Question #1: Would you pull the wings off a butterfly for a 12-month trip around the world?
I don't really want or need to know your answer, but before you continue reading, think a moment about how long it took you to come up with your answer...... Now... please continue reading because there is more to this post (of course).
Question #2: Would you pull the wings off a cockroach for a 12-month trip around the world?
And so my friends.... this metaphorical situation makes me wonder about where we draw the line....
Because cockroaches can carry microbes that exacerbate asthma and cause allergic reactions in some people, is it okay to kill them? Because they are not as pretty as butterflies does it make it "more okay" to kill them? How do you determine what makes it okay to kill the cockroach? Because you don't like them?
Until I wander and wonder again... would love to hear your thoughts....
