The youtube video below this piece is difficult, at least for me to watch, but one must watch it to fully understand. This touched me immensely since I have such love for all of God’s creation. If only some humans could react in such a manner, then we would all live in a much better world.

I happen to live in a rural area of South Carolina where there are many, many of God’s little creatures that try and coexist with man…but sadly they have no chance when trying to cross the road. Even sadder, I have seen some drivers intentionally swerve their car or truck in order to kill a helpless little animal. I was able one time to get the tag number and call it in, but I doubt if anything was done…we could all take to heart this video and learn. God gave man dominion over the animals and the planet, yet the lack of empathy by some is not confined to just the little animals, but we as a people as well. Where I ask is the love?


 

All of God’s Creatures Great and Small

 

He just tried to live, I say when I spy a small creature lying dead in the road.

I say a little prayer even though there are many who say that they have no soul.

I have now five strays that I have taken in and they love without condition…

which is something I seldom see from people that call themselves men.

 

I see no empathy as a man beats his wife.

I see no love except for self in the creation of strife.

Yet if we could but all love the way this little cat loved his friend.

Then, oh then what better a world would we live in.

 

I guess that much of this I see is through rose colored glasses born of empathy.

For life is too short, life is too quick to put self-first, life is just one breath away from eternity.

 

 

I guess I will never understand why love fails sometimes to triumph the evil of the day.

All that I can do, I do…God bless his little soul…may He protects us all from ourselves in every way.

Your last line, "...may He protect us all from ourselves in every way." is strong punctuation for the 'do unto others' concept. Your writing shines bright light on 'what we do to others, we ARE doing to ourselves.' Good missive. ~~ Diana

Kindness is the only language animals can understand. Thank you for keeping on writing about man's inhumanity towards helpless creatures.

they love without condition…
which is something I seldom see from people that call themselves men.

And they don't know how to be cruel, while mankind's cruelty never seems to end.
