They were alive and harmless and it's not unlike Auschwitz, only I ate them. Well, made them into sauce over linguini.
Thankfully, they did not cry out in pain or beg for their lives.
Yes, it bothered me.
It always does.
What if every living thing could speak and plead for their lives?
Would we be able to eat at all?
Even nuts, seeds and fruit are the young of trees and plants.
We should honour their death that they may help us sustain our lives.
The circle of life.
Grateful it’s a fairly silent circle.
I feel like this sometimes.....
