Dragonflies - Photo 08

Dragonflies and damselflies are very interesting insects to observe.   When it is too hot, they will perch in the shade, as this one is doing, or they will position themselves to keep the heat away from their abdomen.  They are intelligent beings in their own right, and it is unfair for us to consider ourselves to be superior.  God created them just as He created us.  God gave us dominion over the other creatures of this world, so that we might protect them; He did not say we were superior to them, only that through our abilities we were capable of ruling this world.   Let us do so with sensitivity to the feeling of others and with unconditional love and compassion.

lamb-right lamb-left 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.
