If They Can Do It, Why Can’t We?

This amazing video went viral on the internet and should be viewed by everyone in the world. It’s a video about the bond and love between two different species, and how they mourned when separated.

These beautiful animals demonstrate a bond despite different appearance, genetic structure and personality.

There are several lessons in this video:

1. Animals have emotions. It’s been told to us that they do not, but they do. Countless videos of animal emotions are available on YouTube. This should make us think about how we treat animals. They are not stupid, instinct driven creatures who do not love or feel and are subject to our domination and abuse.

2. Despite obvious differences in appearance, they still love one another. All the fighting that goes on between humans because of differences in appearance and opinions on how the world works is truly senseless. It would seem that animals are capable of exhibiting something that most humans are not: love and compassion despite differences.

3. We as humans can learn valuable lessons from other species, rather than disregarding them. If we can confirm the sentience of animals, then we have to consider that there may be sentience in trees and nature and the planet herself. An then we have to ask ourselves how we can justify the wanton destruction we perpetuate upon this planet.

I say all this because there are some awful things going on in the world today. I don’t want to get into politics here, just say that each situation should be viewed with compassion and love rather than hate and judgment. If humanity would only shift the world would be an amazing place where all species thrived together on a healthy rather than annihilated one another.
