Come Outside to Play with Us

Come Outside to Play with Us

Haha! Would you like to learn some interesting games that kids from different countries have been playing? Welcome to our show, “Come Outside to Play with Us.” The first game we would like to introduce to you is a traditional game called “Egrang.” To play this game, the participants each need a pair of stilts made with bamboo. The participants then must perform different tasks while using the stilts. Dancing and racing are some of the most common tasks. This game can train the participants to balance, walk gracefully, and build courage. Another one is called rangkuk alu, or tinikling. which is a traditional game played by people in Indonesia, the Philippines, and other countries around the world. It is a form of traditional dance involving two or more people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles on the ground. They compete against each other in coordination with one or more dancers, who step over and in between the poles. There are a lot of benefits to spending time in nature either to play or just hanging out. A study conducted in the UK concluded that after spending time in nature, most children showed improvement with their school work, and became more capable of taking on challenges. As a result, they felt more confident in themselves, and had better relationships with their classmates and teachers. The great scientist, Dr. Albert Einstein, said, “Play is the highest form of research.” Play is the vehicle of children for learning, exploring, developing new skills, and connecting with others. Recent research also indicates that spending time in nature may bring other physical and mental health benefits. Exposure to new environments boosts our immune system, which means we won't get sick as easily. Sunlight provides vitamin D and boosts happiness. By playing outside we can also acquire blessings, along with positive energy from trees, grass, and all the plant life surrounding us. Supreme Master Ching Hai has also mentioned the spiritual blessings we can receive from Nature. “The sun cures your aches and pain, it eliminates toxins through sweat – when it’s hot, you sweat – and also it cures some of the diseases or other ailments. The sun gives benefits to all, bad or good. The sun would glorify the whole Earth that we live on and it gives life to all beings: plants, minerals, animals, etc. The sun gives also people happiness, carefree feeling. The sun is necessary for all on Earth.”

The Happiness Magnets

The Happiness Magnets

What are “happiness magnets” you may wonder. Well, these are the things that can attract happiness into our lives. Have you ever noticed that some people always seem to be happy and lucky, while others always seem miserable, complain about everything, and experience bad luck? Our story today, “The Two Travelers,” will illustrate this effect. Once upon a time, there was a tailor who could make the best clothes in town. Everyone liked him, not only because of his skills, but also because he was always cheerful and willing to help others. The tailor had a neighbor, the shoemaker, who seemed to be the exact opposite. He was never happy. He was always jealous of others, and wore a long, sour face every day. One day, the tailor decided to go to the capital city to find work. Along the way, he met the shoemaker. They resumed their journey across the forest to the capital, where the royal family lived. Some months later, the two bumped into each other in the street. The shoemaker was satisfied that he was doing better than his old neighbor, and did not offer him any assistance. Eventually the tailor’s sewing shop became prosperous. Eventually, the royal family heard of him and appointed him as their royal tailor. When the shoemaker heard the news about his old neighbor, he became discontented. He then told the king blatant lies about him. One day, the king ordered the guards to bring the tailor before him. “Tailor, I order you to find the crown as you have claimed. If you fail, you must leave this city forever.” Thanks to his duck friend, the tailor delivered the crown to the king the very next day. The king ordered the guard to bring the tailor before him once more. “Tailor, I heard that you have claimed that you could make a miniature sculpture of this palace from wax within 24 hours. I order you to prove your claim.” “Worry not, my friend. My family and I will help you.” The next day, the tailor returned to the forest and found a perfect wax miniature of the palace made by the bees. He brought it to the king right away. In the end, the tailor went on to enjoy a prosperous, happy life, while the shoemaker remained miserable, even though they both lived in the same palace. So, you see, our optimism and virtue attract good things into our lives. They are the happiness magnets. This is a beautiful lesson from the story.

