ON BEHALF OF PLANTS

What makes we human beings to think that plants are inferior to us? They stay in one spot and from there itself they conduct their daily business. They make their own food to sustain themselves. They render themselves attractive enough to invite other organisms to help them continue their lineage. They provide shade and shelter, they purify the air, prevent erosion and provide sustenance for others. Can man do any of these? Just to feed himself, clothe, make shelter and continue his lineage, look how he grabs from Mother Earth! What about the untold harm his lifestyle causes to others that are part of creation. Ha! Talk about a baseless and foolish superiority complex. What is this I hear about being a Steward ?
