Poignant words from a vegan activist:
Why do we bear witness to these 'others'? These animals who look into our eyes with curiosity, friendship, fear, love, knowing?
These animals who tear our hearts apart with the knowledge that they are about to have their lives brutally taken. Not humanely. Against their will. Purely for human tastebuds and profit.
I tell you that I am ruined by this day. That their sweet innocent faces, their desire to live, their utter confusion at the lot drawn for them, leaves me devastated for them and for us. You tell me "Don't look then.", "Don't go there." "Why do you do it to yourself?"
I DO IT BECAUSE YOU EAT THEM.
You eat their bodies without a single thought for WHO they are. Their lives, desires, sufferances, are nothing to you. You see plastic-wrapped pieces which resemble to you a simple desire, a tradition, a thing which you call food.
They lived, and moved, in grace which we can never imagine or achieve, with those beautiful bodies you call 'meat'. They lived, in cages, sheds or fields, with purity, integrity, and a simple unquestioning need to just BE.
If no-one bears witness to them in the few moments they have left in their short lives, they will always be just an invisible number, a thing in a collective of somethings called 'meat'.
But they were SOMEONE. So many beautiful, individual someones, and they all deserve to be recognised as such.
