Everyone agrees that humans are more important than other living beings. It's because we are more complex, more intelligent, more sentient, capable of more complex behaviors and kinds of experiences than any of them.

You can easily confirm these statements by asking anyone, any of us.

Traditionally, we don't ask them, but maybe we're beginning to do so. They don't answer with words, but their meaning is clear enough for those of us who are interested in reading it.

In honor of St Francis, today has been dedicated to the animals.

MISSION OF WORLD ANIMAL DAY
To raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. Building the celebration of World Animal Day unites the animal welfare movement, mobilising it into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals. It's celebrated in different ways in every country, irrespective of nationality, religion, faith or political ideology. Through increased awareness and education we can create a world where animals are always recognised as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare.
