The Storm

Friday night, there was a storm that harassed all of Ontario.  My mother's biggest phobia are storms, where my dad gets excited and watches them wide eyed and crazy (with the front door wide open). Stupid me sat by the window playing computer games ignoring the loud noises and flickering lights in the sky.

Luckily, my brother was paying full attention to everyone's surroundings. It all happened so fast, I wasn't even sure what was going on. This is how I remember it. My brother had a bad feeling and started wrestling my father away from the door and slammed it shut just as the lightning hit my neighbor's tree. Suddenly, the house shook and the glass of our front door shattered. My brother came running to my rescue and wheeled me to the safety of our hallway.

The scary part came after it was over. There was a giant tree on top of our house and there was no way in or out. Where I was sitting, we found that the tree was 1 inch from going right through my head like a spear. The tree put a hole in our roof and the ceiling above my spot, cracked. All I can say is Thank God it wasn't any worse. I certainly have some awesome guardian angels.

My brother hopped a couple fences in the backyard to get out and take some pictures. I should also mention we are no longer trapped but are still waiting on all the repairs and the tree is still on our lawn, all chopped up.

Remembrance Of 9/11 & Our 4 Legged Heroes


James Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center. He is blind so he has a golden retriever named Daisy. 

After the plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he let Daisy go, out of an act of love. She darted away into the darkened hallway. 

Choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke James was just waiting to die. About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes back along with James' boss, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112 

On her first run of the building, she leads James, James' boss, and about 300 more people out of the doomed building. 

But she wasn't through yet, she knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against James' wishes she ran back in the building. 

On her second run, she saved 392 lives. Again she went back in. During this run, the building collapses. James hears about this and falls on his knees into tears. 

Against all known odds, Daisy makes it out alive, but this time she is carried by a firefighter. "She led us right to the people, before she got injured" the fireman explained. 

Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she saved 967 lives. Daisy is the first civilian Canine to win the Medal of Honor of New York City. 

I hope you enjoyed this story. I thought it was terrific. Pass it on to all animal lovers ... Remember love is to be shared to be multiplied.. 

This brings me to an off topic question of mine. How can any religion say that dogs don't have souls?
