If you are the sort to make New Year’s resolutions, which ones have you made that pertain to non-human animals? While it’s common to focus one’s efforts upon Improving Oneself (I will lose weight, I will read more, I will take an evening class), how about this year making at least one resolution that helps the animals?
My ten-year-old niece, for example, decided that she would become vegan for her New Year’s resolution. She was already vegetarian, and, after much thought, realized that it was hypocritical to rant and rave against people who ate chickens when her consumption of milk was causing just as much harm. So, she’s going for it, and I’m very proud of her. She even launched a new website!
So, if you have any resolutions that concern animals, please share! (For the record, mine is to further reduce my use of plastic, a material that causes untold harm to millions of animals.)
For the animals,
