Subject: My Daughter Went Vegan!
Date: June 23, 2009 at 11:32 am PST

Hi. I've beeen vegan for 17 months now. My two daughters went vegetarian within a few months after I went vegan. Before that I was vegetarian for a few weeks. Before that I was omni. Anyway, last Saturday night, I took the younger of the two (Sarah, 11), who actually went vegetarian before her sister did, to South Beach, FL, for some vegan outreach. I had no expectations of the event, just that it was something I wanted to experience. I told her it would be an unforgettable experience. We got there and from 8:45 till close to midnight, we handed out Why Vegan flyers. The whole time the Meet Your Meat video was playing. Just being there, I felt awed and overwhelmed and amazed. We went with another vegan mom and her vegan daughter. Well, about halfway through the night, Sarah comes up to me and says, "What would you say if I told you I wanted to go vegan?" I told her that would be really great, of course. She said, "That's it; it's official, I'm vegan!" I am just so happy and proud. I just want to tell the world, so that's what I've been doing. Thanks for letting me share. :-)
