Two days later, I was at dim sum for a lunch meeting, and the chicken dish ordered by guests at our table arrived with the entire chicken head (eyes, beak, everything) on the plate. I don't judge, but at least see for yourself how sweet and loving these darling little birds are. And yes, I know people don't usually eat pigeons...but it makes you think, doesn't it?
I asked The Boyfriend later that night if he thought people would still eat meat if every time they did the head of the animal would come with their meal...he thought probably not, most people would skip it if that was the case.
Clearly, we are not the only souls on the planet. Sometimes I feel like we act like we are, that we have power over others who are smaller and more helpless than ourselves.
Maybe if we could all just try to have a little more love and compassion, at least as much as those two little love birds, the world would be a better place.
