Of late, it seems the very hot ambient temperatures have matched the soaring emotional temperatures!
Whatever side of the national debate your politics fall on, you have to admit that the deadly encounters between protesters, citizens, and police have left many communities in the throes of a powerful and deep grief. Whether the disasters be local or global, the collective consciousness of humanity right now is carrying a heavy burden of anguish and distress.
No one can escape loss, sadness, and grief. Every one of us has tasted some in our lives; and even our children are not immune. And although they may not express their emotions quite like humans, animals can be just as affected by stressful situations. After all, they are sentient beings like ourselves.
