Hi, I have been a Vegetarian for 37 years. I live in Northern Ireland which, to say the least, isn't very veggie friendly.
However, I have always coped one way or the other. I have just finished watching the Doc. Vegan 2020 on Youtube, and although I thought it was very good, I find myself increasingly overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of animal torture and slaughter going on each year!
I know things are getting better and we now have Veganuary etc happening, but I find that people are still of the opinion that animals don't matter and after all, are here for us to eat, that's all! I suppose it's this time of year and the talk of turkey slaughter everywhere, plus vegans/vegetarians are saying that Covid 19 is caused by how we have mistreated the animals! If this is true I find the whole subject very distressing and disturbing.
Just wondered if others found it this way, and how you handle the gargantuan figures of animal destruction and the horror of continuing slaughter houses, plus the fact that humans are the root cause of this terrible virus
Probably should also have added, I'm the only vegetarian in my entire family and circle of friends!
