Personal Journeys of Animal Advocates

Harold Brown suffered a heart attack at the age of eighteen due to his heavy consumption of animal products.
As a cattle farmer he didn’t realize that his livelihood could cause so much damage. His extended family of farmers, the local community, youth organizations and TV were telling him one thing: Animal products are good.
Harold truly believed he was doing good work, living a good life and being a good person.
For the better part of his life he was not a conscious participant in what was happening. But deep down he felt uncomfortable with the things he was expected to do: Castrating calves, killing rabbits with his bare hands, and beating cows onto trailers.
Until the day a doctor told him to expect bypass surgery by the age of 35.
In an attempt to save his life, Harold embarked on a journey into veganism. Along the way he discovered the true meaning of compassion and found an new ethical foundation upon which to live his life.
Harold’s story is just one of the sixty three inspirational personal stories from some of the most eloquent, passionate and intellectually progressive voices in today’s Animal Rights movement.
