    A Life Well Lived

    All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
    If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
    And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

    Sorry but life is not that simple, only a child would think so.
    For instance, your dog catches a rabbit with myxomatosis, the rabbit is already slowly dying and now has a punctured lung on top of this....What do you do?
    To leave the rabbit to die slowly of the injury with no assistance is cruel and causes harm
    To take the animal to the vets is a prolonged wait to be euthanised, causing harm
    To kill the animal humanely and quickly, while stopping the suffering sooner than every other option, requires you to do harm

    Re: A Life Well Lived

    I don't see that your post has much to do with the original, which concerns doing goodness and kindness and avoiding harming others. Regarding euthanasia, that's a difficult topic, but some would argue that euthanising an animal can (in extreme circumstances) be an act of kindness and love, not deliberate harming.
