I use to live in the projects and there was a lady there who would gut a bucket of fish every week. She came to be known as the “fish lady.” Seeing them struggle like that and suffering has haunted me through the years. I was only 3-4 years old and I told her the fish were suffering, but she said they didn’t feel pain. Even at a young age I felt bad for them. What haunts me to this very day is their eyes. They looked terrified and looked like they were in pain. I just wanted to rescue them.
