As of April 5, 2010, I made the life-changing decision to become vegan. Many people thought I was crazy. Even friends. I never understood this though, as my choice affected not them, but the billions of animals that are viewed as property and “things” rather than living, breathing, sentient beings that deserve more from life than a cage the size of a sheet of computer paper, only to be maimed and slaughtered alive. I’m not naive. I know that I alone can not save every animal. I am however helping to end the norm of animal exploitation in our society by taking a stand and protesting against the disgusting industry we know as animal agriculture. All by being Vegan.
Changing the way our society looks at our fellow animals is an important step towards making real change. This blog will not be this serious all the time. I want it to be a declaration, a cookbook, a forum, whatever it becomes. This is my life, as The New Vegan.
