In a survey, the naturalist and author Brenda Peterson found that 80 percent of children's dreams center on animals, whereas only about 20 percent of adult dreams still include animals. She suggests that perhaps we need not only wake people up about how people relate to animals, but also bring them back to their birthright as original dreamers. There can be no doubt that children's vitality and their personal and lifelong commitments that are motivated by compassion and love will make this a better world for all.
