Hello everyone, I'm Lindsey, and I was searching for a new forum when i came across this one. I thought it would be interesting to talk to some fellow vegans and vegeterians, a refreshing change from the over population of meat eaters where I'm from.

I've always had a passion for animals; it truly began when I was about three or so and I stepped on a grasshopper in my backyard. It was completely by accident, but I feltso horrible. Even though I was so young, all I could think about was that grasshopper's mommy looking for him and his family worrying about him (odd, I know).

I'd always wanted to become a vegan, but with a family made predominantly of avid meat eaters, it was next to impossible. My parents pretty much told me that God put animals on this earth for human use, and my beliefs were absolutely absurd. But I wasn't about to let them brainwash me. When I was about twelve I decided to become a vegan, regardless of whether my parents objected. After about a year I realized that just not eating animals wasn't good enough...I had to do more, I had to raise awareness about what happens to these animals. By the time I was 14 I began holding anti-animal abuse rallies and started fund raisers ro raise money for local humane societies.

Heh, I'm sorry for boring you guys with my self-absorbed blabbing. I shall shut up now. ^_^

Anyway, this place seems pretty cool, and I look forward to making some new friends. =]
