自分でしめた肉しか食べないビリオネア:Zuckerberg only eats meat he kills himself

I was quite impressed with Mark Zuckerberg when I heard he only eats meat he kills.

From his email to Fortune;
This year, my personal challenge is around being thankful for the food I have to eat. I think many people forget that a living being has to die for you to eat meat, so my goal revolves around not letting myself forget that and being thankful for what I have. This year I've basically become a vegetarian since the only meat I'm eating is from animals I've killed myself. So far, this has been a good experience. I'm eating a lot healthier foods and I've learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals.

I started thinking about this last year when I had a pig roast at my house. A bunch of people told me that even though they loved eating pork, they really didn't want to think about the fact that the pig used to be alive. That just seemed irresponsible to me. I don't have an issue with anything people choose to eat, but I do think they should take responsibility and be thankful for what they eat rather than trying to ignore where it came from.
He's hundred times more gracious than those who disrespect slaughter house workers.

My father used to send all of my three elder brothers to slaughter house work when they turn 16, old enough to get motorcycle license.  It was the most efficient way for them to earn quick money to buy their first motorcycles, but it was not the only reason.  As they come home after the long first day of work,  he made sure to serve beef sukiyaki dinner!
