This one is self-gratification at its worst. It really shouldn’t be on the blog and I should be more disciplined than to add this on. But I just couldn’t resist.
It’s Election day in the US. We, Canadians, have been watching the race for the last year and a bit and now, finally, it’s going to be over. It has been a roller coaster with many ups and downs. Watching, from this side of the border, it’s been something else. Now, the day, it seems that tensions are as high as they have ever been and the polls say it could go either way.
I am no political expert and my little blog has no place sticking its nose into this business, so my message has be short.
My hope is that this election, no matter who is elected, brings prosperity and peace for the US.
Check it out. Jeff Longo who found a dying baby squirrel and instead of ignoring her, he rescued her and made a friend for life. Love the picture-by-picture story!
I just heard about the terrorist attacks in Paris. My thoughts and heart go out to all the people of Paris and France.
Let’s hope that one day peace reaches all parts of the world.

So do humans…

That’s a baby owl. Not a puppy.
This one adopted ducklings.
This one is a pigeon and a baby squirrel.
The examples go on and on.
All of them are animals being compassionate.
Humans can do it too.
And when we do, it’s a beautiful thing.
What a beautiful, beautiful message!
My good friend and excellent writer Teagan R Geneviene sent me this today and I couldn’t fail to share it with you so apt it is.
We Are All Human
As the population gets bigger and bigger, the world gets smaller and smaller. People of various specialties, and within that different levels of experience, inevitably bump into one another. The thought of comparison and competition can take some down a negative path. But why let that take hold?
We are all human. Imagine if all of us as humans, at the most basic level believed in one simple construct. We are here on this planet to support each other, and to hold each other up.