Heal the World with Love, Part 2 of 2

Heal the World with Love, Part 2 of 2

Despite all the loss and grief inflicted by the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the world have taken actions to spread joy, strength, and healing where it is most needed. SOS From the Kids, a children’s choir from the United Kingdom, became famous for singing about the climate crisis on Britain’s Got Talent. The choir has been honored with a Shining World Hero Award by Supreme Master Ching Hai. During the lockdown, they recorded another song, “Stand As One” via Zoom for all the healthcare workers on the front lines. The proceeds of this song will be given to NHS Charities Together & “Masks For NHS Heroes.” In British Columbia, Canada, 6-year-old Callaghan McLaughlin set up a “drive-by/walk-by joke stand” at the end of his driveway, offering free laughs to lucky neighbors and passersby. He said, "There's a lot of stress in the world, and I kind of want to get some smiles on people's faces." On top of spreading joy and positivity, many children and teens have held fundraisers and donation events for good causes! Tony Hudgell, a five-year old boy with prosthetic legs from the United Kingdom, has raised more than £1 million for the hospital that saved his life. Despite having both legs amputated, Tony was determined to walk 6 miles (close to 10 kilometers) to fundraise for Evelina London Children’s Hospital for saving his life. He was recognized by Supreme Master Ching Hai as a Shining World Compassionate HERO Award laureate. Four siblings from the Pilkington family in Australia, used their own money to donate gift bags to doctors and nurses. Inside each gift bag, they also put their own loving poem to encourage “Superheroes in Scrubs.” These kids generously share whatever they have with others. What a blessing to have so many angels grace our planet.

Heal the World with Love, Part 1 of 2

Despite all the loss and grief inflicted by the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the world have taken actions to spread joy, strength, and healing where it is most needed. In our two-part show, we want to highlight some of the noble children and teens who have gone above and beyond for the greater good. Two boys from India, Jashith Narang and Ayush Sankaran, took advantage of the precious lockdown time by developing a Smartphone app, called “Climate catastrophe – Earth in Dearth in only seven days.” Users can calculate their carbon footprint based on their daily activities. It also has two games; one is about deforestation and the other is about renewable energy. Their app won an award in the App Inventor Hackathon 2020, held by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Stephen Wamukota, a nine-year-old boy from Kenya, independently built two simple devices from wooden window frames; these contraptions help people wash and sanitize their hands, without worrying about frequently touched surfaces, like faucet handles and soap dispensers. His invention won him the Presidential Order of Service, Uzalendo (Patriotic) Award from His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta. A 12-year-old boy from San Francisco, USA named Mizan Rupan-Tompkins invented a smart tool to help people avoid germs. He was inspired with the idea when he noticed his parents were struggling to open doors using their sleeves. He used a 3-D printer to make hook-like devices called, “Safe Touch Pro” in order to minimize interacting with high-touch-surfaces. High-touch-surfaces are objects people interact with frequently to get around, such as door handles, elevator buttons, and ATMs! A 13-year old Canadian boy named Warren Richmond made face shields for health care workers. My young friends, what’s a good deed that you plan to do? What can we do with our “Two Hands”?

Vegan Kids Got Talent! Part 1 of 2

Today is Part 1 of Vegan Kids Got Talent! We are delighted to present you with incredible talents from Indonesia, Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam, and California, USA. Traveling now to the beautiful nation of Indonesia, we have a teenage singer named Kentdy, singing a traditional Batak song called, “Alusi Au.” “We humans have various ideals The expectations of each person are so different. Wealth, success, and dignity are what some people are searching for. For others, fame is the most important thing. My ideals are a bit different from others, so are my hopes. Even though it is kind of silly, please do not make fun of me. Everything that I just mentioned, I achieved none. My ideals are very different from others. It’s really your love that I aspire for. It’s really your friendliness that I yearn for. You’re compassionate, dear, please don’t let me down. How does your heart feel? Please tell me, answer me.” In Âu Lạc , also known as Vietnam, some vegan friends put together a fun dance! Let’s watch! We have one more talented vegan to meet for this episode. She is a teenager from California, USA! Let’s sit back and enjoy Jessica’s performance. “I love writing and my teachers always say that I'm very passionate about what I write and I'm very articulate (with) my words. I normally write about pressing matters such as climate change, and movements that are going on.” “Being vegan will solve so many problems that this world has. The world I dream of is a vegan world where there's no discrimination based on color, ethnicity, or the way you talk. My dream world is somewhere where animals are free to go wherever they want to. And for every kid to have the equal opportunity to excel in school and into anything that they put their hearts to.”

