Animals pay a dear price simply for being born into a world where 'humans' see them as property. These beings are not resources they are living, breathing, hurting members of our global family. We are animals, animals have feelings. What we are doing to the earth and the animals is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another. We are all connected. We are one with everything. If we are to survive our compassion must be broadened further to include the whole human community and all members of our global family, the entire planet Earth. Open your heart, Be love.
