Why I am a vegetarian

by Amelia, 9 years old

My name is Amelia Griffiths, I am 9 years old.

Where I lived the neighbors ran a pig club where they kept pigs to eat. They fed them daily until they were fat enough to eat. I fed them sometimes, when I looked at them I felt so sorry for them as I knew they would be killed and eaten. As you read this you wouldn’t expect to be treated with this behavior. And even worse eaten. And I bet you would expect better of everybody else around you.

Well that’s what animals think. And also animals are living creatures and they deserve as much respect as we do. I mean imagine life without them… so is killing them right?

I certainly don’t think it is right. Animals have as much rights as we do. And that’s some reasons why I’m a vegetarian.
