Just articulating some things that I have been trying to come to terms with lately, specifically this desire to see "results" and to claim responsibility for things we really have no right to claim responsibility for.
When someone takes animal rights seriously and goes vegan, it's their "victory" and no one else's. The benefit is for all, but the credit for that is given to the individual who takes that action. And alternatively if people resist and turn away, that also lies with them. Let us pay closer attention to our own actions as individuals and if more of us do that, advocates especially, then I think there will be some wonderful "results".