The Girl Who Listens to Her Heart

00:12:16

The Girl Who Listens to Her Heart

The tale begins with a young Ethiopian girl named Aida. After her father passed away, her mother was always busy working and caring for the family’s basket weaving business. This left Aida and her sister Fana to take care of all the housework. However, Fana didn’t like to do chores and refused to help. She only cared about her beauty and was too preoccupied with looking at herself. Aida then took on the responsibility of cleaning and cooking for the family. She helped her mother weave baskets in her free time too. One day Aida finished her housework early, and went to the roof of the house to work on a beautifully woven basket with colorful threads. But suddenly, a gust of wind blew her basket off the roof and into a neighbor’s yard! "My father’s basket! I must go and find it!" "Please pardon my intrusion Āyatē, my basket fell from my roof and into your garden and I would like to retrieve it, if you don’t mind." "You may get your basket if you do some chores for me." Aida was not afraid of hard work, and she was happy to help the old woman. The old woman took her into the kitchen. …Aida did what the old woman told her and was given back the basket at the end. When she got home, she was very worried that her mother would be angry that she was late. But Fana and her mother didn’t know who the beautiful girl at the door was! "It’s me! Aida. Why don’t you recognize me?" "Aida?! How have you become so beautiful?" After Aida told them about the old woman and everything she was asked to do, Fana was eager to become beautiful too. She decided to go and do the same. She went home excited and knocked at the door. "Who are you? How can we help you?" "Mother, it’s me!" "Why are you so ugly? What did you do?" "Mother, I did all of it! I destroyed the kitchen, uprooted the garden, and I cut off all the hair of the old woman, exactly like I was told to do." "Aida! Can you explain this?" "I am sorry, Fana. That Āyatē did ask me to destroy her kitchen and garden and also to cut her hair - but I didn’t do those things. I listened to my heart instead, and I did what I believed was the right thing to do." Years later, after the old woman died, some people in the village plunged themselves in the pools and discovered the secret. It turned out that the pools made a person look on the outside the way they were on the inside. They remembered Aida – the girl who listened and understood the hearts of others. She showed her loving kindness and cared for those in need. Aida’s true beauty shines from within.

Billie Eilish, Vegan Musical Prodigy

“I am Billie Eilish, from Los Angeles.” Billie is a multi-talented musical genius from the United States. The 2019 Grammy awards were a revelation for Billie, as she took home 5 Grammys including Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. She became the youngest artist to ever be nominated in all four main Grammy categories in the same year, and also won them all! Her Brother Finneas also won the Grammy for Producer of the Year. They both have a long list of awards for their studio album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” including ones from the American Music Awards, MTV, GAFFA awards, and many others. At the American Music Awards, Billie wore a t-shirt that said, “No Music On A Dead Planet,” showing her support and solidarity to combat and solve the climate change crisis. Billie and her family also adopted the vegan diet! Their mother, Maggie Baird, raised both Billie and Finneas on a vegetarian diet. In 2014, the entire family became vegan, out of compassion for our animal co-inhabitants. Not only did it help their conscience, the entire family saw immediate improvements in their health. Billie frequently uses both her talent and her wide-reaching voice to support noble causes. She joined Lady Gaga to perform at the One World: Together at Home concert, which promoted social distancing, and raised US$128 million for coronavirus healthcare workers. Billie and Finneas also played a concert on Pay It Forward Live, by Verizon to raise money for Support and Feed. Support and Feed was started by their mom Maggie, in order to support vegan restaurants by buying food from vegan vendors, and donating it to those in need. We hope you have learned something about the talented young musician Billie Eilish, her passion for music, as well as her compassion for the planet.

