I know a while ago I shared I was no longer eating beef. I have decided today to make the decision to become a vegetarian. I will admit it is due to animal welfare, but not because of my relationship with a vegetarian or his famous veggie family. Something indirectly happened to me today which has now made it impossible to eat any kind of meat. I am so appalled and disgusted that just seeing it makes me physically ill. I am not doing it to lose weight or get in shape. I am doing this for the animals. As I was online today I came across a very honest and disturbing video, I would rather not name who was in the video or post a link. It was something that just seriously hit home. Today I joined PETA. And I'm proud that for once I'm thinking about not only what I put in my mouth and what it may do to my body but also what that food represents, where it came from and if the animal that unknowingly gave it's life was worth it. How could I have been blind for so long. I feel so horrible.
Please understand this is a personal decision. I have no ill feeling towards any of you that do eat meat. That is your choice, just how this is now my choice. Everyone needs to find their own path in life and the fork in the road ahead of me has left me with a very important choice in my mind. I choose life in all walks and forms...I don't want any more innocent animals deaths on my conscience personally because I chose to be blindfolded by my own ignorance.
