Complete Valentine Friend..
A friend is like a Valentine
She has a loving heart.
You share with her your feelings;
Her listening is an art.
A friend is like a Valentine;
Like candy, she is sweet.
And that description fits you, friend;
You make my life complete!

Friendship Valentine Poem
Friendship is a wondrous thing;
There's so much happiness it can bring.
I’m really glad that you’re my friend,
And I hope our friendship will never end.
Happy Valentines Day friend!
By Karl Fuchs
Glad that India led the way; too bad we haven't met the standards of India and show we value the lives of our animals.
The little cares that fretted me,
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields above the sea,
Among the winds that play,
Among the lowing of the herd,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.
The foolish fears of what might pass
I cast them all away
Among the clover-scented grass,
Among the new-mown hay,
Among the hushing of the corn,
Where drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born-
Out in the fields with God.
Out In The Fields

China Crushes Illegal Ivory Stockpile
China started 2014 off in a big way by crushing six tons of confiscated ivory in Dongguan on January 6. In late 2013, AWF, along with partners WildAid and Save the Elephants called on China to raise awareness about elephant poaching and reduce the demand for ivory. AWF's CEO Patrick Bergin said, "We commend the Chinese government for taking this important first step and hope it signals their sincere and growing commitment to help end the elephant slaughter in Africa."
