Literature
Ice Cream
Everyone writes poems about emotions and fears
And one day I said, "I want to write a poem about
Ice cream."
About Dilly Bars on the drive from Tucson to Phoenix
The Dairy Queen across the highway from the ostrich farm
With the dust devil's raging by
About soft serve cones at the Desert Museum
Always Twist. Never Vanilla.
On all those hot Saturday afternoons
Watching mountain goats sleep in the shade
A poem about Friday nights after pizza
A different flavor every time
And eating straight from the carton at Dad's
While netflix plays on the wii
And sitting on the rooftop watching the stars
Ice cream bar in hand
About the store by Big Lake
Where I always got the cookie ice cream smash
Ate it on the way back to camp
Every single time.
Gelato at the Stanley Hotel
The worst I've ever had
Talking in hushed voices about ghosts and bravery and
"Oh that's so bogus"
And then there was the Gelato at Parisi's
Caramel
Sea salt
After a wonderful, stuffing dinner
The mini Ben & Jerry's at Fry's
"Pleas

No it isn't, you have yet to provide evidence for either altruistic interactions between non-human animals of different species or for your idea that people suffer more from disease or genetic disorders now, and by evidence I mean scientific evidence. I want to see peer reviewed papers that you think support your claim, not telling me to look on YouTube or trying to get me to buy a book. Being skeptical is not the same as having my head in the sand.

There are many times animals have helped other species.
See lots of reports of human activity that is very admirable,
but if I had to judge humans on a individual basis, they all 
come out as needing to be culled. Not a good trait on my part:( (Sad)

So you think all individuals should be culled? I'd say that's rather mean to say the least - you have no one you care about? sad.
Feeling that way is certainly not a good trait to have, but that is a bad thing about you, not a bad thing about the human race 
Please provide an example of a time when a non-human animal has helped another non human animal of another species (and in a way that can be counted as altruistic, ie the helper is not just 'helping' in order to gain something for themselves)

just look on youtube, there are hundreds of altruistic animals :) (Smile)  You might say it is just hormones etc. and you may well be
right, but that applies to humans as we are part of the animal kingdom.
I do care about several humans but do see  infantilism coming in very strongly which is indicative of species 
coming to the end of its useful life. Maybe mother nature will be kind and cull us like we cull over populations of
other animals to make them healthy (e.g. foxes)
You are right, I am a very sad person:( (Sad), I am also quite old and in my life-time have seen a speeding up of change
in disease and genetic disorders and it scares the s--t  out of me
