Opened my mind after learning more from a vegan I had dated. I finally watched the movie 'Earthlings' and committed to veganism after realizing that it's so wrong not to be, and how it reflects my compassion. Turned vegan cold tofurkey in 10/08

How did you hear about the group? (a friend, Facebook, an invite, Meetup search, etc.)
