It was a sad day today, remembering fifty years ago when President Kennedy died. There was a somber feel about this Friday; it was cloudy and grey outside. The more I thought about it, my sadness began to turn to anger… anger that a person can take another person's life with a gun. It's just too easy. To destroy a life, to destroy a family, it's just too easy.
Anyway, I was trying to think of a way to lift my mood. This was my answer. To turn to the creatures in my life that are innocent, that depend on me for food and shelter. They lift my mood and help the sadness and the anger be forgotten.
