I apologize if some of you don't care for Daily Kos, but this story came through today in their summary and I read it, I read it all. This is what we are losing through our short sighted approach to public education. See first comment, please.

In February 2014, I posted a story about Anna Breytenbach, the Animal Whisperer who made an amazing video about her work with a very angry panther. Link to that story in first comment. Now she is trying to create an elephant sanctuary.

A personal blog post - that I need share. See first comment.

It tells the story of one veteran's struggle to find himself and the devastating effect that had on his wife and children. It is worth watching - but you may need a Kleenex or two. I did not. Why in the first comment.

This is just a really neat little feel good story, with a happy ending. Some fool was obviously trying to get rid of these two, but luckily there were a couple of heroes in the vicinity. :^)
A Biittersweet Story of Selfless Love

This is just a video, but it touched my heart as I visited the Hunger Site on my daily rounds. You can do so much good there, even if occasionally your heart breaks at what happens in the world.

Offbeat  (tags: government, elections, bushadministration, bush, dishonesty, news, politics, congress )

While Hillary Clinton's use of personal email during her time as Secretary of State deserves scrutiny, it now is clear that the media need turn their eye on Republicans who did exactly the same thing - including some of her loudest critics.
