it bothers me when people say hunting for sport is just part of the circle of life
the circle of life is a deer being killed and eaten, then having vultures and crows and scavengers eat the rest, then whatever remains going back into the soil it came from and feeding the grass and the trees, which in turn feed the deer
shooting a deer so that you can hang it’s head as a trophy over your fireplace is not part of a circle, it’s the end of a line.
I’m always finding humans at their best and worst. I see their ugly and their beauty, and I wonder how the same thing can be both. Still, they have one thing I envy. Humans, if nothing else, have the good sense to die.
It’s a lot easier to be angry at someone than it is to tell them you’re hurt.
