True Story of Unsung Heroes of Animal Rescue

You may read a multiple book and articles animal heroes true rescue stories, this story is not a famous one but surely it will touch your hearts. Tonight I went to the beach to watch 2 sea turtle nests. At 11:pm 3 young college kids, two girls and a guy, came over. I had met them 2 weeks ago when they asked what I was doing sitting by a nest. I told them about the sea turtles and they sat there for several hours with me getting an education about sea turtles and other imperiled marine life. We watched the nest but nothing happened. The next night they were curious so they went to check on the same nest at about 11:pm. It had started to hatch. They were sure the hatch lings would go toward the water. They had no buckets or flashlights, they couldn't call me because they didn't have my cell (which I think everyone on the planet must have by now and knows I'm on call for animal rescue 24/7)

The nest started to hatch with 80 babies racing toward the dune. They remained calm and using their jackets made a sack which held the disorientated hatch-lings. They gently picked them up and released them into their new home the ocean. They waited to see if more would come out. After awhile they went home and sat on their sofa thinking out what had just happened. They saved a whole nest of an endangered species. Not something most people ever get the chance to do.

They told me tonight what had happened. I felt so proud that they got it, from just that one night sitting with me on the beach. Apparently what I had said and more importantly their wanting to learn had sunk in. That experience forever changed them. They helped the nest tonight when all 93 hatch lings went away from the ocean and toward the dune.

I'm writing this to show that you never really know the effect you have on people, you never know what seeds you plant will grow into awareness, compassion and action. We can only hope that they do. We have to have that hope that blind faith. That is what keeps us going, that the drive to protect won't die with us but will live on with the next generation of people we have inspired.


If only everyone could or would be willing to have face-to-face experiences with non-humans where they are helping them - surely this would be so much more rewarding than the atrocities that are mindlessly perpetrated. I never knew how personable turtles were until I rescued two, full grown and totally delightful Red Eared Sliders a few years ago. All non-humans demonstrate wonderful personalities; if we'd only give them a chance. Doing what we can do IS important for both human and non-human.

Romantic Love Paragraphs & Letters for a Boyfriend

Do you ever write a romantic love paragraph for him from the heart? A recent survey discovered that single girls write more love notes and letters to their boyfriends or fiancĂ© but married women rarely write such a love note to their husbands only on their birthdays or anniversaries but in both cases it is observed that the relationship got stronger in such couples who use to write each other. Mostly girls in a lovely relationship wake up in the morning by receiving a romantic good morning text from their guys and cannot sleep without sending a romantic text message to their guys. Successful relationships do not just happen. They are a culmination of careful and intentional choices. Most of us plan for our careers, savings, and investments and other parts of our life. When it comes to relationships, however, we think things will just happen. We get taxed and take it as it comes. Nothing just happens. No one comes to knock on your door. We must plan for the kind of love we want operat…

Happy One Year Engagement Anniversary Quotes

Before you start reading these happy one year engagement anniversary wishes and quotes, let’s discuss a little bit about the importance of true love between you and your fiancĂ©. Love is the greatest teacher. It spills over into everything in life. I've thought many times how I could describe it but it never fails that no words seem worthy. Actually, the best that I've come up with is that most people have multiple relationships in their life. And in each one, we all think that somehow or in some way we are in love with that person, but then it ultimately ends up not working out. Then we're on to the next one, each time learning from our mistakes before and inching closer to what, at the time, seem to be the most elusive thing in the universe. That is something very special happens and it only happens with one person on this planet. This person does something you've never experienced before and it rocks you to your core. They wake up your soul. Or rather your soul reco…
