    Default This is what I'm talking about!! This touched my heart, hope it touches yours.

    An old man was going for a walk, when he noticed a little boy feeding a thin, shaggy looking dog with bits of bread. He went up to the boy and asked him why he was sharing his bread with the dogs.
    The little boy answered, "Because they have nothing. No home, no family, and if I don’t feed them they will die." “But there are homeless dogs everywhere," the old man replied. “So your efforts don’t really make a difference” The little boy looked at the dog and stroked him. “But for this little dog, it makes all the difference in the world.” and this is the reason were all here, for the Babies, We can't save them all, but to the few, We make all the difference in the world. They Love us unconditionally, their Love is not fake, Please return the Love. Thank You.

    I love this. It reminds me of the starfish story.

    Smart kid.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Such wisdom from a little kid. If only the adults would catch on. It makes me happy to know all that have been raised in my house cherish animals and it is the same for those at EBN. This I think is a good start.

    Thanks for sharing this Casper, a reminder that those we CAN touch we can truly make a difference…

    This is what this story reminds me of. This is one of my wife's favorites.

    While walking along a beach, an elderly gentleman saw someone in the distance leaning down, picking something up and throwing it into the ocean.
    As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, picking up starfish one by one and tossing each one gently back into the water.
    He came closer still and called out, “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
    The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”
    The old man smiled, and said, “I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?”
    To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”
    Upon hearing this, the elderly observer commented, “But, young man, do you not realise that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”
    The young man listened politely. Then he bent down, picked up another starfish, threw it into the back into the ocean past the breaking waves and said, “It made a difference for that one.”

    I love both stories. We may think we're not making a difference when we do the little things, but if we feed just one person, save just one animal, pick up just one piece of trash, say one kind word to someone, hold one door open for someone, or give one person a hug or a smile, then you have made all the difference in that one persons life, and if everyone in this world did just one act of random kindness to just one person, then imagine how many people you would make a difference to.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    If just one person does something nice for someone, it will catch on. As I said earlier, if the children see you doing the right thing, they will also, and this has the potential to grow go on for generations.

    Oh, how many years of my life I spent bringing home strays........all kinds of animals. Just can do it anymore,things are not like they used to be. It breaks my heart. Ya' know, I could never even watch LASSIE as a kid, because I couldn't take it if she got hurt! Still can't watch. Years ago my son bought me the movie LION KING, when it came out. I still have not watched it! I have enough depression-can't take it!! 30 seconds into the horse whisperer nearly killed me!! They say "you can't save the world" but I sure wish I could save the animal world,from uncaring people! You people on EBN have given
    me some hope-there ARE still good people................You all are "the cream of the crop!!!
