Today, my heart breaks for the precious animals of Australia.
Yesterday, without realizing how it would hit me deep in my heart, I watched a short video on Facebook of someone rescuing a sweet koala. I heard him crying, and I cried. I saw the love and caring of the rescuer. They did their best to save him. But in the end, the words below the video said they had to put him to sleep.
The memory of his distress haunts me. My heart hurts, and I pray to God to help end the fires and the suffering of these poor creatures.
I am thankful for all those who are working hard to save the animals. I have searched for an organization that I can donate to and try to help in even the tiniest of ways. In my heart, I need to do something to help.
My heart grieves for the people as well, and for the losses they experience. I pray for them daily.
But for today, for this moment, my tears are for all of the scared, hurt, and suffering animals dealing with the Australia fires.
I have no fear of losing my life – if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.
