Early in 2012 I started reaching out to vegan friends on twitter to ask them to share their testimonials. My hope was that by getting vegans to share their stories we could educate and inspire others and give people first hand accounts to replace perceptions or stereotypes. I’m incredibly grateful to those that have participated. Their stories speak for themselves! If you enjoy the series please let us know!
Imagine a woman hobbled by arthritis. She leans heavily on her cane, struggling to walk 50 feet without stopping to rest. As she lowers herself to a sunny bench, her joints creak and pop. She sweeps her greying hair away from her face and sighs. She has just come from the doctor, who told her that the changes in her health lately are the first signs of menopause. Her husband calls out to her from the parking lot, but she doesn’t turn – her hearing is starting to go. He’s also noticed her memory is not what it once was. She is so very tired.
