When bad things happen, there are usually amazing stories that follow. We saw it in person with Hurricanes Rita and Katrina in 2005 and now a story of hope adrift in the ocean off Japan. The amazing story of this unexpected survivor was documented by cameras and I must admit, it made my heart smile. I still feel deeply for those hurt and hurting in Japan and there is still so much that needs to be done,you and I can help in the effort. This isn't the first dog story to come out of the despair of the earthquake and tsunami, you might recall the video of the pooch who led rescuers to his injured friend. I can only hope that we as citizens of the world can take a lesson from our four legged friends, be strong, take care of each other and keep believing that help is on the way.
