|The Life of a Meat Chicken|
I cannot believe I had been blind to the sufferings of these chickens for a very very long time. Every time I order a “drumsticks” or “wings” or a whole “fried chicken”, all I had been thinking is my appetite. I just thought about myself and how hungry I am. With misleading advertisements and several celebrities endorsing these restaurants, it made me forget about what is actually in the bucket or in my plate. I totally forgot that these chickens, just like us, want to live! They do not want to die!
I am happy to have made that “connection”! I have realized that chickens are not mere ingredients or objects. Just like us and all other animals that I used to eat, their lives matter to them too. At this time, I look at chickens in a different light. I now understand why it is actually great to “go vegan”. I now have an entirely logical reason not to visit those restaurants serving chicken or simply refuse a “chicken sandwich.”
After seeing their miserable lives, their disgusting treatment, torture and agony in the slaughterhouse – I can no longer eat a chicken meal! My insatiable appetite is not worth the lives of these innocent animals. I do not want to be part of the cruelty inflicted on these chickens.
