(Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus) - 06) After about five minutes, this monarch butterfly flew away to visit another flower. Shortly, she will join other monarchs and fly south to the Transverse Neovolcanic Mountain Belt in Mexico, where most eastern monarchs migrate for the winter. The Bible's prime directive is for us to love God with all our heart, soul, might, and mind. We cannot fully do that unless we also love His creation, too, and our neighbors as ourselves. Furthermore, we will never have a true and lasting peace until we fully recognize all other living beings as our neighbors, and stop killing and eating them. Go with God, sister butterfly!

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation. Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion. It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
