I didn't think it was possible to be sad at Rainbow Bridge but I was wrong because I'm feeling sad today.
We've welcomed so many birds, turtles, dolphins, fish and other sea creatures to the Bridge over the past 2 months, they all arrive covered in crude oil so we quickly lead them to the stream of crystal clear water and help them clean up. Then we give them something yummy to eat and make them feel comfortable. A lot of them have sad stories to tell, they've left young ones behind, some of the brown pelican mommies left nests full of eggs that will never hatch ... we try to comfort them with a rainbow hug, we try to take their sadness away and dry their tears.
It breaks my heart to see them here, they're victims of the Deep Horizon disaster that happened in the Gulf of Mexico - it should have never happened, all these beautiful creatures should be living their lives in the beauty of the Gulf, enjoying the tropical breezes as they soar against the blue skies ... swimming and playing in the warm waters of the Gulf.
In my need to understand why this happened, I respectfully approached the Creator of all things and asked him "WHY" ... with eyes full of tears he replied "GREED" - and I wept with him.

Ralfie...I feel sad also. Humans don't seem to understand and many I don't believe care. They don't understand that we are all connected in one chain circle. When a link breaks, it will eventually ravel up and down the circle chain. Mom has wept for each soul...she is sensitive and feels their cries.
Here, I am helpless as you. But today...Mom helped a Purple Finch to the bridge. And that made me happy. He was sick, from what we don't know. A cat was able to bat him off the deck. When he arrived, I welcomed him and he flew without pain and without suffering.
Those who are coming to the bridge will no longer have to suffer from human greed. They are free...free to be the souls without human interference.
Thank you for speaking out for those who cannot. What a special pup you are....
