Enjoy this t-shirt's cursive font that elegantly states: "Love Respects All Lives." Yes, compassion is what we strive for in every nook of our lives. It's easy to share it with cute puppies and sweet children, it's slightly harder to extend it to strangers, and it sometimes feels impossible to extend it to that guy who cut you off on the freeway or that neighbor who voted for the other candidate. But for so many, consideration of animals is not even on the radar. And yet, chickens and cows are suffering tremendously within the food industry. From the smallest bees to the largest wolves and rhinos, animals are dropping dead because of pesticides, habitat reduction and poaching. We have the power to stop this, and that power is love. It's how you replace the beef in your burger with a veggie patty, because cows shouldn't be kept in those conditions. It's letting the milkweed grow up all over your garden so the monarchs can eat and survive. It's the marches, the legislation, the vegan or vegetarian diets, the conversations with friends and the effort to take that spider out of the house -- all of these show your respect for every life. Let your love shine true, that our efforts for peace between people may be bolstered by our kindness to animals.
