Obrigado! Sadhu!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Very cool I like this.. as an uncle I'm inclined to recall how some kids, when they first learn of what meat is, are less inclined to want to eat it.

Ho! ye who suffer! know
Ye suffer from yourselves. None else compels,
None other holds you that ye live and die,
And whirl upon the wheel, and hug and kiss
Its spokes of agony,
Its tire of tears, its nave of nothingness.

It's above 500 000 now!

Clever kid!! Thanks for posting.

Our daughter, Dana, stopped eating meat a little over a year ago. She was also three. The rest of us were not vegetarian at the time. And despite persistent attempts by her grandparents, she continues to stay vegetarian. In the meantime, my wife and I follow her example more and more. The boys still like their occasional fried chicken or sausage.
