yes, i see that your letter was posted 3 years ago, but just in case you do check in, i wanted to make sure i was heard. :) ive been a vegetarian for over a year and a half and just a few days ago, i decided that i wanted to go vegan. its not too tough however, ive come to believe. it is difficult when it comes to eating out but ive realized what i have been doing to my body with eggs and dairy products and how being a vegetarian isnt enough so it doesnt matter to me anymore. besides...its not too hard to find alternatives at restaurants, you just have to play with the menu a bit...and its not like they are gunna say no. :) so anyway...im 17 and about to go into my senior year of high school. very exciting, i know. :) none of my friends ever really supported me being a vegetarian with their occasional teasing like "oh yea...u dont eat THAT" or the "gosh, its so difficult to pick dinner when ur over" and blah blah so im not surprised that they all think im nuts to go vegan. but there are so many supportive people on line, that it hardly matters to me. i did manage to inspire one of my friends to become a vegetarian, however. :) but she said she would never go vegan...but hey...i used to say that too so maybe she will come around and join me someday. :) anyway, you now have my email address so im hoping that this reaches you and that maybe we can help eachother cuz hopefully u are now 3 years into your veganism and i am only beginning. hope to talk to you soon and God Bless! <33 *amanda*
