Hi everyone, I've been a vegetarian for about three and a half months now and do not plan on ever eating meat again. Right now I'm not sure if I'll go vegan or not but I can say that going vegetarian feels great. I've always liked the environment and animals so I started feeling hypocritical when I would be eating animals. And then after watching a truely inspirational film in a class last year I decided to make the move. Anyway I look forward to contributing to this forum with many questions as I've just began my life as a vegetarian.



Cheers

It was The Witness by Eddie Lama. I higly recommend it if you're ever having doubts about eating meat again.

I think the Peaceable Kingdom documentary was done by the same people. That's what has recently inspired me to take more action about the suffering of animals. Great videos and that's totally cool you were shown The Witness in a classroom setting.

I'll have to look for Peaceable Kingdom at my library. Yeah I saw the Witness in a sociology class last year and it really hit a lot of people. The prof, a huge animals rights person, was balling her eyes out, along with many other girls in the class. Some people had to leave.
