It’s not everyday that you stumble upon some nice badges to represent causes you advocate for. But call it luck or resourcefulness (ehem!) or simply the pulse of the current world we live in that these badges land before your blog’s doorsteps as if they’re meant for you.

But, wait! We’re not simply talking about badges here but a complete package for vegans who are up in arms to spread the V word. To add to that, you’ll be basking in yummy vegan recipes that’ll make you go bananas! It also features a whole bunch of friendly vegan faces that’ll complete your vegan digital soul-searching experience.

So? Are you ready to Represent Vegan? Click the badge below to learn how.

And that, comrades, is how THE social media work.

So as I mentioned earlier, I’m going to weigh in on the Harambe tragedy because, like the rest of the internet, I can. But I will not be slinging deadly stuff on the Cincinnati Zoo and its visitors here. They’ve been beaten up by the interwebs over the past weeks already.

I would simply throw in some insights and leave a picture of Harambe here to remind us all what we as humans have diligently evolved into, arms akimbo.

Lee Hall, author of On their own terms: Animal liberation for the 21st centurywrote: “If we think it appropriate to hold conscious beings in exhibits for ticket holders in the first place, we have already made the assessment that their lives are not as valuable as ours.”

Indeed, one must reflect upon what we have learnt from visiting zoos. Even though, none of these lessons include lifting a finger to assist in habitat conservation for critically-endangered species. But it’s alright to be upset and pour out our contempt over a post or a status update. After all, we have gotten used to expressing all our deep-seated, searchable angst over our newsfeeds, including thoughts that give us nightmares, like whether the dress is blue or gold.

So, now is the time to convert all of these emotions into action, something social media have been urging us to do ever since.

Inside the edifice lurks

a felony in hiding,

but reach deep down

the politics of its pocket,

a wasteland crouches

loathing an earshot away

the brass casket,

a starving sense of justice, asses

and potatoes saddled

over the servants’ wages.

walking down

the aisle

i whimper

condolences to kins

whose bodies

deep in bloodbath

cast me empty

gazes

i pressed

coded ear and

ringed nose on

rancid air to

try to

sniff out

final wistful

words ambient

about today

it seemed

i was bestowed

crimeless verdict

the guillotine

weighed flat

on my shoulders

on my back

on my sirloin

on my chuck

on my thick rib

on my shin

on my fore rib

on my clod

on my brisket

on my rumb

on and on

i tread

on foot

rattling metal

while fatal

macabre faces

welcome

sober paces

ushered into

the chamber

as i watch

hope depart

the assembly line

that freezes

like muted knife

in carnage

enticing what’s left

of sanity

of empathy

of humanity

until what’s left

of me

is where the line

finishes