Vegans Are Cool, Part 1

Vegans Are Cool, Part 1

Welcome to “Vegans Are Cool” where we proudly present some of our young Association members and friends from around the world. These multi-talented kids demonstrate what it means to follow a loving vegan lifestyle while pursuing their passions. A vegan lifestyle is one that doesn't involve eating and using animal products. These youth are compassionate, heroic, smart, and cool. They are role models of peace and love. First, we are traveling to meet two young vibrant vegans, Juanita and Angelina, in the beautiful city of Brisbane, Australia. ‟Hi, I'm Juanita and I'm 12 years old. I've been vegan since birth. Yes, her name is Lucky. And she's a dog. She surfs. I noticed when Lucky sleeps with me, I only have good dreams. I don't eat meat because I care for the animals, and they have feelings too.” One of Juanita's hobbies is poetry and she has written this beautiful poem about dolphins. Our next talented guest is from Hong Kong. ‟My name is Oliver. I'm 8 years old. Animals are our friends; we shouldn't hurt them. They are just different from us, like skin colors. For example, horses, they sleep while standing, they are living beings. But some of them won't grow up because people kill and eat them." Just like his mother, Oliver also enjoys practicing yoga and baking vegan cupcakes! Next up, we are meeting up with compassionate 11-year-old Seung-hyeon from Jeonju, Korea. ‟I thought it wasn't right to eat meat after watching a meat processing clip on Supreme Master TV. I don't think my friends know that a meat diet is crueler than we thought. When I eat a lunch box at school, my friends want to eat my lunch box rather than the school lunch, and they say the veggie meat is more delicious.”

The Lorax - The Environment Protector

00:13:04

The Lorax - The Environment Protector

“The Lorax” was written by one of the most well-known American children’s book authors. Since its publication in 1971, “The Lorax” has been named as one of “Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children” and one of the “Top 100 Picture Books” by the School Library Journal. In “The Lorax,” that dull and filthy area used to be a beautiful place, filled with fresh air, green grasses, and lots of colorful Truffula Trees. Many animals used to play happily in this earthly paradise. But everything changed after the arrival of one person, Once-ler. With an axe, one swing was all it took for the tree to fall down. On the freshly cut-stump, a man came out. Once-ler couldn’t wait to use the soft tuft, and knitted a Thneed, while talking to this strange man. The Thneeds became more and more popular, and more people came to buy it. Even railroads were built. Tree after tree, Once-ler’s business grew bigger and bigger. The Lorax kept asking Once-ler to stop chopping down trees. “I am going to continue to speak for the trees.” Sadly, Once-ler wouldn’t listen to him. Eventually, there were no more trees left. Along with them, gone were the clean air, fresh water, fruits and plants, and the animals who lived on them. At the end of the story, the Lorax departed the dark and lifeless place in despair; however, he left something behind, a pile of rocks placed to spell out the word “UNLESS,” which puzzled Once-ler for a long time. But he figured it out one day after talking to a boy. “Because UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Once-ler threw a seed at the boy and told him to plant the last Truffula seed. Every one of us can be like that boy, to start caring about the environment, to start growing things, and to be a protector of nature. We can stop eating meat, so that trees wouldn’t need to be cut down for raising animals; we can use recycled paper for crafts, we can use a cloth towel instead of paper towels, so that less trees will be cut down to make them. There are many ways to save, recycle and reuse natural resources. Many children around the world have been taking actions to plant trees and protect the environment. You are welcome to join too!

