I Won't Eat Anything with a Face...

inspirational vegetarian story : I Won't Eat Anything with a Face...By : Fiona Birnie-McKay

As a teenager I was desperate to be a vegetarian but there just wasn't enough alternatives like there are now.

It was only when Linda McCartney's vegetarian range came out in the mid 90's that the opportunity to change to a complete Veggie lifestyle set me on the right track :)

Expecting twins in 1996 my consultant insisted I continue to eat fish for the health of my unborn children. So it was tuna until 15th September 1996 and I've never looked back :)

The thought if eating a living being that once had a face and heartbeat haunts my head with horror. I can no longer even walk past a worm on the pavement without helping it into the safety of the earth...

I feel passionate and proud to be a Vegetarian and that 2 of my 4 children have followed my steps through their own choices :)

The thought of animals suffering at the hands of humans makes me feel sick, I want to help them but can't ......

The more of us who become veggie can help protect and give compassion to them and make for a better world.

PS. If every one of us inspired ONE person to go meatless imagine the difference we could make in ten years time. I am going to collect inspirational vegetarian/vegan stories to share with everyone. If you think your story will inspire others, please share with me by sending it to info@veglov.com. I will post your stories on this www.veglov.com blog. I believe everyone has his/her own story, I think it must be great when we can share our stories and inspire others. Let’s make the world a better place. ~ Xiao Kang.
