To all of you everywhere – you who walk, crawl, fly and swim.
I’m sorry that you have to share this planet earth with humans. I apologize for the pain you endure at the hands of those humans who are cruel to you.
And I apologize for the pain you endure at the hands of those humans who may not deliberately try to hurt you, but who are so stupid, oblivious, self-absorbed, vain, selfish, thoughtless and careless that they hurt you or contribute to your abuse and exploitation anyway.
I am so sorry that you continually suffer at their hands. I wish I could give you a world of your own… a world where there were no humans to hurt you… a world where you could live your own life free from the cruelty, cowardice, lack of empathy and stupidity of human beings. But I can’t. So all I can do is tell you how sorry I am and let you know that there are many of us who do have a brain and a heart. We care and we are trying. We will never give up – not until you are free.
With all my love, respect, caring, admiration and awe of you,
