Angels Among Us

Hello Boys and Girls,
Well, as you may have noticed, I sometimes feel the need to post something more personal than just "writing" related stuff; although, if you've read any of my writing, you'll know there's always something "personal" in it.  Anyhow, this is one of the times I need to inject some reality into my world of fiction.  I'm copying this post straight from my Facebook page, so if you've already read it and the accompanying link, you can stop now.

Here, I'll ask you to jump to my daughter's blog and read the awful true story of two kittens tossed from a speeding truck.  Go to www.sarabarnardbooks.com  I think anyone who hurts children or animals should be bound and gagged and turned over to me for twenty-four hours.  They would never hurt another one.  (Yes, I've given it some thought.)

Karma & Francis...hanging in there
I also wanted to add this about my son-in-law, Sara's hubby.  He jumped out first to save the kittens. He's the Drill Sergeant with the three Purple Hearts from Afghanistan. He's also the one raising a family of 6 on a soldier's pay. Do they have $600 extra for this vet bill? Nope. But did that stop them from saving the kittens anyway?  Again, nope. So, thanks Jerry.  It seems as if you (and Sara) are still giving even though you're home now.  

By the way, Sara, if you ever need a pen name for one of your novels, how about Angel?

Afterthought: Was the driver of the gray truck evil or ignorant?  What do you think?


  1. How dreadful. Human beings are sometimes the cruelest creatures around, yet your son-in-law just proves that there is still hope for us.

  2. :( for the truck guy, but yay for Jerry. There's a reason that one of the characteristics of a future-serial killer is cruelty to animals. It's absurd to want to harm an innocent animal, especially when there are so many places willing to help.

    1. Isn't that the truth? The innocent really do suffer the most at the hands of idiots and madmen.
