|Think about it. When you eat a piece of meat, you literally eat a corpse, a dead animal. I’m not saying this to “disgust” you or to convince you of anything, just calling things with their names. We have been using the word “meat” long enough to make us forget it is a dead animal. This animal was alive before, and it was raised, and killed, not in awesome ways. --Laura Marie |
Now, when I eat, honestly, I am so much happier to tell myself that this meal didn’t cause any murder, does not contain any blood, cruelty, and that nobody is dead for my palate. It is honestly one of the best feelings in the world. --Laura Marie
