A s we remain inside our snow globes this morning, the Earth seems to be showing us all the beauty she has to offer. Time is moving slower; families are headed outdoors to take hikes or bike and animals are peeking out of the forest to take an inch or two more of land for their families.
Keep 6 feet apart when standing in line!
Although times are certainly “uncertain”, the way we respond to COVID-19 will dictate what unfolds over the next few weeks or months. Let us all follow the advice given to us by the Governor and continue to practice social distancing, follow proper hygiene and disinfecting guidelines and remain calm.
Our relationship with animals needs to change.
As we reflect on how this pandemic began, perhaps we can look inward and challenge ourselves to make significant changes that could prevent this from happening again. Diseases that jump from animals to humans, zoonotic diseases, are not new. Avian (bird flus), Swine Flu, Ebola and other zoonotic influenza viruses are acquired through direct contact with infected animals or contaminated environments in which we force them to live. Perhaps COVID-19 is a wake-up call to the global community that our relationship with animals needs to change.
A kinder world could be the answer. A symbiotic relationship between non-human animals, human animals and our environment. In this chaos, the roadway to peace and harmony has never been clearer.
“To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
