Need Help Please

by Pam LaPier

I know it's been awhile since I've been here. With working two jobs and school it's hard. Normally I am seeking help for animal rescues or for disaster recovery but this time it's very personal.

My little sister, Heather, and her family are going through a very difficult time. Last Wednesday she began to experience a great deal of neck pain. By Sunday she had become dizzy, disoriented and her walk was listing to the right. She was admitted into critical care Sunday evening. After a battery of tests, including an MRA, they have ruled out vascular (their first thought was a possible tear in a blood vessel), a stroke, aneurism and cancer. They are now looking at possible neurological causes.

As if this all wasn't enough for one family, yesterday their house caught on fire and they have lost everything.

My sister, her wife and her child are the best people I know. The family has started a go fund me site for them and I am reaching out to the kindest people I know, Kossacks, to ask for help. Please see below for further information.

Slogans for Bernie

by Pam LaPier

I gave $50 to Bernie Sander's Presidential campaign today and started thinking what should his slogan be? How about Vote for Bernie, he's not bullshit? Or Vote for Bernie, he'll actually do what he says? Or Vote for Bernie, he gives a damn?

Nepal - How to Help

by Pam LaPier

Please also see TexMex's diary here

I'm sure we're all feeling overwhelmed by the aftermath of the earthquake in Nepal. While it's easy to feel helpless, it's better to help.

Below the jump are some ways to do that.

This is a series of diaries highlighting animal rescues around the country and noting and celebrating the work they do to help animals who have no voices but ours to speak for them. I have decided to make this a daily series because there are so many wonderful rescues out there who need human help and weekly just doesn't seem to be enough. I have long wanted to start a rescue but lack the resources or time available to do so right now so this is my attempt to do my part. I hope that these rescues will benefit from the kindness and benevolence of the community here at Daily Kos. They are amazing organizations and worthy of Kossack attention and care.
I am here, alive and all around you
I have no voice
In your trees, your air, your fields, your oceans, your world
I have no voice
I am a mother, a father, a protector, a soul
I have no voice
I can walk, crawl, sing, fear
I have no voice
You must be my voice

I was listening to a Betty White Ludden "Here We Go Again" audiobook this morning and just marveling at how amazing this woman is in every way but especially in her love and advocating for animals so I decided to devote this diary to the Morris Animal Foundation where she is one of the Presidents Emeriti.
Does she know all
The meaning of life
The secret behind love
The sagest of guides
Is she the answer
To any problem posed
She sits so serene
What worlds does she know
Can she see past life
When she looks at the sky
She gazes into my soul
With those glowing green eyes
Does she understand
What dark matter is
Is the love that she gives
The greatest of gifts
Some would say she's just a cat
But I know the truth
She's the wisdom of ages
In a purring cat suit
