Spoiler
My grandfather passed away  in 2014, but I was saddened by his suffering more so than the death. My grandmother died in 2016, but I wasn't present to see it. They brought my brother and I to all 50 states and several other countries throughout our lives. It's quite painful to look back at those memories and see that we'll never get an opportunity to spend time with them again.

Spoiler
The post painful part was leaving the house. Family started fighting over ownership months before my grandmother's death. One threatened to harm me if I didn't leave, and that was after I had the police over for a civil dispute.
Spoiler
I slept with a handgun under my pillow because he did place his hands on me months before. I dropped the charges because he'd just return after jail time. My grandmother was intelligent, but she allowed a convicted felon to live under her roof. I don't know if it was sympathy, or the brain tumors fucking up her mental state.

He or she needs to withstand me.
And what will you give in return?
It depends on the person.

How do you feel about hunting in order to control the population? How about killing off and eating invasive species that are destroying the environment such as Florida's lionfish?
i've shifted my thoughts on this frequently, but i've come to the conclusion (i think) that population control is a fair cause for that sort of thing—but there are other (perhaps better) solutions, such as reintroduction, because the only reason we need to do such things in the first place is because of overhunting

the reason you might have a deer problem, for example, is because we hunted too many wolves—whose ecological function is to keep deer in check—so of course the deer population is going to rise

reintroducing more wolves into the wilderness would solve the issue, but i won't sit here and tell you that a deer being mauled to death by a wolf is a whole lot better than being shot by a human—it's a pretty fucked up game we have to play, when you think about it

that said, i'm not sure what preys on lionfish—sharks, maybe? not sure how that works
Invasive species in states, especially in Florida are impossible to remove by natural means. Iguanas and Tegu Monitor lizards are consuming all of the birds around the Keys. The Lion fish have no natural predators in Florida, and they're killing off other habitats. It's encouraged to kill them actually. As for introducing more animals such as wolves, it isn't feasible outside of nature preserves at this point. Due to the growth of population, you'll see a greater decline in predators. Alongside of which, you have abominations such as coydogs/coywolves that are becoming more common around urban areas. They're becoming an issue around where I live, and they've killed off two of my house cats before dusk.

I don't think it's right to kill animals, but cutting meats from my diet won't improve my health or change the market any significant manner. It also wouldn't make me a better person.
Yes it would, no it wouldn't but that's not the point, and yes it would.
It's healthy to moderate your meats and cut back every so often. As for being a better person, leaving such an insignificant impact over a choice during my life shouldn't be concerning. Environmentally, it would make me a better person. It wouldn't make much of a difference unless there are more noticeable drops in consumers. Otherwise, it's not like becoming a vegan would make me any less of an asshole.
