In this dramatic monologue Going Vegan, ARASH justifies his reason for choosing a vegan diet and way of living his life.
Arash: I have decided to change my diet to vegan only. It’s not just the animals and environment I’m worried about, it’s also the way humanity acts. I just think it’s getting worse, we are becoming more of a selfish race, more self-obsessed, violent, a lack of care toward one another. I don’t want to be part of that selfish existence, throw my trash wherever, consume heavy amounts of animal product, it’s disgusting.
I know in my heart that it isn’t right. No wonder I get depressed, maybe because I’m part of this culture that is growing worse and worse. I just feel like we live in a world where there is so much violence, so much pain and here we are consuming it.
