Miracle at Rainbow Bridge

I saw this at the rainbowsbridge.com site and just thought everyone would love to read it. It is something to really think about. It is sad, though...

WELCOME AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE by AlexanderTheodore, Bouvier, Fourth Year

On the morning of September 11, 2001, there was an unprecedented amount of activity at the Rainbow Bridge. Decisions had to be made. They had to be made quickly. And, they were. An
issue, not often addressed here, is the fact that many residents really have no loved one for whom
to wait. Think of the pups who lived and died in hideous puppy mills. No one on earth loved or
protected them. What about the many who spent unhappy lives tied in backyards? Or the kittens
that were turned out & left to fend for themselves, unwelcome in their mothers homes? And, the ones who were abused. Who are they to wait for? We don't talk about that much up here. We share our loved ones as they arrive, happy to do so. But we all know there is nothing like having your very own person who thinks you are the most special pet in the Heavens. Last Tuesday
morning a request rang out for pets not waiting for specific persons to volunteer for special
assignment.. An eager, curious crowd surged excitedly forward, each pet wondering what the
assignment would be. They were told by a solemn voice that unexpectedly, all at once, over 4,000
loving people had left Earth long before they were ready. All the pets, as all pets do, felt the humans' pain deep in their own hearts. Without hearing more, there was a clamoring among them -
"May I have one to comfort?" "I'll take two, I have a big heart." "I have been saving kisses forever." One after another they came forward begging for assignment. One cozy-looking fluffy
kitten hesitantly asked, "Are there any children coming? I would be very comforting for a child
'cause I'm soft and squishy and I always wanted to be hugged." A group of Dalmatians came
forward asking to meet the Firemen and be their friends. The larger working breeds offered to
greet the Police Officers and make them feel at home. Little dogs volunteered to do what they do
best, cuddle and kiss. And the many cats offered to sit quietly for hours, purring and comforting
their new found friends. Pets who on Earth had never had a kind word or a pat on the head,
stepped forward and said, "I will love any human who needs love." Then all the pets, wherever on
Earth they originally came from, rushed to the Rainbow Bridge and stood waiting, overflowing with love to share - each tail wagging and curled around an American Flag.

I'm a tough broad but, that made me cry.

That was a touching story. It would be nice to think that the departed animals that had no home would be able to comfort and be comforted by the Sept 11 victims.
