Run, Little Benjamin, Run! NOW available!
There was a time when I looked at these sweet babies and made no connection to the meat on my dinner plate. Today I stopped and bought avocados to support my local farmer and thought I was so lucky to get to see their animals too. Twenty minutes of crying later, I am committed to saving one of these goats, from this farm. Some day, some how I'm going to do it. Everyone goes vegan for different reasons and I get that the journey there is different for everyone. If you aren't vegan, I really encourage you to start that journey today. Watch @forksoverknives, @cowspiracy or @therealgaryyourofsky speech on YouTube. Take small steps (or large leaps!) I'm here to help in any way possible. Comment or DM me.

Can't recommend Gary Yourosfky speeches enough 🌿
"I did not stop eating this stuff because of the taste. I stopped for ethics, morality, decency, compassion to the animals I share this planet with." 🌎 Doesn't that sound like LOKAH SAMASTA SUKHINO BAVHANTU? 📿
Recomiendo mucho ver algún discurso de Gary Yourofsky 🌿 "No dejé de comer esto por el sabor. Dejé de comerlo por ética, moralidad, decencia, y compasión hacia los animales con los que comparto el planeta"🌎 No es eso LOKAH SAMASTA SUKHINO BAVHANTU? 📿
"I am embarrassed to admit that I was 30 when I discovered the truth about dairy. Until then, like most people I believed the advertising lie about "happy cows" and "happy milk." I envisioned cows happily roaming in a field with their young, then coming into the barn where a farmer would gently release them of their "excess" milk, then back out to a lovely life in the sunshine with their children.
I thought milk was "wholesome" and "natural," and the only possible way to get enough calcium. Milk does a body good!, I had been told all my life. Even as a mother breastfeeding a then 1 year oId I blindly bought the lie and didn't make the connection.
It wasn't until i watched the "best best speech you'll ever hear" by Gary Yourofsky that it changed. The video showed how cows and babies were separated and how they were abused by humans. Only then did I realise how dairy is produced. The first time I heard the grieving bellow of the mother cow as her baby was taken from her, I knew exactly what that meant. That's how I would sound too.
The agony, and the gut wrenching horror of having your baby taken from you while you are vulnerable and lactating. Never to see your precious baby again, to have your body and your motherhood exploited for the pleasure of another species! I couldn't breathe. I cried and cried that day for all the mothers who have had their babies taken away. And I knew that I would never again take out my wallet and put my dollar down to support an industry that does this. I just let go of all the lies I'd been fed about it. I was so upset, and so angry. But now my conscience is clear.
People say to me, "But what about cheese?" And I say "There is vegan cheese that is delicious." They say they couldn't give it up, but from my point of view, I feel sick just thinking about consuming it, knowing what I now know. I'm sharing this because maybe you believe what the media made me believe and my only hope is that you realize how much harm you do when you consume dairy and you harm your baby as you feed him something that's not meant for him.
Truth, and this needs to change.
I don't know why we as a society think animals are just objects and are for our personal use. This is why I'm vegan, and this is what I am determined to change.
Please join me and thousands of others in our mission to ending the barbaric treatment and suffering of billions of animals.
💣💥Shocking news: My book is finally published and I'm now a published author.
I'm not one that gets easily excited, and I'm never proud of myself... except for this.
I worked bloody hard to bring Benjamin into life. I spent thousands of hours sitting, listening and feeling Benjamin, and also inside Gary Yourofsky's head. It was just my mind, my words, tonnes of cups of green tea, that background music... and all of them, these characters, pushing me to bring them into life.
And so I did.
So far only a couple of people has had some insight into my book: an editor and the one who formatted it into a Kindle ebook. They didn't get to read the book from start to finish like a reader will do, as they were working on bits and formatting. However, their feedback blew me away. It went something along these lines:
Person 1: wat have you done to me? You have turned my whole life upside down. Things will never be the same. Thank you forever.
Person 2: I do this work with my heart, as your book is so special, unique and informative, that it should reach as many readers as possible.
Both of them were non-vegan. Number 1 went fully vegan! I'm not sure about number 2, as I had only short contact with him.
I would never ask anyone to promote my book without even reading it.
So I'm going to ask you to read it, and then you can decide if you want to share it with others, vegans and non-vegans.
Now, there's something you do need to understand: you see, I didn't write Run, Little Benjamin, Run! ... Benjamin did ;)
I had a purpose. Now I have a goal. And I do also have a wish: that as many people as possible read Little Benjamin's words. That vegans give it as a gift to non-vegans.
Little Benjamin's words will never be heard and have an impact... unless YOU make this possible.

"The problem is that humans have victimized animals to such a degree that they are not even considered victims. They are not even considered at all. They are nothing; they don’t count; they don’t matter. They are commodities like TV sets and cell phones. We have actually turned animals into inanimate objects – sandwiches and shoes.” #garyyourofsky
