I missed the Daily Prompt on November 15 to write about Evil, because nothing specific came to mind. But today I had a phone call from my daughter. She was heading to her car and heard strange noises coming from the nearby dumpster. She investigated, and found a very young puppy, crying and struggling in the cold (temps were in the freezing zone.) She took her home, but she and my son-in-law already had a dog and a cat and weren’t in a position to keep this one. They gave her something to eat and began assessing her condition. She looked ok, with the exception of a botched attempt to crop her tail off. They were soon able to place newly named “Lucy” with a family member, who immediately heaped upon her the love she needed and deserved. The “evil” part, of course, goes to anyone who would do such a thing as was done to this, one of God’s helpless creatures. This applies to those who are cruel and abusive to children and animals alike. It breaks my heart to hear of this happening all too often, but I am ever grateful for those whose hearts are big enough to step in and “rescue” when the opportunity presents.
