I just want to say...

This morning I posted a happy and silly post so I hate to now change topics into something more sullen but it is on my mind and well this blog is my outlet, forgive me as I tend to ramble....
Something particular as struck me but there is alot more to this post than just one thing! Do you ever read something or see something and now it is burned into your mind and you can not let it go? I don't mean like a gross picture or something personal so please know that. I am also not saying at all that all the people in Japan are not as important as what I am going to talk about because if you know me then you know I am glued to the TV and if I could I would go and  help these people. They are ALL in my prayers. SO please take that disclaimer.

Now, we all know I have a soft ....more than soft spot for animals and I just saw an article with a picture about the animals of this disaster and I can't let it go. The story showed a picture of a badly injured dog and his dog friend who has refused to leave his side. They go on to say that since the flood waters vanished this dog is holding strong at his friends side and refuses to leave. (NO I will not post the picture) I am not sure why but this story seems to rip my heart out.....it makes me realize how special animals are it fills me with love but at the same time it fills me with such sadness. I wonder why can't someone help the dog? Will they both die? How many other animals are stuck, hurting and are going to die alone. Yes....I am awful and I hope you are not scared as I have given you a glimpse into my mind.
Another example is the book The Veganist I just finished a week or so ago and one particular story about a cow at the slaughter house is literally burned into my brain and as hard as I try I can't let it go. It is so awful I will not even speak the words.
Lastly, when someone tells me a story about an animal and even though they will say "oh it has a happy ending"....well no please do not tell me, I do not want to know the unhappy part before the happiness begins!
Why....why? Does our mind bring these things to light? Why can't I forget? Why do I keep torturing myself with things like this? I do not know.

And that my friends is my random heavy post..........

when you care about something, you will never be able to let things like that go. It's ok to be worried and all that stuff, it's a natural thing.

I saw the same picture of the Spaniel dog and now they are showing a video of it and its white friend. GOOD NEWS....they dogs have been rescued but breaks my heart also. I care about the people but its the animals that rip my heart out. I don't know why i'm that way....I just am.

Your a good egg Nicole.
