I’ve been thinking about this post since I read it last night, I think everyone should read it, it is that moving. We all need to fight this.

I’ve hung the missing posters –

stapled them to light poles.

Only the wind answers back

in haughty undertones.

Fool, it huffs, as it slaps my face,

Humanity is a runaway.

No use looking.

No one cares.

In this desolate terrain,

you’ll be soul searching in vain.

United States ranks 50 out of 55 developed countries in healthcare efficiency, life expectancy, and healthcare spending per capita (Bloomberg). Our senators and congressmen are covered under government health plans for life, yet they quibble about offering the sickest and poorest children the right to the same quality of care. Where are these people’s souls? I certainly can’t find them.

Muscular beast rocking back and forth on my lap, really too big to fit.  You are my stalwart friend yet fiendish antagonist.

Your claws rip my skin, you hog my bed, you trip me walking between my feet and stop mid stride to stretch causing me all sorts of discomfort and near fatal accidents.

Yet you seem to be always by my side, loving me steadfast with bites, claws, and purrs.

My Spitz you are my companion.  I curse you when you’re near and worry if you are not in the room.  Why must you be such a large cat?

Why do you act like that?
