Note: I wrote this piece in June 2013 and have never shared it before. I guess I was waiting for the right space and Orange Door SC has supplied that! I have since witnessed many more animal slaughters, and it is really interesting to read something that I wrote after my first experience with it.
“Some thing is going to die today.”
Looking past the man saying these words, about 50 yards over his left shoulder, my eyes are fixed on another person.
