“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”
- Albert Einstein
I found this quote to be a powerful reminder of the importance of having an open heart to others; an understanding of differences; a love of peace for all. And to top it all off, to include the less fortunate, including animals big and small.
I hear a lot in the news of someone taping a dog’s snout shut to stop them from barking or doing other atrocities. Or you hear about another toddler being left inside a hot car. You have to think; is this the world I want to have?
Most people want a better world for their children… and for themselves. Thank you for all the patience and care put into every day.
So, why don’t we start with ourselves and work our way to letting others into our hearts, sharing this freedom Einstein mentions to reach out to all living things? Then, we’d be proud to call this world beautiful.
