Despite her age and arthritis, Lucy still loves a day at the park. She doesn't run nearly as much, but she does trot often enough to get some exercise and then she rests. When she was younger, we had to force her to to sit and rest but now she seems to know when to rest herself. She is still a thing of beauty with her long floofy hair flying in the breeze. She has always had a rather strange sitting posture and it makes her look much larger than she really is.
Sitting in the soft moss at the park.
We were all stunned at the shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue this week. It was a hate crime and 11 people were killed. The people were gathered for a bris of a baby boy. The event shocked and saddened many of us. The President of the United States indicated that outcome would have been far better if there had been an armed guard at the synagogue. An armed guard at a bris? Seriously?
I leave you with a quote from the late Haile Selassie:
"We must become bigger than we have been
More courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook.
We must become members of a new race,
Overcoming petty prejudice,
Owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations
But to our fellow men within the human community."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK, EVERYONE
IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY...VOTE
AND REMEMBER WE ARE NOT THE ONLY PEOPLE ON OUR PLANET
