A Letter from One Mother to Another

I hope the author does not mind me sharing this. If you have not come across it please do read.

Let us all gather and do what we can to actively make a difference- charity, shelter, volunteering, raising awareness through WORDS like the author of this post and not by circulating images that are unlikely to touch hardened hearts that have been desensitized to the endless graphic pictures that appear in the media. Every Little WILL Eventually Help. Take the first step.
