save me...

are you my mother...?

save me...

maldivian children ought to be taught to be kind to animals... but it won't happen unless we, as adults, lead them by example... in one island i've seen grown men amusing little kids with their key-tags of live, newly hatched chicks... even in Male' we're increasingly seeing rare, exotic birds being kept as pets... chained for most of the day, and often caged... i personally know of a few cases where the birds ended up dying after a few days/weeks, mostly due to bad care or treatment....

keeping these birds in such conditions and claiming to love them, in my opinion, is like bombing for peace... or having sex for virginity....

are you my mother...

It's sad that we humans think so much of ourselves and value other living things less. We really need to re-educate ourselves. We can't go on being so species-centric. We humans are NOT the center of the Universe.
