overshare

i'm not a religious person, but just like everyone else, i need some bigger things to look to when things are tough, or new, or scary, or challenging.  when i found myself unexpectedly unemployed in 2009, i knew i was going to need some major coping mechanisms to get through a tricky time in my life.  along with some other helpful reads, i purchased this book - the book of awakening by mark nepo - and it has become a dog-eared, carry with me everywhere staple in my life ever since. 

i read this bit today, and thought it was worth sharing.

It would be impossible not to relate to this on some level. Sadly, how many people stay in the shell too long, and don't want to stretch through the discomfort. Great post.

Hens used for egg production come from hatcheries, where male chicks (none of which can lay eggs) are killed immediately after hatching. Each year, hundreds of millions of these vulnerable beings are suffocated or ground up alive to produce fertilizer or feed.

Chickens used to produce eggs, including eggs labeled "cage-free," have their beaks forcibly mutilated to minimize the damage they cause each other when crowded together.

At all farms, large-scale and small-scale, laying hens are killed when their production declines, typically within two years, as feeding these worn-out individuals cuts directly into profits. Often the bodies of "spent" hens are so ravaged that no one will buy them, and they are ground into fertilizer or just sent to a landfill.
If allowed to live free of exploitation and slaughter, chickens can live ten years or more. They protect, feed, and nurture their young, just like other animals.

I have a card in my kitchen and I don't know who said it but it goes "just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly". your shared passage makes this relevant in a new way. I'm going to grab this book from the library. Thanks for sharing.
