The more I learn about myself and the things that I believe, the more I realize how much I share in common with the other creatures around me. Having an audible voice doesn’t set me above the animals I share my home with or the creatures I share the earth with.
This dearest friend of mine inspires me to continue seeking ways in which I can walk lightly upon the earth. She shows me that there is no justification for the taking or harming of a life, only obligation to honor it.
We breathe the same breath and return to the same dust.