Good Habits of Cleanliness

00:14:01

Good Habits of Cleanliness

That’s right, when we sneeze or cough, we should always cover our mouth, or sneeze and cough into our sleeve. This will prevent our friends from getting ill. That’s the first tip of cleanliness. You should also make it a habit of washing your hands when you enter your home to prevent spreading germs that you may have come into contact when you were outside. This will also help to protect your family and friends from getting sick. 1) Wet your hands 2) Lather with soap 3) Rub your fingers 4) Rub your knuckles 5) Scrub your fingernails 6) Lather for at least 20 secs 7) Rinse your hands 8) Dry your hands. We have to be careful of each step, so that your hands will be free from germs. But sometimes washing hands is not enough. After a day out and about, going to school, or running around, we can get really dirty and smelly! What should we do? That brings us to tip number three, which is… taking a bath or shower. The fourth thing we should do is brush our teeth in the morning, in the evening, and after each meal. Supreme Master Ching Hai has shared these useful tips on how to brush our teeth properly. “Brush carefully, or teeth will decay. Not like this. This way. And brush your tongue as well. Since we are talking about tooth-brushing, let me tell you one more secret. Don’t use too much toothpaste.” Keeping our environment clean is the next essential step. Our living spaces include our bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and our work areas. When we walk into a clean and tidy room, we feel peaceful and calm, while stepping into a messy room can make us feel agitated, right? We are affected by our environment, and our environment is a reflection of us. Supreme Master Ching Hai explains more. “My work, you see how I take care of the environment. That gives you the idea, okay? That's how you learn to live your life, the way you want. But it's just an example of beauty and cleanliness. Because that represents Godliness within you. That represents Heaven.” Lastly, when there are too many unhealthy viruses, like COVID-19, flying around, we have to do something extraordinary to stop it from spreading, by wearing masks when going outside. Remember friends, the six good habits of cleanliness, 1) cover ourselves when sneezing or coughing, 2) wash our hands with soap, 3) take frequent baths or showers, 4) brush our teeth, 5) keep our environment clean, and 6) wear a mask when necessary. Let’s keep ourselves and our living spaces clean and beautiful. If everyone will do it, we might just turn the whole world into a clean and beautiful place!

Anna and Her Animal Friends

00:13:51

Anna and Her Animal Friends

Today, we have a story about a 6-year-old girl named Anna and an adventure that changed her life. Anna followed the animals to a large fig tree. As everyone held hands, Gloria Rabbit clapped twice and commanded, “The Garden of Eden opens! The Garden of Eden opens!” Lo and behold, an opening appeared at the base of the fig tree. Anna could see a tunnel path beyond it. Multi-colored lights shone brightly as they trekked their way through the tunnel, and out to a beautiful garden covered with giant trees, exotic plants, and wild flowers. A huge rainbow arched across the entire garden, sending out brilliant rays of colors. “So beautiful! This is like Heaven!” As Anna was absorbing all the wonders in this magical place, a carpet flew over her, and hovered in the air. Gloria Rabbit helped Anna aboard. Together, they went for a ride through the entire garden. It was magnificent! Anna saw many things that she had never seen before, such as a bright blue tomato patch, pumpkins bigger than herself, and rainbow-colored radishes. Eventually, they stopped in front of a cozy cabin where a group of animals awaited. “I am Tom Turkey, the best chef in the Garden. Come Anna, I have prepared a nutritious vegan meal. Please join us.” “What’s vegan food?” “Vegan foods are purely plant-based. It’s food that doesn’t contain any meat from animals.” “We are all vegans here, Anna. We don’t eat our friends.” All the animals sat around a big wooden table outside, and enjoyed Tom Turkey’s delicious feast. There were vegan breads, multicolored plant-based jelly, all sorts of nuts, and an herb and fruit salad. Anna’s favorite was the blue tomato juice. “We are delighted to have you here in the Garden of Eden, Anna. Please take care. See you soon!” One moment Anna was in the Garden of Eden, and the next instant she was back sitting by the fig tree. Her mother, Hong, was looking for her. “Anna, where have you been? It’s almost lunch time. Let’s go in.” As soon as they stepped into the kitchen, Anna saw Uncle Tom Turkey tied up on the counter, struggling. “Help, help!” “Please let the turkey go! He’s my friend. His name is Tom, and he is a great vegan cook. Let him go! We don’t need to eat him or other animals.” “Anna! What is the matter with you?” “I don’t want to eat my animal friends. Please don’t ever serve me meat again.” “But if you don’t eat meat, how will you have enough nutrition to grow big and strong?” “I can still grow big and strong. Gloria Rabbit, Tom Turkey, and other animal friends have shown me just how wonderful plant-based foods are. And how can I face my animal friends in the Garden of Eden again if I eat them as food?”

