More humane than humans


Long-time readers will remember my post about two homeless men who, on finding two children who had been thrown out of a window, had summoned help and taken the shirts off of their backs to help keep the children warm in the meantime.

Now we have this story:
A 12-year-old girl who was abducted and beaten by men trying to force her into a marriage was found being guarded by three lions who apparently had chased off her captors, a policeman said Tuesday.

It's something to remember the next time you look at someone your culture has taught you to regard as brutish. Judge them by their actions, not by their appearance.
