Vegetarianism isn't about fanatical personal purity; it's about having some perspective. Move at your own pace; no one's keeping score. Vegetarianism isn't about scarcity; it's about abundance. It's not about restriction; it's about liberation. Not about what we're against but what we're for. Not for some far-off time but for right now. For me going vegetarian is less about becoming something and more about being true to ourselves.