Bob Love - Be An Open Positive Vegan

Today we are meeting with Bob Love, owner of the vegan online store “ETHCS,” and YouTuber from London. His YouTube channel is called, “Family Freedom,” and it features his plant-based family going on all sorts of adventures! Together with his wife Katie, and their three children, JoJo, Jamie, and Sam, Bob has travelled all over the world to places like Miami and Paris, while enjoying delicious regional vegan foods in the process. Bob and his family work together to find delicious vegan food wherever they go! “We didn’t have many challenges in the foods or adopting the lifestyle. It’s more with the people. I find that you expect people to adopt it and receive it in the same way that you did. We thought people like our friends and family, they’re going to get it, but they didn’t.” “I think you have to recognize that you don’t need them to accept it. If they are your friends and family, and you’re just simply letting them know a change you’re doing in your life, and it doesn’t have to affect them.” Bob highly recommends using websites and documentaries, in order to help those close to you, understand why you have made the decision to be vegan. “If there are other people who are vegan, connect with them. Whether you can, in real life go out together, or online in forums, do that because it’s like a support forum with each other.” “Not only be positive in the way we communicate, but be a positive example. Keep yourself healthy, so that’s a good example to them. Be happy as well. As long as you’re positive, you’re eating good food, you’re showing off good aspects of the lifestyle, creating a persona which they can essentially be attracted by and want to adopt that lifestyle.”

Vegan Actor, Musician and Environmental Activist - Aidan Gallagher

There are so many troubling issues currently plaguing our planet today, such as global pandemics, impacts from climate change, environmental destruction, and animal extinctions. That’s why so many of them are rising up and getting their message out to the world. We are so excited to introduce another such hero, 17-year-old Aidan Gallagher, an American actor, singer, and songwriter. On top of being a brilliant artist, Aidan is at the forefront of championing environmental protection. After researching on his own, he became aware of the environmental and ethical aspects of meat consumption. After joining in with his family on Meatless Mondays, he eventually transitioned to a healthy plant-based diet. On his dietary choice, Aidan tweeted in March 2019, “I was not always Vegan. I started 4 years ago for the environment. As the leading cause of climate change I decided I had to lead by example.” In September 2018, Aidan discussed climate change impacts during the Global Climate Summit, hosted in San Francisco, USA. “I am honored to be here representing our world’s youth, who will be affected the most by climate change. We are all here because we value life, not only human life, but the lives of millions of species with which we share this world.” For our planet and for our animal friends, we hope everyone, young and old, can join Aidan in transitioning to the vegan diet, which is the easiest and the most effective way to make a positive change.

