Quote of the day

These apt words were uttered by one of the most profound women in history.

Today, I'm posting them as a shout-out to all the animal rescuers out there who can't turn their eyes away when they see a creature suffering. Even at their own peril.

In a line of work mottled by failures, it would be easier to give up. There are days when the endless cruelty sickens the soul and make you feel helpless. Like you aren't making a difference.

For the rescuers having a hard time today, and one in particular (you know who you are), I hope your heart finds peace and comfort. The animals thank you for everything you do for them. You make the world a gentler place.

"Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."

- Helen Keller
