I ignored only Theravadins may vote. What am I?
I eat very little meat. I've had times where I went without for a year.
I often notice I'm healthier when I don't eat meat.
The suffering of animals has made me cry oftentimes.
One of the worst experiences was to look into the eyes of a cow that was chained too shortly , so she couldn't lie down her head, and was lying in her shit on naked cement.
I asked the farmer: Shouldn't there be more straw underneath her? And isn't the chain too short?" and he apologized, saying, usually, yes, or that she is able to lie down.
So, what can I do. Call the cops? I considered it.
I haven't bought veal since then and that should be over 10 years now. .
In any case, I can still see how she looked into my eyes,and held my gaze, for a long time. THAT look I will never forget.
Also the sadness she felt. I did have a feeling she was asking me to do something. I sadly caressed her face.
Perhaps I failed.