Jonah and the Whale

00:13:05

Jonah and the Whale

Today, we will start with a story taken from the Book of Jonah. It is a book of the Nevi’im (Prophets), in the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible as well as in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. The main character of the story is Jonah, who was an Israelite. Because of his pure and kind heart, God also trusted him and asked him to carry out Hiers work. “Jonah, the people of the great city of Nineveh have been living immorally. I want you to go there and preach to them, and instill goodness into their hearts. They must obey My Words and repent for their sins.” After listening to his assignment from God, Jonah left town. Do you know where he went? Instead of heading to Nineveh, he packed up and set off for the city of Joppa, in the opposite direction of Nineveh. At sea, while Jonah was sound asleep below the deck, a big storm broke out. The ship was rocked back and forth by the storm. The lives of all the passengers were in grave danger. At that moment, Jonah realized that by going against the will of God and running away from his destiny, he had brought on the storm and put others in danger. To everyone’s amazement, as soon as Jonah fell into the sea, the storm ceased. A large whale swam by and swallowed him up whole! Jonah stayed alive in the whale’s belly. Filled with gratitude and regret, Jonah prayed to God for forgiveness for three days and three nights. As God is merciful and loving, He readily forgave Jonah. Soon the big whale had indigestion and spit Jonah out onto dry land. Jonah cleaned himself up, and headed straight for Nineveh. Standing in the middle of the town square, he began preaching. Jonah brought God’s message to the people of Nineveh, and awakened them from their slumber. Many of them examined their own hearts, repented, and mended their past mistakes. Even the king asked Jonah how he could change so that he can set a good example for his people. Under Jonah’s patient guidance, Nineveh was transformed into a peaceful, loving community. With his mission accomplished, Jonah left the city. In spite of all of this, his heart was not at ease. “What troubles you, Jonah?” “My Lord, I trust Your wisdom and judgement. But I can’t forget how my people suffered because of what the people of Nineveh did to us. This is not fair. They should be punished for their wrongdoings.” “Jonah, the people of Nineveh were ignorant of their inner divinity. After heeding My message, didn’t they repent with all sincerity, and change for the better? They are now My people, and your brothers and sisters. I love all My children equally.” We saw that God is always forgiving and loving. What else did we learn? Hmm, we should listen to God’s words, and forgive others like God forgives us. And we should live a virtuous life. If we do something wrong, then we should repent and change for the better.

King Zoom (vegan): Working For A Compassionate Future, Part 2 of 2

King Zoom (vegan): Working For A Compassionate Future, Part 2 of 2

“It took me a long time to get the courage to speak in front of an audience of strangers. But my mom taught me that the only way to deal with the fear is to face the fear. So I did. And I am here today to share a message. My message is honestly to stop exploiting animals. But I have a bigger message and that is to step out of your comfort zone and get active, not just today but every day you see injustice.” King Zoom’s mom must be a very kind and wise lady. Yes, she is. Because of her love for King Zoom, Ms. Walters authored two books, “King Zoom and the Great Seal Pup Rescue” and “King Zoom the Vegan Kid: Animals Used for Food.” King Zoom pointed out other helpful ideas in the book as well. “That’s a great [thing] if you’re stressed about animals or what’s going on and you’re sad about all of that. You can start meditating or even have some tea or here, [think of it] join a vegan support group, too. Well, it says on here eat healthy food, keep active and visit the sanctuary.” “Being a vegan is much more than eating a plant-based diet. Veganism is a social justice movement of our time. It means understanding that there are systems in place that oppress animals and humans and we must work together to end all oppression. So, I’m asking you today, if you’re not have already, to stop eating animals, stop wearing animals, stop using animals for entertainment, and stop using animals in experiments. Secondly, open your heart, speak out, write to your government, sign petitions, leaflets, march like we did today. Protest, boycott, bake, dance, sing, and join together to change our world. We will be the generation that liberates the animals!” “[It] feels good in my heart to help people and animals. So, I’ve been doing that from a very young age; so, yeah, I’ve been doing that all my life.”

King Zoom (vegan): Working For A Compassionate Future, Part 1 of 2

King’s real name is Kingston Walters. Born and raised vegan, King Zoom has demonstrated exceptional compassion and altruistic actions. He began early in life by asking his parents to donate money to aid disaster victims instead of buying him birthday presents. The 15 year old has already joined many animal rights protests as well as spoken to the public about veganism and why we should be kind to our animal friends. “The kids are the younger generation; I wanted to start something; I was always inspired by other people and I always wanted to join a protest and start my speaking. Number one, I am vegan because animals have feelings and families like you and me, and I don’t want them to be tortured and killed. I don’t believe that humans have the right to take the life of another, just because they are a different species. This is call speciesism. Can everyone say spe-cies-i-sm. Number two, I am vegan because our environment depends on it. The animal agriculture industry is responsible for climate change, air and water pollution, species loss and deforestation. Number three, I’m vegan because eating a plant-based diet is healthy, and the food is so delicious, am I right? Besides, eating animals is linked to heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. Number four, animal agriculture is responsible for environmental racism. Low-income and communities of color are most affected by toxic chemicals seeping from the factories.” “I helped the houseless people of the downtown eastside last year. This year I went to the downtown eastside Women Centre to give out goodies as I brought a bunch of lemon pound cake and vegan banana bread and that was pretty cool and they love that.” “Oh, one time, I was at the Vancouver Aquarium here in Vancouver and there was this bunch of families who wanted to go to the Aquarium, but they just ripped out their passes, ripped out their season passes and just joined the protest; that was pretty cool.” Did you know King Zoom also creates cooking shows? Let’s watch a video of King Zoom making a vegan sushi bowl!

