Family is not about blood, it is about everything.
For everything is Family.

The photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs
when the polar bear wandered in, but…

It is time to unite for PEACE.
Love turns away rage and even nature is feeling the ‘shift’.
May we all be so kind and gentle to one another.

Cliff Young

All of the professional athletes knew that it took about 5 days to finish the race.

In order to compete, one had to run about 18 hours a day and sleep the remaining 6 hours.

The thing is, Cliff Young didn’t know that!

When the morning of the second day came,

everyone was in for another surprise.

Not only was Cliff still in the race, he had continued jogging all night.

Eventually Cliff was asked about his tactics for the rest of the race.

To everyone’s disbelief, he claimed he would run

straight through to the finish without sleeping.

Cliff kept running.

Each night he came a little closer to the leading pack.

By the final night, he had surpassed

all of the young, world-class athletes.

He was the first competitor to cross the finish line

and he set a new course record.

When Cliff was awarded the winning prize of $10,000,

he said he didn’t know there was a prize

and insisted that he did not enter for the money.

He ended up giving all of his winnings to several other runners,

an act that endeared him to all of Australia.

When ‘one’ does something without Fear,
What ends up happening are ‘miracles’, yet,
They are not miracles at all, this is only ‘natural’.

Meet Molly.
She’s a grey speckled pony who was abandoned by her owners
When Hurricane Katrina hit southern Louisiana .

She spent weeks on her own before finally being rescued
And taken to a farm where abandoned animals were stockpiled.

While there, she was attacked by a pit bull terrier and almost died.

Her gnawed right front leg became infected,

and her vet went to LSU for help,

but LSU was overwhelmed, and this pony was a welfare case.

You know how that goes.

But after surgeon Rustin Moore met Molly,

he changed his mind.

He saw how the pony was careful to lie down

on different sides so she didn’t seem to get sores,

and how she allowed people to handle her.

She protected her injured leg.

She constantly shifted her weight

and didn’t overload her good leg.

She was a smart pony with a serious survival ethic..

Moore agreed to remove her leg below the knee,

and a temporary artificial limb was built.

Molly walked out of the clinic and her story really begins there.

‘This was the right horse and the right owner,’ Moore insists.

Molly happened to be a one-in-a-million patient.

She’s tough as nails, but sweet,

and she was willing to cope with pain.

She made it obvious she understood that she was in trouble.

The other important factor, according to Moore,

is having a truly committed and compliant owner

who is dedicated to providing the daily care required

over the lifetime of the horse.

Molly’s story turns into a parable for life in post-Katrina Louisiana.

The little pony gained weight, and her mane finally felt a comb.

A human prosthesis designer built her a leg.

The prosthetic has given Molly a whole new life,

Allison Barca, D.V.M., Molly’s regular vet, reports.

And she asks for it.

She will put her little limb out, and come to you

And let you know that she wants you to put it on.

Sometimes she wants you to take it off too.

And sometimes, Molly gets away from Barca.

‘It can be pretty bad

When you can’t catch a three-legged horse,’ she laughs.

Most important of all, Molly has a job now.

Kay, the rescue farm owner, started taking Molly to shelters, hospitals,

nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers.

Anywhere she thought that people needed hope.

Wherever Molly went, she showed people her pluck.

She inspired people, and she had a good time doing it.

‘It’s obvious to me that Molly had a bigger role to play in life,’ Moore said.

‘She survived the hurricane, she survived a horrible injury,

and now she is giving hope to others.’

Barca concluded, ‘She’s not back to normal,

but she’s going to be better.

To me, she could be a symbol for New Orleans itself.’

This is Molly’s most recent prosthesis.

The photo on the right shows the ground surface that she stands on,

which has a smiley face embossed in it.

Wherever Molly goes, she leaves a smiley hoof print behind.

The Deer and the Rabbit

Posted in: Touching Your Heart by Pamela on September 29, 2008

These two species encapsulate so much…
You can just feel the connection they have for one another.
It is so beautiful. I want to cry when I see it,
For it reminds me of what I know life can be…
This is home…
Where man and animal are free.
We are a pure living energy
Respecting each others forms
Intelligently and mindfully.
So Peacefully.
