What Do You Really See When You Look At An Animal?

Justin Van Kleeck, the writer of this article, asks everyone to answer a question that many do not want to deal with: "When you look at an animal, what do you see?" Van Kleeck wants each of us to look deep down into our hearts and soul and truly confront what we feel toward animals. He says, "I see a mystery, a miracle, a manifestation of life. I see the magic of a living being going about its essential task of living, of being what it is by nature. I see something so precious that for me to make it suffer, or even worse to take its life (directly or indirectly), would be the highest act of selfishness. With or without a god to judge, I feel within myself the destructiveness of doing harm and the disrespect of using others for my own welfare.
