Does each animal matter?

I don't know if I am really ready to ask, address or answer that question, but I figured if I titled my blog this, I can't avoid it. I recently read Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer.

The book doesn't judge people for what they eat, but it does an amazing job of addressing our emotional connection to food, particularly to Thanksgiving turkey. Highly recommended.

Compassion is a muscle that gets stronger with use, and the regular exercise of choosing kindness over cruelty would change us.
