"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," says Zuckerberg.

We respect the fact that Zuckerberg isn't hiding his head in the sand and pretending that what he is putting in his mouth was not once a living, feeling animal.
