I always looked at it from the animal's perspective

Since going vegan at the age of 13, I have always believed in promoting veganism. I always looked at it from the animal’s perspective. If that were me in the slaughterhouse, if I were a slave to another species, I wouldn’t care if I got a bigger cage or if I were gassed to death instead of having my throat slit. The thing I would want the most, and would hope for for my children’s future, would be to no longer be considered as someone else’s property. An individual in control of her own life.
