Out of the mouths of babes, man.
This video of an adorable toddler explaining to his mother why he doesn’t want to eat his meat reduced me, as well as his mother, to tears.
I became a pescatarian nearly a year ago and have slowly been reducing the amount of meat my children eat as well. The fact that this little guy puts it all together for himself blows me away.
“When we eat animals they die!” Luiz Antonio exclaims. “I don’t like that they die. I like that they stay standing up.”

The video has gone crazy viral, scoring nearly 1.5 million page views at the time of this writing. Check it out.
