A young girl who loves animals is the latest child to be featured as part of the “Marvel Hero Project.” In this episode, we meet Genesis, a fierce champion for protecting animals.
Genesis is a young girl who travels the country fighting to protect animals and meeting with US leaders to gather support for her cause. She speaks at protest rallies and advocates a lifestyle that includes veganism and animal shelters.
Genesis tells the viewer that from an early age she had a strong connection to animals and wanted to be their voice. She describes how she came to realize the chicken nuggets she ate as a small child were made from chickens and that pushed her toward a vegan lifestyle because she didn’t want to hurt any animals. From there, she started advocating for programs that provide access to plant-based meals in hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons; putting a stop to animal testing; and banning the dissection of animals in classrooms.
She also started Genesis for Animals, a nonprofit organization that raises money to support animal sanctuaries all over the world. Those sanctuaries house rescue animals, but are very costly to run.
This is the episode I’ve related to the least of the episodes I’ve watched so far. I love animals as much as the next guy, but I’m in no rush to adopt a vegan lifestyle after watching this episode. My wife and I are trying to eat more plant based like Genesis advocates, but we’ve adopted a pescatarian diet because of the nutrients in fish and how it will help us on our health journey. My wife attempted a vegan diet previously and it was difficult to get on board. I, by no means, judge Genesis’s, or anyone else’s, decision to go vegan as it’s their life. But, it was incredibly difficult to relate after already trying and failing at the vegan diet.
However, one aspect of Genesis’s work, I believe, we can all support is her push to help fund animal sanctuaries. There are a lot of animals that need our help, and I think it’s wonderful that she is stepping up in such a positive manner. I think this is the most valuable lesson of this episode. No matter what disagreements we may have on diets, we as a society can work together to form a symbiotic relationship with the animals around us.
Once again, another deserving child is recognized for her hard work. And, we, as viewers, learn more about how we can help those around us.
