Why shouldn’t we visit the zoo?

One of the tricky questions about zoos is whether they are good for animals, mainly because like prisons, not all zoos are alike. There are prisons where inmates have their own toilet, shower, TV, and even a yard.  Some giraffes have two or three rooms, a lounge, a garden, and a dining room. Giraffes in their zoo apartments might appear to have a lot of space, but they would rather replace it for a slice of freedom.

How vegan children’s books can inspire a kind world?

Adults usually give children lessons on how to be kind and how to treat living creatures. It is expected of adults to be wiser and set an example for children by their own behavior.

Imagine a world without competitions

There is a wise Chinese proverb that clearly demonstrates how a competitive spirit is destructive: When an archer hits a target, not expecting a reward, he uses the fullness of his ability; When he hits to win the gold medal, he becomes nervous, blind, sees the two goals, and is all alone.

The strong need to win draws the energy that was needed to shoot.

12 things we could learn from Amish parents

The Amish are known for their simple living, not watching TV or using the internet, wearing plainclothes, riding in horse carriages and being very religious. It looks like they live a more primitive lifestyle than their surrounding cultures. It also looks like they got stuck in the past, but it seems they still live very happily.
