Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (14)

Quote of the day:
When the awareness of what is achievable brushes your life, your journey has begun. -Lorii Myers

Santino Stagliano, a 10-yr old boy who was diagnosed with autism at age 5, and being nonverbal for most of his life had always used art as a form of expression -and with the help of his family designs dragon t-shirts to raise awareness as well as money for the Center for Autism in Philadelphia -his first donation was for $2,500, through his non-profit.

Buzz (Right) and Glen (Left), two dogs rescued from a sea tunnel in England and now at Stray Aid Rescue Centre are hoping to get a new home. Glenn, a Jack Russell terrier who is permanently blind, is guided by Buzz, a Staffordshire bull terrier. According to the staff at Stray Aid, the two pooches have been more than just inseparable, with Buzz actually guiding his buddy around, even helping find his bed and food, and pushes the right bowls to him if he’s eating the wrong one.

Have a wonderful weekend, peace always*
