The Jesuit education I received from Saint Joseph’s University was heavily focused on big philosophical ideas such as the purpose of human kind, ethics, and morality. During my first Philosophy class I was introduced to Peter Singer’s utilitarian approach to life and that is when my life has changed for the better and forever.
Let me share one of my favorite quotations with you:
“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.”
— Leonardo da Vinci
