2. You are so welcome! I just realized we all need something inspiring with today's news.

It's easy to overlook the good things in the midst of all the rest. I have to make a conscious effort to look for the good and the uplifting. And then it is heart opening to share it.

13. The lion, bear, and tiger were found abused in a drug dealer's basement.

"There sat three terrified, malnourished, and parasite-ridden cubs that certainly didnít belong in anyoneís home. Once rescued (2001) and sent to a sanctuary, they became inseparable, until the lion passed away in 2016 and the tiger in 2018.

We've known about them for decades.

Thanks for the photos! They're a great distraction from all of the shittery that is going on right now.

11. Thanks for the post! Mental Health Break! Yes, how do you cope?

I listen to famous composers on YouTube, and watch classic movies, often WWII themed. I think my copy of "Where Eagles Dare" will eventually burnout.

Many of us need the positive images shown here. For me itís a welcome relief from the horrors currently being visited upon us by the most incompetent and infantile human to ever occupy the Oval Office. ❤️
