In "How I Became A Murderer" in the October issue of Teen Ink, I was in awe of this woman's honesty about the reality of her job and the hardships she faces during it. Euthanasia is a very touchy subject for most people in society today. It is a strong argument in the fight for animal rights and often has people emotionally involved. I can certainly agree with the woman in this passage. She is very passionate about animals and her job. Although this is an important part of being a veterinarian, she hates it and must force herself to ignore her conscience and emotions every time she performs this horrible but ofter necessary act. It was very comforting to know that in the end, she brought Hannibal's ashes, whom she considers her first unjustifiable death, to be spread in the sand to finally find him a suiting home.
