Despite the record number of manatees killed by the cold in 2010, wildlife officials are encouraged by the most recent manatee count, in which spotters tallied nearly 5,000 sea cows along Florida's coasts. That's up more than 1,000 from the 2009 count,

Someday, the lion will lie down with the lamb.

The child shall play with the rattlesnake unharmed
The rehabilitated tyrant will lovingly hold the orphan's bottle.

Power will be measured in degrees of kindness.

We will wake from the dream.
Brother Wolf, Sister Tiger, Mother Earth, teen prostitute, crack baby ..........
take hope. We are changing your destiny
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethern,
ye have done it unto me"
