Funny, but my emotions are more easily stirred when it comes to stories about animal abuse than when I hear about people abuse. I guess I’m jaded
when it comes to people, but my heart goes out to animals. Animals are just innocent victims of human folly. Both wild and domestic. While we
cheerfully carry on the business of decimating countless wildlife habitats, and choking every living thing to death with the toxic garbage we release
into the air and dump into the rivers and oceans, we’re quite willfully engineering the next mass extinction event. What a shame...
One animal that I find fascinating is the gorilla. The gentle beast. Just looking into their eyes, and the expressions on their faces, it’s hard not
to feel some kind of primal connection. They have as much right to this planet as we do, but we’re driving them to extinction by robbing them of
their habitat. Same old song and dance everywhere you look. Before long all the great, majestic creatures will be gone. Who knows? Maybe out of our
self-serving, short-sighted negligence we’ll end up digging our own graves, as well. Would probably serve us right.
At any rate, great thread. Sorry I went off on a tangent. That vid had quite an impact...
