The least I [any of us!] can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.
You aren't going to save the world on your own. But you might inspire a generation of kids to save it for all of us. You would be amazed at what inspired children can do.
Empathy is really important.. Only when our clever brain and our human heart work together in harmony can we achieve our full potential.
Farm animals are far more aware and intelligent than we ever imagined and, despite having been bred as domestic slaves, they are individual beings in their own right. As such, they deserve our respect. And our help. Who will plead for them if we are silent? Thousands of people who say they ‘love’ animals sit down once or twice a day to enjoy the flesh of creatures who have been treated so with little respect and kindness just to make more meat.
Let us develop respect for all living things. Let us try to replace violence and intolerance with understanding and compassion. And love.
Above all we must realize that each of us makes a difference with our life. Each of us impacts the world around us every single day. We have a choice to use the gift of our life to make the world a better place - or not to bother.
Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help shall all be saved.
- Jane Goodall
