My love and passion doesn’t stop with just dogs. I love and respect all animals we share this planet with. They are our neighbors. How can we respect ourselves if we don’t respect our neighbors and our home, planet earth. Since the industrial revolution of mankind, humans have destroyed this magnificent planet. Sure, some of our inventions are wonderful and make our lives much better, but we have become irresponsible about the well-being of not only our planet but others that live on it with us.
Nature in the wild is not fair, it’s not meant to be all roses without the thorns. If you’ve ever seen a top predator hunt you know that all to well. I know it’s part of life and survival of the fittest, but it still disturbs me when I see an animal kill another. But the difference between them killing each other and us killing them, is that they do it for SURVIVAL, we do it because we can. We tell ourselves it’s okay and believe it’s acceptable because they are not human and anything on this earth that is not human, we believe we are superior to. Wake up call…..we are not superior to anything on this earth but the image we create in our own minds. We are mammals, look it up. We are part of the Great Ape family.
As a species we should be the guardians of others, we have a higher intelligence and we should us it wisely. Instead we have chosen to hunt and kill innocent animals almost to the point of extinction. If the show was on the other foot, where would you run?
When was the last time you took a good look at this planet? There is no other like it that we know of. I don’t think there is. But we may never know the answer to that question. Why are we destroying the only home we will ever have? This planet once offered us beautiful blue seas rich with marine life, clean fresh air to sustain all life, soil that is rich for the growth of life. Without our atmosphere we do not exist. What is wrong with us and why. I don’t know if we can repair the damage we have done, I hope we can and this planet forgives us. Because if we have destroyed this planet and continue to do so we too will undoubtedly become extinct.
