I believe in respecting all living things. There is an energy that surrounds all life, even the smallest of creatures. We should never destroy just for the sake of destroying. I am pained when I see small children crushing insects under foot just because they can kill them. There is no reason to ever kill any creature just because we can. Have our great leaps forward in learning and technology separated us so far from the natural world that we have forgotten that we too are part of the life force of this Universe? Life is a marvelous mystery; how it came to be; why it exists in the first place. All life seems connected. Let's teach our children to respect all life, from the greatest to the smallest of creatures.
