Your video is great. I decided to become vegan a year ago and I’ve been dealing with all the comments people make, especially my family. The video is very informative and helped a lot. I have friends in Mexico who would love to see this video and share it with other friends. I would also like to share it with the rest of my family but their english is not good. I will appreciate it if I can get a link to the spanish version. I would like all my loved one to understand the importance of becoming vegan.

I’m from Israel. Yesterday I watched the your famous speech I heard so much about. It was really a life changing speech. I’ve lived my whole life up until now (30 yrs) as a dairy, eggs and meat consumer. Now i’m gradually decreasing these amounts to none in order to cause as less damage to the environment and living beings I wanted to thank you for opening my eyes. I’m intending to pass it on to as many people I can!

I’ve recently started being a vegan. I would like to thank you for your impact on my decision. Your lecture is one of the best I’ve seen and it is structured well to provide all the information I’ve needed.

Your lecture is the most amazing lecture I have ever heard. It opened my eyes and threw all the truth in the face. I showed my parents the lecture also and it pushed them to eat without cruelty. They went vegetarian. Of course I changed my eating habits, too. I love animals, and appreciate you very much.

I’m 16.5 years old and I’m from Israel. I just wanted to thank you for opening my eyes. I remember the day I became veg as I watched you on YouTube. It was so amazing and probably one of the most important hours in my life, and a turning point which I’ll never forget. Your name should be known in every house in the world. Since I became a vegan almost 9 month now I’m more joyful person, and appreciate things that used to seem obvious to me. Thank you Gary for changing my world to a better one!

i became vegetarian 11 years ago, but gradually started eating meat again, ignoring the emotions and beliefs used to have. maybe the most significant thing that made me re-think and not only to go back to vegetarian but to veganism, was a day in which i spoke with a client, trying to convince him in an argument we had that the holocaust and Nazism was not a “one time episode” in human history. i told him that thinking that the holocaust was a one time event, and Nazis were a unique Satan species is exactly the grounds to which other holocausts can thrive. we have to acknowledge the fact that each one of us can become corrupted. after that argument. i thought about what i had neglected myself, my vegetarian way of living. how easy and convenient it was to become ignorant again, disturbingly easy, especially with a society around me that supports the eating of animals. at that point i was more than willing to see your lecture that was published by my friends online.. i want to thank you for making me feel more normal and becoming vegan. you’ve opened my eyes even wider than before. i’m happy to return to an even better path.

I would like to thank you for your wisdom. Because of you my eyes have been opened! As a real human on this planet, I will now do what’s right, and try to spread this wisdom to everyone around me!

I watched your lecture, and after an hour decided to be changed for ever. I’m very thankful about the opportunity that you’ve given me to open my eyes.

You talk from your heart. That’s why it goes inside people’s minds. I am a big fan of yours. So is my brother Nissan Sinai. In fact, my brother has written a book about this subject. In the book he gives new alternatives, new ideas which no one has ever thought about. The book is on Amazon and some other sites. It’s called: The Dark Maze.
