"How quickly will the animals forgive us. They will hold no resentment, demand no moment of silence, no memorial wall nor ceremony. Within a few seconds they will waive their honor and the memory of their tragedy, forgetting everything and placing their playful heads in our lap, waiting to be stroked.
And the ease of their forgiveness will only increase the extent of our shame. For we will know that the best of our violence was turned against those who would, starting tomorrow, starting even now, forgive us for everything and love us with no end."
