Advice from Elders

1 Comment

I was just outside reading when a little boy walked by a nearby tree and yanked on a branch. The boy’s grandmother (older aunt?) said to him, “Hey! Be gentle with living things.”

I thought, “Wow. That’s the most reasonable thing I’ve heard all day.”

(Of course, a second later my inner-cynic kicked in and said, “But I bet that philosophy doesn’t extend to her diet.”)

    My grandma used to tell me that trees were screaming when she saw me rip a leaf off ones branches. But I see what you mean.. That woman eats meat EVERYDAY!
