i think the thing i most don't get about people is...how is it that we want a good life, some comfort, some companionship, some kindness, some respect, pain free health and decent food and yet it never occurs to us that animals (or sadly, even other people) might actually want the same?
so how exactly do you let your elderly arthritic and soul lonely yard dog sit outside in a leaking, dirty, uncomfortable dog house with a bowl half full of cheapo, crappo, soggy wet, no name food in the rain... day after suffering day?
how do you walk past a tent and tarp city of actual homeless human folks and resent their audacity in being visible?
why do you think poverty is a sin and the poverty stricken are obviously to blame?
we sit in the comfort of our granite counter top subdivision houses watching our big screen TV's while dining on perfectly barbecued steak and we don't waste a thought on the silent k9 or feline suffering in our own back yard or the hungry kids on the other side of the tracks or the misunderstood and forgotten humans out on the cement streets without a roof over their head.
look at cecil and his trophy lion killer..did the rich dentist stop for even a splinter of a second and think that maybe cecil did not want to be a dead trophy head?
this is our problem..this is why the world is in such a mess...we don't do unto others as we want to be done unto.
we just want to be done unto well and who the heck cares about everyone else?
we are making our bed...and one day, this generation or the next is going to have to lay in it...and it won't be much fun.
