Is the "bears" a basket ball team?
If so, I think i heard of them before
but I am not really into sports, as you prolly gathered and as you are probably on the floor laughing at me right now.
anyway, I am so happy to hear that you have given up eating animals. YOU are still a new vegeatrian, so you may have times when you want to give up and revert back to meat, Please dont ever do that. Your own health, the animals, and the environment will all lose if you do, and it will be one sad day. Your vegetarianism, and hopefully soon veganism, will be one of the proudest accomplishments of your life, trust me, as a former DIE HARD carnivore, I know what i am talking about. if you ever feel like you are going to regress (because that is exactly what it would be), come on these boards and look for support and inspiration. We are here for you and are thrilled to have you among us!!
You will reap the health benefits of this diet soon, trust me, not to mention the good 'karma" or the like that you will be racking up in sparing animals lives. Just one
vegan person saves the lives of almost 100 innocent animals
a year by just being vegan!!! if it is true what they say about reaping what you sow in this lifetime, surely you will yourself be treated with the mercy and compassion you have chosen to show onto other sentient creatures.
So congrats and wlecome. I hope your awareness of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle for your health, for animals, and for the environment continue to grow stronger with each passing day.
And thanks again for choosing compassion over suffering and death.
You will love it here. It is pretty addictive and filled with awesome, inspirational people.
