When I was 7, before I knew how to read and write, I had a feeling that I knew how to do it, I just didn’t know how to connect the dots. During my first class of reading and writing when my teacher explained to us how to connect letters to make words I had an “aha” feeling. Suddenly it all made sense. I have experienced this feeling many times since then—and it’s why I’m vegan. It makes sense to not torture and murder other beings for mere pleasure.
