In low points nature is a great healer.
I do despair at the human race. A bunch of extremists abuse the liberty of freedom of speech to insult the Muslim religion with a rubbish film; another bunch of extremists use the film to justify taking of life. The extremists have done the equivalent of throwing a grenade into a gunpowder store.
Personally, what hit me hard, was a story today in the Daily Mail of a keeper of owls and hawks, who hit, kicked and tortured the terrified birds. He had looked after the birds for 30 years, ran a charity animal refuge for them and claimed they were like children to him. He was banned from keeping animals for life.
It is moments like this that I turn to nature, the great healer.
