Someone once told me:
If you don’t like the way we treat animals become a vegan.
Other people do it.
And I thought:
I could go to the grocery store and buy vegan food.
I could work extra hours to make up for it.
I could keep the garbage lid shut, so I can’t see of all the food waste we throw out.
I could make extra trips to the doctor to make sure I’m getting enough nutrients.
I could order a non-fat, non-dairy latte.
The world is full of “I coulds.”
But I can’t.
I can’t find the money.
I can’t get extra hours.
I can’t ignore the waste.
I can’t get the doctor to see me yearly, let alone monthly.
And who has the money for five dollar lattes?
