Given his crippling disability of blindness, it would have been easier for him to become a recluse, to hide and avoid contact with the bewildering world of the sighted. But he didn't. He offered his love to everyone who sought his company, and trusted

Pierre was very fortunate to have such a wonderful home to finish out his life. He knew unconditional love. To him, unless you proved otherwise, he thought of you as a friend and beautiful as well. There was no differential in his life. He loved you just because you were you.

What a beautiful tribute to a very special calf. God Bless your soul Pierre. I wish I could have known you. You mission here on earth has been completed, and you will be missed. Sounds like you touched many hearts, including mine.

May you rest in blissful peace. A very true tribute to show how 'incapabilities' do not exist. Did Pierre show love and receive love ? That is indicated by the reactions of those that have chosen to read this story. You, Pierre, are a true courageous symbol of what we should aspire to achieve. Thank-you for making this story available to us.

Pierre was a beautiful soul who brought the light to so many! Humble though he was, Pierre possessed an inner beauty and peace that most humans will never know! I particularly loved the following lines from this eloquent and poignant story:

"If, without our protection, Pierre would not have survived in a world where beings like him are butchered to please depraved human appetites, without Pierre's light -- without the light of beings like him -- we ourselves would be neither fully alive, nor fully human.

Pierre was born blind. He had no access to and no memory of light, yet he was one of the brightest lights, he radiated light, he illuminated the world, and our lives, with his own life. Pierre, whose heart stopped 20 years too soon, restored the heart of everyone who entered his world to full, brilliant life."
