The story from Sir Paul McCartney. He was at his farm in Scotland, looking out the window with his wife Linda.
“We were eating roast lamb for Sunday lunch and it was the lambing season and there were all these beautiful little lambs gamboling around. Then we just looked at the lamb on our plate and looked at them outside again and thought ‘we’re eating one of those little things that is gaily running around outside.’ It just struck us, and we said, ‘Wait a minute, maybe we don’t want to to do this.’ And that was it, that was the big turning point and we said we’d give up meat.”
P.S. Can you imagine wanting to slit the neck of one of these adorable creatures and let them bleed to death? Probably not. Well, then, can you imagine paying someone else to do the dirty work for you? Unfortunately, the vast majority of us do that daily. We have effectively, hired an executioner when we bought the meat. Let’s think about eating delicious plants instead.
