“If nothing matters, there’s nothing to save”
Jonathan Safran Foer…A great read! Let yourself be informed about factory farming..
The quote is from a conversation with the author’s Grandmother, how she survived the war..
“The worst it got near the end. A lot of people died right at the end, and I didn’t know if I could make it another day. A farmer, a Russian, God bless him, he saw my condition, and he went into his house and came out with a piece a meat of for me.”
“He saved your life.”
“I didn’t eat it.”
“You didn’t eat it?”
“It was pork. I wouldn’t eat pork.”
“What do you mean why?”
“What, because it wasn’t kosher?”
“But not even to save your life?”
“If nothing matters, there’s nothing to save.”
