Compassionate Presidential Contender

The two-time Democratic presidential contender Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, is a compassionate vegan, who cares about animals, health and the environment. Therefore, he and his wife are focusing on fund-raising events that do not include any animal products as an example for what they stand.

The world would be a much better place if more leaders in all arenas (political, spiritual, financial, etc.) would stand up for compassion to all creatures and promote a non-violent lifestyle that is very much needed in our violence-plagued world.
