be aware that as you consume the flesh of the turkey that you are killing and feeding off of another being to sustain yourself. this is not a criticism, but a call for awareness. if you needed to kill all the animals that you consume by your own hand, would you change your meat consumption patterns? think about what you are putting into your body, and the situations surrounding its growth and creation. you consume it's life force, realize this for the gift that it is, and thank it silently for the nourishment it provides you.
