Animals are part of our world and deserve to be considered and cared for in a responsible and compassionate way. If parents and educators teach care and compassion for all living creatures to the children and the youth, we will create more humane generations for the future. This will improve conditions in general. It is a well known fact that people who care for animals, also care for people.
Compassionate leaders like Mahatma Ghandi and Albert Schweizer and Saint Francis of Assissi all agreed that you can judge a nation by the way it treats its animals and its children.
Humans who care for animals, also care for people. Animals are part of our world and deserve to be considered and cared for in a responsible and compassionate way. This applies to all creatures - wild, domestic, large and small.
Parents and educators, should encourage care and compassion for all living creatures from early childhood. This will create more humane future generations. People who care for animals care for people.
Let us follow in the words of leaders like Ghandi, Schweizer and St. Francis, that you can judge a nation from the way in which it treats its animals.
