What can I say, UH, well I am really, embarrassing, slow with technology, although I try so hard, I am trying to figure out how to reach out to you, not only to tell you I simply love everything about you, but on the selfish side, my daughter Lisa Marie, a sophomore at Penn State, a music major, is an aspiring opera singer, has lead this year in the opera, Dialogues of the Carmalites.? Last year an extraordinary solo in the musical MASS. I can not give her much but I can only ask you check her facebook page,(I can barely find it, DAH) No prizes,no monies,tickets to see you would be great, but most important is if you could acknowledge My sweet Lisa Marie Rogali, (WELL WORTH IT). Love you and hello to Porcia, you are the best. Mary Rogali

True story, moments before my (now) fiance proposed to me I was watching this video... I thought it was the most beautiful moment and also thought the mother responded incredibly to her son.
I remember asking my partner to come into the room and watch "this video" and he was like ... "but I have something I want to show you..." (knowing now that he was going to propose) but I said, first you have to watch this (as I was all emotional with just how wonderful the heart that child -and mother- had) so we watched the video together and commented together on what a beautiful moment it was to be caught on tape, then my partner was like.. okay, now I want to show YOU something... then he started his proposal (which was perfect)...I love that I have this video engraved into such an important day in my life. I wish more families listened and valued their childrens voice like this mother did. Great post Ellen & Family!

Wow! How inspiring. This little boy has more compassion towards animals than most adults I know. It said it was removed because of some copyright thing but I was able to find it elsewhere. So glad I looked for it. I've passed it on in my Facebook page. I hope everyone reads it!

Hello,
Dear, the video was taken with its caption in English due to the fact that people are using this video to gain contracts with advertisements.
Has a video with English subtitles on the page of the author and mother of Luiz Antonio.

Sincerely,

Antonio, Father Luiz antonio.

Coincidentally, I just emailed a link of this video to Ellen today and when I copied the link and tested it I found out that the video with English translation was no longer available due to a copyright. I do not understand Portuguese but was fortunate enough to see this with English subtitles before it was removed from YouTube. It was so touching to see/hear a young child speak about why he didn't want to eat animals. His perspective comes from such a pure and logical place.

A victim of an insane society receiving a strong dose of sanity from her small child.
A very powerful video.
