Its been a year and everyday I’m still proud of my decision.
Before that choice I still loved animals but was obviously completely blind to the fact that if I really cared for them why am I allowing them to be slaughtered for my meals? I still can’t answer that question. I remember being really really young and asking my mom if I could stop eating meat though, and having her getting really angry at me. Then I turned 18 and woke up.
Nothing in the world can convince me now that eating animals could right, ever. An animal is a conscious being able to feel, not just pain but emotions. I have no idea why people find this so hard to understand seriously, I have heard every excuse in the book saying how animals are too stupid to have emotions like people. I really think that thats an excuse to not feel bad about being a carnivore.
My personal belief is that animals deserve equal rights, to be thought of how’d they feel, to be loved. Most of you guys must of had a childhood pet you cared for..Would you eat him or her? no. So whats the difference in eating a chicken cow or pig? They are still animals capable of loving, feeling and all with unique personalities..There’s so much we can learn from these creatures that are only looked at as food.
Today every creature I see I consider a friend, every single one. I sound like a crazy hippie, but that’s it isn’t it.
I don’t give a damn if you eat cardboard, the least you can do is look up where your food comes from and understand how its made, never turn a blind eye you have no excuse. Treat everything living thing with respect.
