Committing to Veganism

Becoming a vegan is major decision in a person’s life. It means being committed to an ideal that a greater portion of the world’s population will not see in the same light as you do. Most of us enjoy eating meat and foodstuffs that came from animals but a vegan will never touch anything that has animal ingredients in it, no matter how small the portion is. This idealism is what attracted me to become a vegan when I first encountered it. The first vegan that I got to know personally was a classmate of mine in one of my art subjects in college. His name was Mark and there was nothing remarkable about him when I first saw him. He was just like the rest of us in that class, a young man struggling to finish his education.

When he got up to introduce himself to the class he mentioned that he was a vegan. I had to ask my seat mate what a vegan is. When I was properly informed I was impressed with Mark. I saw him as a person who has the courage to stand up for what he believes in.

I befriended Mark after that and the more I got to know him the more that I was impressed with the courage of his convictions. That admiration was the main cause for my own desire to start practicing veganism. I wanted to know if I could gain a strength of character as strong as his.

It was not an easy journey for me, but I have been able transform my life. I have been a vegan now for more than ten years. Now for me backsliding is a very remote possibility. I believe in animal rights and everything that it stands for and so I know that I will be vegan until the day I die.
