Life is a gift. Honour that.

Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar. -Bradley Millar

A person’s a person, no matter how small. Or, flipping it, remembering that humans are mammalian animals, an animal’s an animal, no matter how small.

There’s a very religiously devout person I know and it really shook me up inside that she had zero problem stepping on ants or letting her kids step on ants. Life is precious, no matter the package it comes in.
