I have read a few of the previous posts and have to say I agree with them. I am 37 and just recently became a vegetarian. I had always kicked the idea around but was just never able to start. The thing that did it for me was the Pilgrams Pride and Kentucky Fried chicken incident. I was sickened enough by that to jump in head first and not look back. I am a full time firefighter in a major city and I agree that my decision is not very popular with the people I work with. They joke and make fun and it hurts a little but I feel they just dont understand all of the issues. I try to explain without preaching but that just goes so far!! When I am not at the fire station I work part time driving a tractor trailer over the road. (our two big accounts are Tyson and Con agra foods) I have some guilt associated with this since I became vegetarian but am working it out. I would like to get together by E-mail with other vegetarians. I am not sure I know anyone else that is. It would be nice to talk and share ideas and support with others!! Thanks.
