      Toronto, Canada

There is too much animal cruelty happening in the world and we need to stop it. We need to teach children when they are young to respect other living creatures, and remind them when they finish school. We know people who hurt animals often hurt people too, and our prisons are over-crowded, so people need to be taught COMPASSION.

Hon. Liz Sandals, Minister of Education
Introduce a new course called "COMPASSION" for Grade 1 and Grade 12.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This is needed so desperately. Teach, train compassion to animals. Those who have compassion for animals will have compassion for people..

      If we are to evolve into a truly caring species ...Empathy for all living beings must be shared...Kindness needs to be a way of life....Otherwise we are a dead end species

      But we need to teach compassion for ALL others animals, like cows, pigs, chickens... we kill more than 70 BILLION lives per year... we´re a Moral Squizofrenic Society: we "love" some animals and kill others...

      Animals are for us to take care of and not abuse. They were given to us by God to take care of.

      I am a human being and I love animals. A course on compassion will last a lifetime if taught early!
