So, today after my wonderful ACT test, my family and I drove up to Mexico for the day. I love traveling and meeting new people, I was very excited to spend the day in new and unfamiliar surroundings. As we drove up to a family friends house I noticed that there were alot of dogs wondering the streets without owners. It was truly heart-breaking. I am a huge animal lover and have two dogs myself so, seeing these beautiful compassionate creatures wondering the streets by themselves made me think about my two wonderful dogs and how lucky I am to have them in my life. While driving around I just really wanted to take all these dogs that were wondering down the streets home and feed them. While passing this one really beautiful labrador dog laying down in the middle of the sidewalk without any owner insight and not one local person paying any attention to the dog, all I could think of is taking this dog home and giving it a bath and some love and affection.
The reason we went to Mexico was to get traditional dresses for a wedding, I was unsuccessful in finding a dress. But, I have come back as a more aware human being, the conditions around the world aren't perfect, there are many people living in poverty. So, it makes me wonder can a group of individuals try to change something that has been going on decades? There are many countries in need of help and there are many people living in horrible conditions around the world. I encourage all to get involved with local organizations that help countries who have difficult living conditions or even the homeless shelter or homeless dog shelters, a difference will be made. Here are a few websites that get involved with helping countries around the world with poverty. As well as one that helps with homeless pets. It takes just one person to make a difference.
