I understand what Marisa is trying to say
Yukkuri are alive just like humans
Yukkuri have a heart and can suffer
Please understand that and don't kill us, right ?
Yes, I understand what Marisa wants to say
...but don't get me wrong
If humans understand that yukkuri are also living beings the same as us
then human will stop killing yukkuri ?
That wont happen.
Humans kill and eat other living beings
Human kill and remove other living beings to get places to stay
Humasn even live fighting and discriminating against other humans
...that's how life is
That's why for human, nothing really change no matter if we understand yukkuri as living beings or not, as long as we're the creatures called humans.
