Despite the horror of yesterday's news, we mustn't let it dictate the pattern of our lives. If we do, the maniacs win. We must gird our loins and carry on, no matter how much pain we may feel.
In that light, here's something to remind all of us of the good and the positive in life. Here's a Downs syndrome kid with his dog. Do take the time to watch the video, and note the interaction between the two. I suspect this kid, even though handicapped, will grow up greatly enriched by the companionship of his canine buddy.
