It turns out my four year old daughter has a deep social conscience. This afternoon, she learned that the turkey basting in our oven came from an animal that died just because we wanted it on our table.
She was appalled. And she felt sad for the turkey.
So, our family is going veggie. At least for the time being. My daughter doesn’t want to hurt any more animals. Even by proxy.
There are worse reasons to change our diet.
