Signed. We humans gain far more that is priceless and transformational by caring for, learning from and living in harmony with animals than by what is achieved from hurting, killing and commoditizing them. Animals in partnership with humans enrich our lives beyond gold, they teach us to be better humans and help heal us when we're broken.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.
