Animals and Habitat ~ 8 PM on ANIMAL PLANET

We must co-exist together for the benefit of all life. Many of the unfortunate things that are happening in North America and as far away as in Africa and beyond are because we have not paid enough attention to our connection to the animals. When we disrupt their habitat, we disrupt our own as well. We have shunned the wisdom of the elders about the cycles and seasons of life and having reverence for Mother Earth. We have thought man was almighty and not the animals. We have thought that by controlling, we could win at any cost. We thought that because we could do it to helpless animals, we could also do it to helpless humans. Man has been wrong. There is no action whether good or bad that doesn't have a consequence.

You have seen here for the past two weeks I've been posting reminders on behalf of the Animal Planet miniseries SPRING WATCH USA. Watching springtime babies being born and begin to be raised is a pleasant and educational way for many people to have the opportunity to learn more about how similar humans and animals are when it comes to life beginning and trying to sustain itself. If we can realize our kinship to all life, more reverence for it in all forms is a natural progression. ~ Patty Ann Smith
