There’s been a lot written about Peter Brock, on the web (blogs, news websites etc), on tv.
A great Aussie, who did what he loved best. It is a sad loss of a life. As it was with Steve Irwin earlier in the week.
After reading many of the articles in both Melbourne papers (The Age and Herald Sun), one of the facts about him that I remember from several of the articles on him was that he was a Vegetarian. Why? Well, I’m a Vegetarian too. As are a growing number of people around the world (for various reasons).
Did a bit of a web search and came up with this quote attributed to Peter Brock.
At many functions I am given plates of lettuce and little else! There is a poor understanding of what constitutes being vegetarian or vegan.
I don’t think you should just try and fit in because you want, you know, peer approval. I mean, too many of us live in fear of the disapproval of those around us, so I’ve always worked very hard at just being comfortable with who I am.
