There’s an important lesson that all kids learn from young.

And that is the importance of sharing with other kids. But we soon forget this as we grow up and by the time we’re independent adults, we tend to like doing whatever we want to do, no matter who it hurts and what the consequences are.

The saying, “caring is sharing” is something I think even adults need to learn and live out. We only have one earth, so let’s share the space with each other. Let’s share our water, money, resources and land. Let’s share the sun and the oceans with humans and every animal in existence.

When we share, we care

It may sound cheesy, I know, but it’s also true. Sharing with others, human and animals, shows that we care. And don’t you think the world needs more of that?

But if we don’t share, then the world can suddenly seem a whole lot smaller.

I mean, imagine sharing a dorm room with someone whom you absolutely hate. Well, it’s like this but on a much larger scale. Countries can’t stand other countries. Religious people don’t know why secular people exists. Then fights happen. The extreme case is war and death.

Let’s care for our animals. Charles Darwin is famous for his theories on evolution, his findings on natural selection and his ‘survival of the fittest’ theory. But humans and other animals are so inter connected, and humans have so much more control of the world than animals do, that what we do greatly affect all other life on earth. Animals have gone extinct and many more are endangered all because of humans.

Whether we like it or not, it’s no longer ‘survival of the fittest’, a world where animals live and survive independent of humans. They need us and they depend on us. Actually, we depend on them too. After all, it’d be a bit lonely if the only form of life as we know it, in this universe, were humans.
