I am part of organization in which I am lucky to be part off, I was introduced by a women who is part of the organization and today I had a meeting which I didn’t need to attend too but I decided too. I was promoted recently to higher position and had a say about what ideas to follow. I am aware that within the organization there is a lot of human right projects and many projects to help out children in third world countries. As being promoted I was called upon to the front and speak out an idea which could help better improve this world.
Speaking affront of three hundred people I was feeling a little nervous, but I was thinking to myself do you still got this? I thought what could be something that has never been said before and could improve the world even if its minor? I said animals, a man spoke up and said what about animals? Animals are beings put down all across the United States daily because we need more room and have ” Little resources”. I believe we could find another way and measurement and save animals. It isn’t fair that animals are being put down in such way; they are beings and understand. If you look at an animal being put down you see sadness in their eyes. As we have souls so do animals, everything has a purpose and a place here. Animals protect us and we put them down when we don’t need them or because they don’t look cute? Would you like to be put down because you become “Useless”. They understand when you are sad, happy, and mad and try to cheer you up. They could become your companions and many of you have pets don’t you? ( I was rather surprised how well I said this). I knew instantly I found my drive back.
The people were rather moved and asked how can we do this? We could start in California start building sanctuaries in major cities in where animals are rescued and brought there to be taken care off and adopted. They should be seen as perfect and equal to any other animal regardless of how they are. We will start in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Fransisco and if there no room in the cities we could make them in neighboring cities or counties. We would save millions and the expenditure could be a non-profit. Then see the success rate and expand to other 49 States and lead by example and have families adopt the animals. We have to see animals as equal as human beings and not mistreat them or see them for less. I got a round of applause and three ideas are always chosen for as long as I have been here. My idea was picked and the project will be under way by June.
Later I was eating and a homeless individual started talking to me before I sat down. I asked him to sit with me and he appreciated it. I could see he was hungry so I gave him half my food, he told me I am a good friend. I laughed and told him thanks. We had a short talk and I asked him for his wisdom in life? He told me ” Treat everyone as equal regardless of skin, religion, or how they look, we are all the same”. I smiled and felt this humbleness of him and I asked him if enjoyed the food. He answered off course there not that many nice people in the world, I smiled and said you just have to open your eyes a little more. (Laughter from both of us).
Regardless of who you are man, women, in between, ethnicity, color we shouldn’t discriminate. You would be surprised what you could learn from other people, at the end we work better when we actually work together regardless of who you are. It’s rather ignorant to put someone down because they are a certain way. Open your eyes a little more and you will see better.
