I don’t consider myself an animal rights activist, an extremist, a tree hugger or a hippie, I’m an earthling. I share this earth with countless other beings therefore just one of many. I share the same desire as all other beings, that is the desire to live. For one to assume they have rights that are above another’s is an outstanding disconnection of who and what we really are. We share this earth, therefore share each other and within that, we are all one. Understanding this and excepting this is profound. For me, it provides a comfortable sense of reality. In saying this, I live my life dedicated to do the least amount of harm that I can. This means Respecting all life, for all life is important.
