And Just Like That...

A dog needing rescue just happened into my day - the very day after my "Strays" post. With the help of two young boys, a sweet little elderly couple, and my husband, we reunited "Princess" with her humans on September 11th.
On the anniversary of a day when most of us felt horror, helplessness, and fear, I was reminded of how we were also witness to great acts of kindness. When something so ugly happened in our world, so many people found it in them to reach out to others. There were great acts of courage, faith, and selflessness. Strangers embraced. Families flocked to their churches. Blood donors stood in lines for hours, hoping to be of use. Like the rest of you, I remember it like it was yesterday.
On a day when the world seemed to bow down in sorrow, it was soon easy to see that although there may be those in our world who breed hate and destruction, by far, the majority of our human brothers and sisters are good and kind at the core.
And Thank God for that.
