A grand illusion.
This little girl's suffering will end, one way or the other, on Thursday. Because there still are people out there who give a shit, that a little life is having a really rough time of it out there in the big and dangerous world. The old couple feeding these unwanteds, the discardeds, both have health issues. Their daughter, who masterminded getting them fixed and this little girl retrapped came all the way from Portland to make sure it happened. Her foot was just operated on. She's hobbled. She and her husband are suffering from a business deal gone bad, someone took them for all they had, and vanished. Despite all that, she rose above, as I rose above to go help, all my issues and stress of late.
See, some of us do that, despite it all.
Despite getting crushed like bugs all the time. We unflatten off the pavement, like cartoon characters, to rise again and go help a little stray cat. Despite all our hardships and issues and boy we got plenty of issues.
Assholes of the world, large and small, take note. We're stronger than you could ever imagine.
We, the little people with the warm hearts.
