Thanks, moi, for your thoughts. I eat meat sometimes, but I get really grossed out by the mass consumption of poorly raised animals during the holiday season. I'm opting not to have turkey this Thanksgiving and am grateful to have that option. I understand that families in need aren't in a position to say no. I just wish that we had better options for them as well as the turkeys.
