Sometimes, an activist, whether for human rights, earth rights or animal rights – thinks
Why do we do what we do? Does it even make a difference?
Even if you can improve someone’s life for one minute, or save the life of one animal or clean one tiny corner of the world, it is adding to all the good in the world, it makes a difference.
It doesn’t just change the world, but it changes us.

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things. But vice versa – the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.
