This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. I watch persons a lot. I kind of have to do a lot of watching because Brickle likes to do a lot of watching. And I go by his example.
When you watch, you learn. It’s when you bark all the time and you can’t hear or see anything for yourself that you you miss out. And I’m seeing some things I like. Some things i don’t like, I question. Like people and ant hills.
Now don’t get me wrong, get me right. I don’t want to step on an ant hill because they bite. They also like to steal my snacks. But I also don’t want to step on them because actually, there is no reason to. So why do it?
I saw a person stepping directly on an ant hill on purpose. There was a way around it. There wasn’t a reason to step on them. They just wanted to. And I wondered why. Why do persons hurt things? Just because?
If you don’t know all of the ways ants help us, ask Brickle. He’s had many years to think about it. And he says that everything plays a role in the world. It’s the persons that complain when they destroy it.
If someone steps on an ant hill for no reason, what other things do they do that are mean or neglectful? If they thought about not stepping on the ants to be kind, wouldn’t they see other ways that they could be kind too?
Wouldn’t they think a little more about others and a little less about themselves?
Displaying kindness may not be something we were taught. We may not have had an example. But you can be an example now.
Don’t step on living things. Don’t neglect living things. Let others live their lives, no matter how big or how small. They all deserve that.
