All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize.
This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.
By Cheryl Greear
In a world where innocence is lost so quickly, I pondered if it truly
exists at all. Where does one go to find it....this freedom of a
pure, existence amidst an age-old classroom called life who teaches that innocence is best ignored.
It was when I stopped looking that I was able to "see" a world with an
abundance of innocence and I chose it for my guide. Stop for a moment
and watch nature. Listen to all that is to be heard; for, this is the
true teacher of all living things. The smell of a rose, the call of a
wolf, the sight of a bird in flight. Nature's untainted innocence is
responsible for all these things.
Nature hears no voice but it's own; yet, speaks to all who will listen. A voice as constant as a rising sun or branches swaying in the wind.....for these are the soft-spoken words of innocence.
