I just watched a video about dogs being used for bait in dog fighting, where the American Strays Project rescued two Pit bulls in this video. The Pit bulls were starved, malnourished, injured, scared, mouths taped shut and abandoned to die. The rescuers in the video said it was just kids that were doing this to the dogs.
When I heard this I asked myself, Where the HELL did they learn to be so heartless and cruel?
If we don’t care to teach our kids to have compassion, be a responsible and present parent, and be a positive example to ALL children, we end up with this:
Paris Terrorist Attacks
Brussels Terrorist Bombings
Pit bull used as bait for dog fighting
Teen Dating Violence
Timothy McVeigh: Oklahoma City Bomber
James Holmes: Aurora, Colorado Theater Shooter
Kids learn to Hate from Adults. They’re not born knowing how to Hate.
Adults can teach compassion to children.
Adults ask yourself, What have I done today that was hateful, racists, violent, disrespectful and what did my behavior teach my child? Then ask yourself, Would I want someone to treat my child the way I just behaved?
What kind of world do we want to live in? What kind of world do we want our kids to live in? Ask yourself that everyday.
Change can happen. Be part of the Change. Be Compassionate. Teach Compassion.
