I have to admit, the crab was delicious.  But seeing the teeming market, the crowds, the live animals crawling over each other in desperation… it was a bit much. In most industrialized nations, we are so far removed from the process of acquiring food that we forget that they come from living creatures…

“Briefly, it is not only their fellow human beings that the beloved of God must treat with mercy and compassion, rather must they show forth the utmost loving-kindness to every living creature.” -Abdu’l-Baha
