The Case for Vegetarianism Explained by a Child

I am so touched by the beauty of this child. He recognizes what so many people try to ignore, that animals are sentient beings and there is no reason to eat flesh and cause such suffering. Children, if they are explained what they are eating, are usually horrified by the very idea of causing the death of a pig or cow to simply put a section of a corpse on your plate. The Earth is abundant with so many vegetables, nuts, grains, and fruits. Why kill? This must have a profoundly underestimated effect on the consciousness of a child which stays with them into adulthood, desensitizing them to others’ suffering.
