Moral inferiority

Making a trip to the zoo has been on the “things to do in Philadelphia bucket list” and we finally went yesterday. It was amazing to see these animals… but I’m still not sure how I feel about zoos. Especially after seeing the gorillas. Gorillas should not live in cages.

I agree about zoos. We have a membership so Julian can learn and see all of these fascinating creatures but I can't help but feel horrible that we cage these fascinating creature. The only way to truly observe wild animals is in the wild at a distance.

I totally agree.

That was awesome! Probably one of the more interesting reads in awhile.

At the yoga studio where we practice there is a statue of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals.

I like that idea, Adam. I want a statue of St. Francis! I wonder if he was a vegetarian?
