Competitions, to the best of my knowledge are rarely fair, I suppose it depends on your unique perspective in any given event as to what you deem fair or unfair.
Unless this is one of your rare exceptions, it's a sad commentary that you're supporting an unfair competition involving kids.
I think the Be Kind Belize program has brought a whole new perception of animals to our community. I am definitely seeing a shift in attitudes towards animals that include concern and respect for the welfare of animals here on the Caye.
This is good. Very good in fact. It is sad the many animals, including pets, that are poorly treated. Any effort to improve this situation has my support.
I am yet again dismayed at how some people can't resist the urge to put others down, others that give their hearts, souls, energy, time and money into broadening our kids horizons and who take the time to know our kids, not just on a cursory level but know about their lives, their families and their hopes and dreams.
I certainly didn't put anyone down. I simply shared my opinion of a competition based on morality which won't change a whit of what BeKindBelize is doing, effect the outcome of voting, or the learning experience (good or bad) the children get from this effort.
Your children's experiences sound good and I hope it is true for all the children.
