Incredibly, in spite of everything she has witnessed in the front-line of animal rescue, Lyn White from Animals Australia has managed to maintain an overwhelmingly positive view of humanity.
I watched her talk this week and seeing her express belief in the inherent goodness of the human race was inspiring.
Mum originally sent me the video link. She was so impressed by this talk that she has ordered the dvds to send out instead of Christmas cards this year. If you aren’t on mum’s mailing list, the link is below (1 hour 40 mins)
If you feel alone, or like life is pointless, you may find some hope and direction in Lyn’s message…the message of finding meaning by becoming the best you can be.
This week’s fantastic charity helps both people and animals on the path to becoming the best they can be.
Try not to cry (difficult!) while watching the following episode of ‘Castaways’, which chronicles another program of inmates training unwanted dogs (6 minutes).
It’s everybody all together that gives a damn that makes a difference
