Purrs 4 Peace Week 40: Healing the World

The squirrel that you kill in jest, dies in earnest. ~Henry David Thoreau

This week I have raged against the incomprehensible injustices of illness. First, when a beloved friend was struck down without warning by illness. Without warning. Fast. Undeserved. Why would god...the universe...allow such a good person to be lost from the world so soon? I do not understand it. But over this tragedy, no one had control.

Then I became enraged by the story of Alfie Cummings. Alfie is a 14 month old cat, a member of the Cummings family in Dorset, United Kingdom, who was savagely attacked by stranger(s) and left for dead. This was deliberate infliction of tragedy. This pain and suffering was within someone's control. Still the question is why? Why would someone intentionally harm this beautiful little sweet creature? Clearly, this abuser needs healing for his soul. Someone who could perpetrate such cruelty is not whole.

Alfie lost an eye and suffered multiple fractures. After emergency surgery he is slowly progressing to recovery, but may need further surgeries. Not only has Alfie’s family provided loving support to this sweet baby, but also his surrounding community. Support for Alfie has rallied around the world as evidenced by the Facebook page created for this brave feline called Mission: Help Alfie. (Bravo to our friend Chunks Mather for spearheading the Facebook support.) This outpouring of compassion shows that most humans are wonderful and giving. Alfie’s continued recovery is testament to his strength of will and to the overwhelming power of love.

The abuse to Allie is so very sad and wrong. Maybe one purr at a time will help end this type of thing. We'll keep purring for the cause.

I joined Alfie's page this past week. I cannot fathom what makes someone act so cruely. Purring for Alfie and purring that the darkness that causes such actions is banished from our world forever.
