And then, I saw him...WILBUR. Although, it was not all of Wilbur- it was only his HEAD. I am not a meat loving person when it comes to meals. In fact, many of you have probably seen the photo taken last year while I was here in January (and I realized that our group was "roasting a pig"). I pleaded with them to Save Wilbur, but I realized that I was not going to win this battle. I know, God has provided us with lots of good food to eat and enjoy, including animals. But his face, it was like he was starring at me and calling out to me for HELP...(Rest In Peace Little One).
As I walked along the Market, Gleny just laughed at me as I continued to point to all the heads of numerous pigs, sheep, and cows. Meat hanging in rows, flies surrounding the area, ready to be sliced. I even saw chopped off chicken heads...and people were buying them. All I could think of was, what could they be used for?
I thought I would share some photos so you could capture the scene just as if you were here. I really enjoyed this time with Gleny and for all the help she is giving me. I am sure soon going to the Market will be second nature to me and seeing and smelling the meat as I walk by...will be the norm. Gleny tried to get me to purchase "Cue" (guinea pig)- and I just could not stomach the thought today of seeing that little "pet" on my plate.
Well, this is all for now. We miss you all dearly! Thank you again for following the journey!
