  1. thank you for this post, I recently finally quit eating “meat”, I grew up in Mexico, and my summer vacations were spent in a small town where we ‘knew’ the animals we ate. I remember my grand uncle killing a chicken we all knew for Christmas dinner, or sometimes because the hens became old… the treatment was so different!! Yes, they killed them but after years of taking care of them and being even their friends, they knew older animals had to leave anyway, and of course the killing was as compassionate as a it could be with a pet, yet the meat eating was so spare, ’cause only one or 2 chickens became old per year… most of the time we ate frijoles con arroz (beans with rice) tortillas, and other veggies and chiles, so the animal eating was an special occasion and somehow we thanked the memory of the animal…

    but these days, all that slaughtering, the not seeing the killing as you said, yes!! it’s Evil!!

    I am so glad I am finally coming on the vegan side. I am not perfect, I am still having some products, like a muffin I ate not long ago that I am sure has milk and eggs… but one day I decided to become vegetarian, and then I realized, the milk, the eggs, the poor poor eggs conveyed so much torture and sacrifice, that not, I just couldn’t do it anymore…

    thank you for writing for this cause!
