Yesterday, over dinner, I had a bloody conversation with some of my new friends here in Gummersbach. We talked about meat eating and the experiences of getting such meat on the plate.
An Egyptian guy, who is very nice, told delicacies in Egypt which included the taste for eating sheep’s eyeballs and brain. If that is not enough to turn you of what you are eating right now, you’d better hear this.
He said he used to witness the killing of rabbits. ”It screams like babies or children, you know,” he said in the matter of factly.
That really got me, friends. Picture of trembling rabbits were in my head, their baby-like scream shouted in my ears. I thought about my lovely pet dog, who to me, is similar to rabbit in a sense that she hops a lot. And of course she has a white fur.
That was it! I don’t need any more dose of animal’s right campaign. I decided to reduce my consumption of any meat, and at best would not have it at all.
Thanks to Ahmed, the nice guy from Egypt whose grotesque story inspired me to work on my vegetarian habit.
