Re: “10 tickets left for Blood on the River a Lowcountry Boucherie

I'm not sure how anyone who says they love animals can kill an animal for the joy of doing so. But what strikes me the most about this event is the callus way these animals are described, the pigs are referred to by their names and that is followed by how they will be merciless butchered. I agree pigs should be named but my reasons may be different. They are highly emotionally and cognitively intelligent beings who feel pain and suffer as all beings do. This event isn't about sustenance, it's about ego, dominating a helpless being and then bragging about your ability to kill it which takes no skill. What takes strength is to look inward and recognize that you might have been wrong all along. Almost every vegan I know spends their free time fighting to get the message out to those who still believe animals are nothing more than commodities. Most of us at one time professed our love for meat and cheese and scoffed at those who would try to make us take a good hard look inward about what our choices mean for the animals, our health and the planet. But how do you explain how we now feel so passionately about sharing our moment of clarity and making it our mission to do so? It happened because at one point something clicked in our hearts, we educated ourselves about their emotional intelligence, and we just decided there's enough senseless killing, greed, and gluttony in the world, and stopped participating in it. There's nothing brave about killing a being that is no threat to your life. It's bullying, it's cowardly and its your ego. I'm crying for those animals today, and I'm crying for humanity. For all you chefs...you have the ability to change the health and hearts of millions of people by creating gorgeous meals made from the abundance of produce we have in this country. I've eaten beautiful food that is nutrient dense and feeds not only my body but my soul as well. Why wouldn't you take your skills to create life instead of death? Please consider that what you do is more than just cooking, it can change the world for the better if you want it to...you can be the hero!
