The world is so simple in the eyes of a child.

There’s a bunch of stuff, some big, some small.There’s people and animals and buildings and cars and flowers and everything in between. How children make sense of the world always fascinates me.

No two children seem to understand how life works in quite the same way.

Take Luiz Antonio for instance:

He’s developed the worldview that animals are to be taken care of by us, human beings. It’s such a simple yet profound idea. I bet if you asked Luiz why we are the ones who need to take care of them, you’d hear some pretty unique beliefs.

Sometimes we take for granted why we behave a certain way, what significance or purpose the things around us serve, and how we came to believe what we do.

I may not give up eating animals after watching the video above, but at the very least, I’ll ask a few more “why” questions

  1. It is very sweet and I love that his mom lets him work it out. She doesn’t reprimand him and actually really takes to hear what he says. What a great video.

    • I agree; the mom handled his questions really well. It would have been easier for her to dismiss what he was saying and force him to clean his plate.

      Yet she took the time to listen to him as you mentioned.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. 🙂
