When I heard about this project, I wanted to be in it. Compassion is a powerful, powerful thing and so beautiful it almost always brings me to tears.
Then I thought, what on earth am I going to write about? And, just like that. I knew.
I think I love seeing compassion because it’s in all of us. It has no race, no religion, only kindness and understanding.
I remember being taught as a child that animals have no compassion. I forget who said it but today, I know that person had no idea. Animals are incredibly compassionate.
Check out this cow. She’s in her glory. I actually think she’s smiling. Who knew cows liked hugs?
Monkeys like them too.
So do humans…
I saw a show on TV the other day about animals who adopted other baby animals. Turns out, this happens in nature more often than I thought.
That’s a baby owl. Not a puppy.
This one adopted ducklings.
This one is a pigeon and a baby squirrel.
The examples go on and on.
All of them are animals being compassionate.
Humans can do it too.
And when we do, it’s a beautiful thing.
