Word 'human' also means 'kind' and 'compassionate'

From the North Pole to the South Pole, and everywhere in between our planet pulsates with life. To study the extraordinary diversity of life that makes our planet a visual delight, biologists have classified all living things into five different biological groups called kingdoms, one of which is animal kingdom.
This biological kingdom contains about ten million species and encompasses creatures as diverse as sea cucumbers, jellyfish, insects and birds. Animals can range from being tiny creatures which are just a collection of few cells to giant whales that have tongues as heavy as an elephant! From thumb-sized bee hummingbirds to hundred feet long blue whales, the animal kingdom contains an array of fascinating species of varied shapes, sizes, and colours.
Life, which makes our planet unique in the universe, begin in the oceans millions of years ago and slowly journeyed to land, spreading to all the corners of our planet, including places barely touched by humanity. The first vertebrates to walk on land were amphibians. But they weren't the most successful animals to have walked the planet; this feat belongs to one intelligent species: Homo sapiens or human beings.
Emerging in the continent of Africa thousands of years ago early human beings set off on the road to civilization. And, over a long period of time this nomadic hunter-gatherers transformed into technologically advanced modern human beings who have conquered land, sea, air and have even left footprints on the surface of moon!
Though phenomenally successful, human beings are as much a part of the animal kingdom as doves or whales or other creatures on earth. The wonderful life forms that dwell in the oceans, birds that chirp in our gardens and all other creatures that make our planet so full of life are our wild friends. And we should love and them. But, not just because we belong to the same biological kingdom or share the same planet. Let gentle feeling of affection and care for animals spring in your hearts from one simple fact that we are humans. and the word human also means 'kind' and 'compassionate'.
