Gideon’s Challenge


Even the smallest
of creatures
has its place
and purpose in life.
The key is to
that just because
is vastly different
than you
does not reduce
their value.

This is what worries me the greatest when I think of all the species around the world in the throes of going extinct.  I worry because each life has value and purpose… and when a creature goes extinct, this purpose is snuffed out.  What happens when a purpose that holds within it the balance of the life we know and something else is then snuffed out… and that balance then shifts and the scales topple?
