My "instant" transformation began after graduating from college.
It was a just another evening, when I sat down to watch, what I thought, was another interesting documentary.
To put it lightly, my eyes were opened, for the first time. This particular film illustrated ,very clearly, the way our world views animals as a commodity. There was no empathy or compassion to be found.
The very next morning, I was "Vegetarian".
It was easier than I thought. Since that time, I have never looked back.
There were challenges, specifically "Kentucky Fried Chicken", but this did not break me.....
At the time, I didn't even realize the positive long-term effect my "new chosen" lifestyle would offer.
Now, I have moved on to the next chapter, Veganism.... let me share all that I have learned with you.
