The Ethics of Chowing Down

I’m a meat-eater, and I’m a reader. I’m not a reader of social media posts so much. I read books. A lot of books. Besides chocolate, it’s my drug of choice. So, there I am, minding my own business, reading “Evil: The Science Behind Humanity’s Dark Side” by Julia Shaw, when I find myself flying into a minor rage. Meat-eater…

A Thank You to Western Medicine

Dear Western Medicine, I am writing to you in order to express my tremendous gratitude for your existence in my life.  You have been so much a part of me since the day I was born that I’m not sure what I would do without you. You have such a high standard of education for all who are called to…
