Sorry about the audio. I thought my microphone was active but it was in fact.
To add clarity, I was omnivore a majority of life. October 2016 I tried vegetarianism and veganism. It was an experiment that I really enjoyed and it changed my life in a positive way. In 2020, I tried an omnivore diet to see how it felt for me. Today I say I'm plant-based as I do not fit the category of vegan.
But, that's not really the point. Listen for the common ground and see what each party agrees on and see how we can sharpen our perspective. This sharpening can be for intelligent or compassion.