Avatar: The Last Airbender

Avatar: The Last Airbender

Today, we are delighted to introduce to you an outstanding American TV series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. It’s an award-winning animated children’s show which aired on the US TV channel Nickelodeon beginning in February 2005 and lasted three seasons until July 2008. Created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, a writer for Forbes magazine called it one of the best shows of all time. It has been released in more than 105 countries, and translated into many languages. The setting of the story occurs in an imagined land where people are divided into four nations based on their affinity with the four natural elements: Water, Earth, Fire, and Air. The central figure is a special 12-year-old boy named Aang, who is a spiritual monk and vegetarian. Born in the Air Nation and being the last survivor of his kind, Aang is the reincarnation of the “Avatar,” the only person who has the ability to control or “bend” all four elements. He is destined to restore peace and balance to the world. Accompanied by his friends and the loyal bison Appa, Aang travelled to many lands with different cultures to fulfill his destiny. Along the way, he studied with many teachers, encounters many trials and tribulations, and grows to understand what it means to be an Avatar. What makes Aang special is that he always tries to seek peaceful solutions to conflicts. Being a vegetarian, he extends love and compassion to all beings, even to the so-called enemies. That is what eventually brings peace to the world. Being an Avatar, he needed to first become master of himself, maintain peace among the four nations and serve as a mediator between the humans and spirits. Combining spiritual teachings with all the cool bending elements and martial arts, Avatar: The Last Airbender is a show you don’t want to miss!

Our Fabulous Solar System, Part 2 of 2

Our Fabulous Solar System, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will continue to explore our Solar System, along with the remaining planets, and Pluto. Let’s begin where we left off, Jupiter, the fifth planet from the Sun. “I am the largest planet in the Solar System. I have mystical, swirling stripes made of cold, windy clouds of water and ammonia. My atmosphere is composed of hydrogen and helium. Do you see the red spot on me? It’s actually a giant storm that has lasted for hundreds of years. I am known for having 79 moons.” “Hi, I’m Saturn, named after the Roman god of wealth and agriculture. I am the farthest planet from Earth that can be seen without a telescope. My most famous features are my ever so beautiful rings, which are made up of ice, rock, and dust, and also my biggest moon, Titan, which is larger than the planet Mercury.” “I’m famous for rotating on my side. I am 4 times bigger than Earth. This is my sign. My name is the same as the Greek god of the sky. It rains diamonds on me. Yes, I am Uranus, the seventh planet from the Sun. I am an ice giant.” “Hi, everyone. I am Neptune, the densest, and most gaseous planet in the entire Solar System. It’s my greenish-blue color that inspired astronomers to give me the name of the Roman god of the sea. I have six rings and 14 moons. It takes me 165 years to complete one lap around the Sun. Fun fact! I was the first planet whose existence was predicted by mathematical calculations before being spotted with a telescope.” “Hallo, everyone. I am Pluto. Technically, I am not a planet, because I share my orbit with other icy bodies, but I am glad to be here.” “Right now, we are all very concerned about the current state of planet Earth. Because of the animal livestock industry, the environment on Earth is seriously damaged. There is a shortage of water and other natural resources.” “We hope for an urgent transition to the organic vegan way by the earthlings, which will save lives, animal and human, and conserve water.”
