I'm Glad I'm Not A Squirrel

what? just some place where messy stuff will not be in the photo range ~

The thread title reminds me of days when I can really see squirrles here and there on the road...I hope, animals can live freely and safely as well as human beings~

Here is the script from link1 below, a conversation between a Brazilian boy and his mom:

 

******

When his mother tells him that the octopus is real and through further conversation, how it came to be a meal on his plate little Luiz begins to protest eating the octopus and a list of animals because they are just that, "animals."

 

"So … ! When we eat animals they die!" questions Luiz in the video.

"Ah … yeah," replies his mom.

"Why?" asks Luiz.

"So we can eat, love."

"Why do they die? I don't like that they die. I like that they stay standing up," he responds.

"OK. Alright. So we're not going to eat it anymore. OK?" says his mother.

"OK," says Luiz before continuing: "These animals … you gotta take care of them … and not eat them!"

"You're right son, so eat the potato and rice."

"Alright … why are you crying?" he asks his mother innocently as she continues recording his reaction.

"I'm not crying, I'm just touched by you," she says.

"I see water coming out," he tells his mother.

"Eat. No need to eat the octopus, alright?" she tells him.

 

The video which was published on YouTube on May 29, has already been viewed nearly 1.5 million times as of Monday afternoon and it has sparked a growing debate between opponents and proponents of vegetarianism and elicited emotional responses in many others.

 

"OM*G Pass me the Kleenex! That child is adorable and no one should give children meat until they are given the choice themselves, when they are old enough to decide for themselves like this little lad," wrote Sasha Honey in the comments section of the video on YouTube.

 

"I do respect vegans, but I am a meat eater LOL That being said, this child is such a beautiful example of the innocence and love of children...and how they see the world. It is amazing, and good for his mom for respecting his feelings," wrote Crystal Haka on the video.

 

"Seriously? Heated debate? Name calling? This is a video of a little boy making discoveries about the world, not a PETA campaign!" wrote Rosalie Coleman.

 

"Arguing about the eating of animals is a never ending argument with no right or wrong, answer just like the God debate. Obviously humans don't NEED meat, otherwise vegetarians wouldn't exist, they'd be dead, the end. Appreciate the video for simply what it is, an endearing moment between a mother & her son," she added
