The 'Wee Folks' Faithful Friend.
The 'wee folks' have had profound impact on my life. I have witnessed wondrous little creatures who live in peace and harmony. It is a world where the beauty of nature and the beauty of their hearts; is truly embraced. No passing judgement based on the way you look. No preying on the vulnerable. For they are a community, a family that rejoices in all that is good.
We, the community, the family of mankind; has so much to learn. Those that would mock the fragile spirit of a brother in pain; shame on them. It is all too easy to label, to stereotype, to stigmatise people, we refuse to understand. Ignorance breeds ignorance. Those who would devalue the humanity of someone perceived as 'different'; must open their hearts and minds. Healthy discussion and interaction can bring down the barriers caused by misconceptions. Creating a peaceful, positive environment will benefit us all.
I have noted that our Jack Russell dog, 'Penny', has bonded with the wee folks. She has become very protective of them. The world of the wee folks and the world of loving dogs are intertwined. For like the wee folks, our loving canine friends, pass no judgement and remain faithful to the very end. The wee folks and our animal friends try to teach us lessons. Let us be inspired by the wisdom that these lessons can bring.
