Helping fellow humans or animal friends is a wonderful thing to do. Feeling and showing compassion is a true human gift that gives us purpose and meaning in life. I feel that it’s society at its best when humans help each other without relying on government. Buying someone in need a warm drink or nourishing food or donating to a local food bank are positive actions that help all involved. Those with plenty can be there for those desperate enough to have to ask for help.
Similarly with animals, as their guardians, it is our duty to care for them. There are plenty of dogs and cats in rescue centres that would love to be walked or stroked. Going along to lend a hand and be with animals will take your mind far away from normal city humdrum.
