I am posting Jack's e-mail to his family and friends, I think he summed up the day very well.
"It all sounds a little crazy to raise chickens and even more, chickens for meat, but I've come to the conclusion that it’s crazy not to. Humans have congregated together for thousands of years to slaughter animals for food. It was just as much a social event as it was work. The 6 of us sat there at our slaughter table, plucking feathers and disemboweling birds and talked and talked time. I think this is because what we were doing was a very human thing. A human thing we’ve forgotten about over time, a human thing that once connected us more to the earth, to each other, and to the reality of life. It doesn’t take long to convince someone that the sofa sitting, TV watching, fast food eating America of today is slowly turning into a nation of over weight, over medicated, and generally unhappy people. It felt good to fight the big food corporations, it felt good to treat animals with respect and give them a place to be, and act the way they’re meant, and it simply felt good to be human".
