Whether you are an avid meat-eater, or a strict vegetarian, this little girl’s words will touch your heart.
You will find countless people all across this beautiful planet who embrace vegetarianism for various reasons. Maybe they have a mindset of compassion and love towards animals and just can’t bare the thought of eating them. Or, maybe they choose to eat only veggies because of health and diet reasons.
Whatever the cause for their choice, it is theirs to make without judgment from anyone else.
For this little girl, her mind is made up and she’s made her choice.
Apparently, when I was a child, I used to say similar things. My parents told me a few stories of how I would defend the animals we were about to consume for dinner, but it never lasted more than a few minutes. I lacked commitment to the cause when my dad was in the kitchen.
But this kid, well, I think she may just stick with it. Probably a lot longer than a few minutes. Truth be told, she may even inspire me to give it another try.
In the video, the little girl tells her mom that she will eat whatever is put on the table…as long as it’s not an animal.
With her adorable way of explaining things, regardless of where you stand on the subject, you can’t help but see her side of things.
Personally, I think everyone should be able to make their choice without worrying if someone is going to make them feel out of place or guilty. This little girl can show us all how to smile when we discuss this topic in the future with our friends, for sure.
