Respect

sheeplamb‘We know things about her that no one should ever know, or want to know, about a fellow being – the sight of her flayed body, the weight of her severed thigh, the taste of her burned, bone-punctured flesh, the charred crunch of her fractured ribs, the flavor of her spilled marrow, the taste, texture and flavor of every aspect of her despair, degradation and defeat.

We know every detail of what we have forced her to be – an object to consume and excrete. What we don’t know, what we don’t want to know, is what we must know if we are to restore our own humanity: who she is.

In the true spirit of respect – a word whose root means ‘to look back at one’ – we invite you to look at beings like her with the moral courage and intellectual integrity to actually SEE them.’

~ Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary

Show respect. Live vegan.
