Giving is the best communication


Happy weekend friends!

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

  6. Unbelievable.

  7. seeker says:

    Paid in full Thai version. Excellent.

  8. So true my friend…if only we alway could only see it! Have a real nice week-end…

  9. Oh! I watched this video yesterday and almost cried… Is beautiful! Happy weekend to you too ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. In a simple word. Beautiful! Happenings such as this one play out every day. Hopefully I am doing my part with animals and a young couple that I know. I am far from wealthy. I’v read that most worthwhile needs/charities are funded primarily by regular working class and middle class individuals. I believe this is true.

    This is a good one. Paulette.

    • Agree with everything you commented on here. And, I might add that you certainly do a lot to contribute to making this world a better place one act of kindness after another. No question about it. Wealthy is not the mark for how kind or the impact one has on another’s life, not from my humble perspective. What makes the gauge for me,and is probably true for most people, is what comes from one’s heart and yours is huge! ๐Ÿ™‚

      About the question: I didn’t receive the post you’re asking about. And, have erased the question as you wished.

    happy weekend right back at you, Paulette! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Reblogged this on Danny Breslin and commented:
    It’s worth spending three minutes of your time watching this little video.

    Ok, thanks for making me bawl with this one; it’s a two-hankie fest for sure!

    If more people gave unconditionally, the world would be a smoothly running machine, no doubts. Thanks so much for the reminder.

    Now I hafta go put a wet washcloth on my face because I’ve got “cry-face”. Not Hollywood movie cryface, but real-life, touched in the heart cryface. Red puffy eyes, swollen nose (although it’s been swollen all week with a sinus infection, so kind of hard to tell!)

    Shadow and Chaya say hello. Happy Saturday.

    • You’ve just aptly described my fat puffy face from tearing up while watching this vid. And, yes yes yes to if people gave unconditionally… let us dream!

      Shadow & Chaya: rubbies, wags, cyber treats, and lotsa loving wish I could play with you thoughts sent to you. Now give Office Diva biped mom a great big lick from each of you and tell her BOL it’s from me.

      Happy weekend to ya’ll!

    Just loved this. Giving without wanting anything in return is not something we are all able to do, but we can certainly learn from it!

    • Loved it as well. So true, what you say about giving without wanting anything in return not being something we’re all able to do. So few examples of it in the world that when one shines through like this it’s astonishing. Wish it were different…ah, one can dream. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s very touching.
