However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for everyone. In today’s day and so-called modern age, there is still so much discrimination within social circles, and society in general, based solely on how we look. Just take one look at the news and you’ll see it, clear as crystal. It’s truly heartbreaking.
This discrimination, unfortunately, doesn’t just stop at humans. Often, animals are abandoned or abused when they don’t look quite like what they’re “supposed” to. All too often, puppies or kittens are left to die in a remote area just because there is something a bit physically different about them, despite being totally healthy otherwise.
Do these living beings, human or not, really deserve to die just because they don’t look “normal”?
Whipper, a sweet green parakeet, was abandoned as a baby. He was totally healthy, but he was born with a genetic mutation that makes his beautiful feathers thin and wispy. Luckily, Julie Hayward of Winton, New Zealand, saw past that strangeness and took him under her wing.
