I were 3 Year old when I went Vegetarian, when me parents put meat on me plate she said its a “moo cow” (they are not vegetarian….yet) I cried and threw the plate and refused it, there were NO way me mam or dad would get that down me, they didn’t try, they wouldn’t have succeeded, the love was so strong.
I grew up throwing the food (meat) at teachers and protesting , and I got the cane a lot for it, but I realised then I would rather suffer that pain than the animals, Im not selfish. I got active and sometimes I were violent, sorry, at that age the passion is there along with hormones. I took a lot of damage to myself, mentally and physically. At around 15 year old I realised the truth about dairy, the abuse and sheer agony it entailed to innocent animals and the mockery of their rights as a living entity, luckily I have never eaten cheese, butter (vegan or otherwise) so it were just milk I had to stop, which I did, there and then, I never really noticed as puberty were kicking in, I had more to think about.
I got noticed, Id even done school interviews, I still do interviews occasionally now on facebook when approached. In me late teens, I saw even more a link to animals that I cant explain, I don’t think it needs to be explained, I always had some kind of link, (same as I wouldnt explain any love) I started living in the wild, I’ve seen wolves and never felt threatened and in return neither did they, we were connected, and also sharks when swimming abroad which surprised me mum, I came from the ocean a better person and smiled. From that I got I got a passion for mountain climbing, it were then that I realised at the top of a mountain looking down and around nature, I am nature , they are me, and when I were young it were simply a natural instinct not to change what I were meant to be since birth, the love were so strong. Ive never taken supplements, I’m a songwriter, guitarist, pianist/keyboard player and also act occasionally and always have plenty of energy, as long as one is happy who cares, BIG, ROUND, THIN, SLIM its all a shape to me, I love all. If one believes in perfection of their body then wouldn’t that say there is an imperfect ? Does that include an animal because they are different in appearance ?
I went vegan PURELY for animals, not for me, if fruit and veg were bad for me, Id still be vegan. I don’t analyse what’s on my plate, vitamins, salt, sugar, fat, calories etc, I don’t really care, a happy mind his a healthy body, all vegan food is equally good, I’m too busy eating it.
For me personally there are people on a diet who just so happen to eat what a vegan eats, then there are Vegans, Vegans who strive unselfishly to make a change for the innocents who don’t have the luxuries we take for granted and will sacrifice all they have to make a change for the good, that is the way forward, a chance for all. I will die for them, and never give up until every one is free ♥
