I once ate meat, cheese, drank milk, practically lived off hamburgers. Then I spent 5 minutes using my brain and thinking for myself. I amazingly realized I had no desire to harm anyone, and I realized I wasn't willing to kill anyone. I never knew there was any other choice, because I was just like everybody else. I was shocked by the realization, and admittedly scared to change. But how could I not? Seeing the truth of our extreme cruelty, our global devastation, and our own health? Hubby and I discussed it, researched it, and knew there was only one thing we could do in the face of truth and reality and we both went vegan. 10 years ago now. We can't believe we ever suckled the breast milk of another or ate rotting flesh or bodily secretions. Boy, your head sure clears!!! We would NEVER go back, and find it hard to believe any human with a heart, the ability to think for themselves, and a desire to be informed could possibly choose differently. All the defensive people are simply deeply indoctrinated and unlikely to be able to think objectively about the very factual and intelligent choices that vegans have made - to do their best to not participate in a system that is morally reprehensible. Vegans rising quickly in numbers, as people begin to think for themselves. I love that we live our lives doing the best we can for to cause as little suffering to vulnerable and innocent earthlings possible. Reformed meat-lovers here - 100% vegan and happier than EVER now.
