In a world operating remotely, it may seem we need social media to keep us together. But I think it’s only further tearing us apart.

That question hung heavy in my head like the lingering ring from a rifle’s bark. I’ve entertained plenty of conversations about hunting ethics, whether or not humans are designed to eat meat (we are), and why we smile after a kill. But for some reason this question, left in a social media comment on a photo of me with my harvested buck, would be the one to take root inside me.
