In to days Daily Prompt: Read the story of Richard Parker and Tom Dudley. Is what Dudley did defensible? What would you have done?
Well, I read the story and basically it is about people eating each other due to their circumstances. Please click on the link to read more. WP wants to know if it is a defensible act? What would I/you have done?
This is not the first time humans have eaten each other in an attempt to survive. I find myself unable to judge their actions even though I felt repulsed whilst reading the story. I cannot say what I would have done…because I have not been in that situation.
With all of my thoughts going to and fro in my mind, only one thought seems clear to me; I don’t think they would ever have thought of doing that under normal circumstances.
