The Value of Cecil the Lion Matters
My thoughts on the killing of Cecil the Lion and the outrage that some feel that human lives (especially black lives) don't receive as much attention: I don't there is anything wrong for having compassion for any form of life. There is no reason to not stand up and be disgusted by this jerks actions. Many people are having an emotional response. That is not to say that human lives are not important, but all lives are important. Animals don't play into society's race, cultural norms and politics, but also deserve to be protected. The are alive, just like humans. Sometime we have to remember the value of all lives, just not our own. The man is a serial animal killer and that's disgusting to me.
