Oregon Love For Louisiana Kitties!

The long weekend messed me up on my Tuesday blog post, but I did get lots of things done that involved furnace guys, cleaning out things and moving rocks. The glamour of it all!

But on this eve of 9/11, it’s nice to know that no matter what the disaster in our nation, we lend a helping hand to our fellow citizens, including the furry ones. A total of 31 cats and kittens arrived from Louisiana yesterday to help make room for felines affected by the flooding there and to bring some furry Southern charm to Oregon.

Remember those we lost on 9/11 and the first responders and construction workers we are still losing to illness fifteen years later.

Honor them by adopting a Southern feline friend in need as an act of kindness.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday.

P.S. No Sound on the video. Just cute kitties.

Honor With Remembrance Those We’ve Lost

by Kimberly A. Cook                    (Twitter@ WarriorTales)

While we go about this long weekend spending time with families and friends, we must remember why we have Memorial Day. That is the day the nation honors and remembers the men, women and military animals who have given their lives in defense of freedom.

We take time to honor and remember those who have given the greatest sacrifice since we became a nation. Take a few minutes this weekend to think about and thank those who gave all for our country. Say a prayer for their friends and families who go on without them.

There are thousands of individual stories of these brave military service members who didn’t come home to their loved ones. Below is one story of a veteran who honors our fallen every day by using his talent.

Stay safe this long weekend and enjoy your freedoms; they were earned at the highest cost. Freedom isn’t free.

Do One 9/11 Good Deed Today

by Kimberly A. Cook             (Twitter@   WarriorTales)

Today on the 14th Anniversary of the attacks on 9/11 we remember those we lost, thank those who put themselves in harm’s way to save others and pray for those who serve now to keep us safe. Then we stand up with hope and go forward like our citizens before us have since the birth of our nation.

The kid’s born on September 11, 2001, are the legacy and future of what the United States will become. The http://www.911day.org non-profit’s role is to encourage all of us to do one good deed today in remembrance. Seems the perfect way to honor all; we move ahead by giving back.

So sometime today, no matter where you are in the world, do a good deed for someone else. It makes a big difference, sometimes more than you will ever know. Give blood, open a door for someone, smile at a stranger, walk a dog at an animal shelter, hug a friend.

Have a great weekend and Happy Good Deed Quirky Friday.
