If we let the Endangered Species Act fall by the wayside, we are in big trouble! When the animals are gone, our own extinction is not far behind.

Animals are so very important (and should be to everyone) for if we are quiet and watch them, they have much to teach us about ourselves and about the world we live in. If we lose them through our own stupidity, then we may as well sign our own death warrants. All it appears that is important to us is bringing everyone and everything under our domain. It is not their fault we have encroached on their habitats and cannot practice what we preach. Our population is increasing by leaps and bounds and our planet cannot sustain it. We need to stop breeding like flies, but it certainly does not mean we have to gut the Endangered Species Act, and get rid of every animal on earth just to make room for our miserable selves. Just practice birth control for God's sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What speaks volumes about Congress and anyone else who needs convincing, cajoling, pleaded and begged with is the fact that we should even have to make a case for keeping this very important Act in force. That's the scary part. Why should we have to do this? Why wouldn't anyone want to protect our planet? Why wouldn't anyone care about any species who depend on us and who cannot speak for themselves. It doesn't look good for us, does it? Why cannot you ask your Congressmen to do something different for a change, exercise integrity, intelligence, common sense, empathy and compassion. Then when you go to "The Other Side", which we all inevitably must, maybe then when you are looking at your lives in review, whoever stands beside you and judges you will cut you some slack, do you think? Just maybe. And won't it be worth it? The animals are so wonderful and they were put here for us to cherish and protect and learn from, not to use and abuse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm ashamed to be a member of the human species much of the time.
