There is a picture of the guy holding the baby giraffe in order to weigh it, and when I saw it, I started thinking about how we view animals. What if we viewed ourselves as the guardians of all animals? A friend of mine told me that the Masai believe that God gave them all the animals on earth to take care of (full disclosure, he was from a rival tribe so I cannot speak for the validity of this claim) and that they will even take other people's animals in order to care for them better. Regardless of if this is true or not. I think it is an amazing way to consider animals.
What if our duty to the universe was to care for the earth that we were given?
What if we believed that our whole reason for existing was to protect the creatures of the earth?
This series is kind of all of those thoughts...
