2020 has been challenging to say the very least. The pandemic, social unrest and political upheaval can send us right over the edge into the abyss.
I figure we can sit around, cowering in our masks or we can stand up, be strong and make the world a kinder, more compassionate place.

(From Christina: I read this in The Guardian and my mind was a little more than blown. This article is long but you will relish every word. And as the author states at the very end (spoiler alert…this is the end of the piece), “…the war on vegans is the act of a doomed majority fighting to defend its harmful way of life. Vegans might well be vociferous and annoying, holier-than-thou, self-satisfied and evangelical. But as their numbers grow beyond the margins, perhaps the worst thing they could be is right.”)

I have practiced a balanced vegan lifestyle for over 35 years. Lately, several young vegan influencers (whatever that means to you), are bailing on the lifestyle because they lost their vitality and wellness.

It’s National Vegan Month, which got me to thinking, as these various month-long commemorations often do. Sometimes they evoke a rant from me and sometimes, I want to just ruminate.
What does it mean to be vegan in this modern time? Is it elitist to eschew meat, a cultural phenomenon reserved only for the wealthy? Is it for celebrities looking for their thigh gap? Is it just for people who are dysfunctional around food? Or just for puppy lovers?
