Me : So Bear… We’ve read stories about circuses and animals, right?
Bear : Yeah…
Me : What do you think the animals are like?
Bear : I think they look kinda sad, because they are trapped in the cages.
Me : Oh…
Bear : I’m sorry I said that.
Me : But why? I like it when you are honest. I like it when you express yourself.
Bear : I’m just sorry because I think I made you sad when I said that.
My smally dolly is growing up…
Assalamu alaykum sis, Masha’Allaah I’m so glad to see you’ve also got a blog, looks very nice Allaahumma baarak feek.
Aaw, that’s so cute, subhanAllaah how a child notices these things, and adults just look past it. I also feel very sad for these animals, I remember seeing a video on you tube a while back, it was about a whale called Lolita, who was being used for entertainment in sea world I think in Miami, or somewhere in America, it told the story how she had been taken from her family etc… it was very sad. Just made me think about the other animals which are being used in zoos/circuses the whole, or almost the whole of their life, it’s so sad.
Aww, that was soo cute mashaAllah. It really is amazing how compassionate lil kids are…
Animals in zoos and circuses are incarcerated.
Masha Allah, your little one is very compassionate.
