I just had my 2 years of being vegan at the end of February (2/27) and yesterday (3/15) was the anniversary of when I went vegetarian back in 1989.<br><br><br><br>
Folks, that was 18 years ago!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hamster.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hamster:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:"><br><br>
I've never looked back and don't think I ever could.<br><br><br><br>
Cheers! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/iloveyou.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lovesign:"></span>

Congratulations! I think the rock group Boston made some public statements supporting animals and vegetarianism, although Im not sure. But this song fits, anyway. I copied these lyrics from <a href="http://Www.poemhunter.com" target="_blank">Www.poemhunter.com</a><br><br><br><br>
Rock on, dude!<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Don't Look Back (Tom Sholz)<br><br>
\t<br><br><br><br>
\tDont look back<br><br>
A new day is breakin<br><br>
Its been too long since I felt this way<br><br>
I dont mind where I get taken<br><br>
The road is callin<br><br>
Today is the day<br><br><br><br>
I can see<br><br>
It took so long to realize<br><br>
Im much too strong<br><br>
Not to comprimise<br><br>
Now I see what I am is holding me down<br><br>
Ill turn it around<br><br><br><br>
I finally see the dawn arrivin<br><br>
I see beyond the road Im drivin<br><br>
Far away and left behind<br><br><br><br>
Its a new horizon and Im awakin now<br><br>
Oh I see myself in a brand new way<br><br>
The sun is shinin<br><br>
The clouds are breakin<br><br>
canse I cant lose now, theres no game to play<br><br><br><br>
I can tell<br><br>
Theres no more time left to criticize<br><br>
Ive seen what I could not recognize<br><br>
Everthing in my life was leading me on<br><br>
But I can be strong<br><br><br><br>
I finally see the dawn arrivin<br><br>
I see beyond the road Im drivin<br><br>
Far away and left behind

I read in a story about the Boston lead singer, when he died a few days ago, that he was indeed a vegetarian.

<br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> That reminds me of one of my astronomy classes. My friend told another girl that I had gone veggie and she came over to me and started lecturing me about how bad it was and that I was shortening my life etc My astronomy teacher came over and said "veggie is the way to go!" I asked if he was veggie and the reply was: "I've been a vegetarian for 38 years and I'm still alive." Shocked silence from the rest of the class <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

1989 - that is a <span style="text-decoration:underline;">very</span> long time ago. So that means you were only 15 when you went vegetarian? Admirable.
