Today is a beautiful day, sunny and warm. After picking up fresh organic produce at a few local stands, my sister and I were sitting in our van while my mum bought meat from Steward’s Meats (butchers). She made a comment about how much it stank in the butchers and I told her that that was what she should think of when she eats all her meat. I also pointed out that EVERY person inside, walking into, and coming out of the store were very over-weight. She shocked me into saying that that was a stupid assumption that meat would have anything to do with their health. When I started to protest, she said that “people NEED meat.” This infuriated me that someone was telling my little sister that she needed meat and when I repeatedly asked who told her, she said that it is common sense and that I’m an idiot for being a raw vegan and going to die. She’s 15, plenty old enough to know this is untrue. WHY does she believe that?
So then I’m assuming that all her friends (tons of them) also believe this. So if so many people believe this, where’s the hope? Why are they so stupid? Why don’t they open their eyes and stop consuming all the “normal ways” of other people instead of researching and seeing what is right? I’ve noticed in school that the kids believe every single word that comes out of many teachers’ mouths. These are juniors and seniors! The next generation to regulate the world! And they are brainless! They are lazy and see “baby fat” as a healthy, sexy thing. I’m so angry and frusterated and I don’t know what to do but go outside and scream.
ARRRGGG!!! I’m going to go plant my carnations and tarragon. Nothing like being outside and with plants. At least THEY aren’t jerks.
