Be it me, you, or a huge elephant or a small ant, we are all living beings though we differ in size, shape, and form. I’d like to quote the example of bubbles flowing in a stream of water, which is their abode. No matter how big or small the bubble is, once they break, they begin to merge with the flowing water. That’s how life is! We may all look different, speak different languages, lead different lifestyles but these differences exist only when we do. Once we leave our physical self, our mortal remains become a part of our home, the Earth. That’s where we all belong.
Human beings often talk about helping other beings but when in danger, our first instinct is to protect ourselves by either running away from it or perhaps harm the other being as a means of self-defense. There are numerous animal welfare organizations, PETA being the most well-known one that believes that any living being should not be harmed no matter what the circumstances are. At the end of the day, the idea of harming someone in order to protect ourselves is debatable but I believe every living being, animals, birds, insects have the right to live on this planet. What if the Coronavirus was a living thing, would we hesitate to kill it too?
