A Matador’s Remorse

Facebook

This story will more than likely touch you deeply.

When I saw it in my facebook newsfeed yesterday, I was brought to tears and literally could feel the chills running down my spine.

Here’s how the story reads:

“This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera’s career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight.

He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. (The look on this bull’s face says it all for me. Even grievously wounded by picadors, he did not attack this man.)

Torrero Munera is quoted as saying of this moment: “And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading.

It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer – because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”

“Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures.”

In my mind, this human being became a true man when he had this epiphany and I have deep respect for the courage it took for him to listen to his heart.

What do you think of bullfights?

Would you or have you ever attended one?
