It's like I had been walking around with my blinders on, unable to see the cruelty around me. A girl in my class recommended everyone go to kentuckyfriedcruelty.com to learn more. That evening I had sushi for dinner, which was a mix of fish and vegetables. I regretted eating it part way through and stopped. I couldn't eat another animal product. I told him that I was going vegan. I started reading books on eating a healthy diet. These books consisted of "Skinny Bitch", "The Kind Diet" and "Vegan Freak". I also watched films such as "Earthlings", "Food Matters" and "Fast Food Nation". While I watched these films I had my guinea pig in my lap, Whenever an animal would scream, she would bury her face into me. My heart was broken, and I knew I was doing the right thing for myself, the animals and the planet.
