I don’t want people to feel bad about not being vegetarian or vegan – we’re all on our own path, but I feel compelled to share what I’m learning about the cruelty to animals and the severity and depths of the meat and dairy industry. I’ve just stopped eating all meat, pork, poultry, and fish due to what I’m learning, and I think am moving to becoming vegan.
For most of us, there’s a disconnect between what we eat and the atrocities that animals go through in order for us to eat them, when we don’t even need to in order to live happy and healthy lives.
I am forcing myself to bear witness to what goes on in factory farming – it’s the least I can do considering they are screaming bloody murder night and day. Death is a relief for them. Not to mention the severe impact agribusiness has on the environment.
I cannot not say something. We can and must do better.
