Subject: BECOMING VEGAN HAS BEEN A GREAT CHOSE!
Date: June 19, 2003 at 9:39 pm PST

I WAS A MEAT EATER ALL MY LIFE. THROUGH OUT MY LIFE THERE WOULD BE MOMMENTS WHERE IT BOTHERED ME THAT I WAS EATING SOMETHING THAT USE TO BE A INNOCENT LIVING CREATURE. I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT BECOMING A VEGAB BECAUSE OF ALL THE NEGATIVE IMPUT I GOT, INPUT SUCH AS: POOR NUTRITION OR THAT BEING VEGAN IS NONSENSE AND IT MAKES THE PERSON A PUNK. IT JUST KEPT BOTHERING ME MORE AND MORE, BECAUSE I'M SUCH A BIG ANIMAL LOVER AND I'M A VERY PEACEFUL PERSON. SO I BEGAN DOING RESEARCH AND IT WAS A CHALLENGE AT FIRST BEACAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO EAT AND I HAD NO SUPPORT AT ALL, JUST THE NEGATIVETY. I HAVE NO VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN FAMILY MEMBERS OR FRIENDS, BUT I STUCK WITH IT. I PUT A LOT OF FAITH IN JESUS AND IN MYSELF, BECAUSE IT JUST TEARS ME UP JUST TO THINK OR SEE AN ANIMAL OR PERSON BEING MISTREATED. SO I FINALLY MADE THE TRANSITION. I WAS A VEGETARIAN FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND I'VE BEENA VEGAN FOR ABOUT 2 MONTHS. I VALUE AND RESPECT THE EARTH AND LIFE SO MUCH MORE! I'VE LEARNED A LOT, BUT THERE'S STILL I NEED TO LEARN. I STILL GET NEAGATIVE FEEDBACK, BUT I STAY POSITIVE SO THAT MAYBE I CAN BE AN EXAMPLE FOR THOSE PEOPLE. IT'S FUNNY THOUGH BECAUSE SINCE I BECAME VEGETARIAN MY FAMILY IS MORE AWARE OF WHAT THEY'RE EATING AND EVEN CUT BACK ON CERTAIN MEAT PRODUCTS. I PLAN TO GO TO COLLEGE AND TAKE UP SOME KIND OF MAJOR IN HELPING ANIMALS OR PEOPLE. I HAVE TO THANK GOD FOR GETTING ME THIS FAR! I ALSO HAVE TO THANK ALL THE PEOPLE OUT THERE TRYING TO MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFEENCE. I HOPE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE ALSO, EVEN IF IT'S JUST BY ME BEING VEGAN! I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER ABOUT MY BODY AND LIFESTYLE! FOR ANYONE WHO READS ALL THIS, IF YOU'RE A VEGETARIAN OR A VEGAN: STAY STRONG, STAY POSITIVE AND TRUST GOD-BECAUSE YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE. IF YOU'RE NOT EITHER THEN I HOPE MY STORY AND OTHER STORIES WILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO LIVE A VEGGIE LIFESTYLE - FOR THE SAKE OF HUMANITY AND HEALTH!
