(Knapweed - 08) It's a little after 6:30 in the morning, and I'm sitting here in front of the computer contemplating how beautifully God has created everything, of which this knapweed represents only an extremely small part.  Then, all of a sudden my peace and meditation is shattered by hunters along the Hudson River.  It sounds as though a war has broken out, but it is only the reverberation of the hunters' depraved indifference to the pain of another of God's magnificent creations.  It is the sadistic sound that comes from taking pleasure in causing suffering and death.  Only a spiritually, morally, and ethically deficient person would deliberately take a life rather than preserve it.

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.
