So beautiful, so sad

Some say that animals don't have feelings or souls. I often wonder if they aren't more caring than some humans are toward one another considering the wars and conflicts around the world.

Blessings to you my friends
Very touching
This series of photos tells the suffering of bird shocked by his mate's fatal injury.
His mate is injured and her condition is fatal.
He brought her food and looked after her with love.
Then when she lay still, he tried to move her.
Realizing that she would never come back to him, he cried in anguish.
He stood beside her, calling out in grief.
Finally aware that she would never return, he just
stood beside her body for a long, long time.
The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to a leading French newspaper. The newspaper was completely sold out that day.Thousands of people across Europe and the US mourned for the little bird.

There have been 4 deer that we have seen in the mornings on the way to school. I noticed 3 dead ones on the Highway yesterday and this morning I saw 1 lone one looking around. It was really sad.

As of late, I've been quite stunned with the capabilities of humanity.

I loved this story.

So true.

On a different note, I am pretty sure there is some mexican food or italian food in our future?

Are we going to the movies tomorrow night?

Goodnesss, woman.
