In my studies, I have seen that the worlds vegetarian population is somewhere around 6 percent, bringing our little group to about 400,000,000 people worldwide. That is more than the population of most countries (including the United States of America). Yet like most of them we do not have a leader... we do not have a representative at the united nations, or embassador to convey our interests in world affairs... or any affairs for that matter. When 400,000,000 people cry out, their words become a spiraling hurricane hopes and dreams, roaring out of control like thunder. But when one person is chosen to take the stage, they become a leader; a voice for that ever-booming thunder.

My question to you is this: Who would you choose to speak fo us? Who would you saddle atop that hurricane, and open the door for the future that we have been waiting for?

    I see what you're saying, but at the same time, choosing to not eat meat is not something we have to push for, it's a choice we can all make on our own. We do this for ourselves or to encourage others, this is not us against the world. We need to re-aline to a state of oneness, not a world of leaders and minority. I think the best thing to do is what we're already doing! We just have to keep it up! We're voting every time we go to the grocery store. When we buy organic veggies, we're supporting more farmers who share the same passion for healthy nourishing food! Buying from local farmers markets are even better, we need to support them so that the demand for it is higher, thus raising the continuousness of our planet into healthier living. I think we all have SO much power in just doing that. I like to focus on the bountifulness and all that I have here, and all the friends and family members who are in my life that are just as excited as I am to be a vegan or veggie. That's what it should be about.

    We allready have spiritual people who talks about vegetarianism and help people on the path of peace.
    I don't think we should have a world leader but many leaders in many countries who help people.
    There is a song about your topic. a very beautiful song.
