I Just Wish I Could Save the Whole World

Sometimes ... I feel very sad ... because I know reality is ... people, animals ... even me, my loved ones ... will have to die one day ... by Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee.

I have been watching the news this evening.  I saw video of the homes of hundreds of people being flooded ... rains, river.

My Heart breaks at the thought of people having to leave their homes ... possessions that make their homes a home ... their life comfortable.

The closest I can come to imagining what it's like is when we lost everything in a fire.  It happened so fast ... we couldn't save anything but, our Pups ... ourselves.

I feel sad, afraid for the many people who now, face life having to begin all over.  I know there are many tears being shed ... grief.  I am so very sorry.

I get the impression that now ... storms are doing such damage, destruction here in the United States like never before.  I know that when we get storms in our area in today's time ... storms always cause destruction ... even death.  I'm very nervous when storms come up.  It seems they are more intense now.

Do you ever worry about strangers ... care with your Heart ... feel pain at the thoughts of so many people suffering ... people you don't know?  Animals?  I think about such things all the time.  Sometimes, the thoughts overwhelm me ... I have to get my attention on something else.  I can't bear for people, animals to suffer.

I am bothered by the many animals we see ... laying on the roads from being hit by vehicles.  Do you know ... I say a prayer for every one I see.

My prayers go something like this:  I pray that you didn't suffer when you were struck by a vehicle.  I'm so sorry that you died.

Maybe you think I'm silly for caring ... it's true.  I've always done this.  I'll always do it.  I care for every animal I see.  I stop to move turtles out of the road.

My prayers are that you and your loved ones ... and animals are always safe.  Lately I've been sad when a family lost their dear loved one.  It hurt my Heart deeply.  Of course, I felt so much caring for the whole family ... and as a grieving mother ... I understood what the mother is going through ... will go through.  I'm so sorry ... I would walk that road of grief she is on now for her if I could ... I know the way ... and know it well. I'm so sorry for what she'll have to go through in her journey of grief.

These are thoughts on my mind tonight as I sit here at my computer.  I feel such love, caring ... for people, animals I don't even know.  I worry for the world.  I just wish I could save the whole world.

Note by this Author:

These are true thoughts I feel ... no matter if they sound silly.  I truly wish ... I could save this whole world.  I know I can't in reality ... doesn't stop me from wishing with my Heart that I could.  I'm so sorry when people have to feel pain, grief, heartache.  I know how it feels ... it hurts so bad.

  1. We all wish we could save the world. Look at it this way through your writing you do you part in your own way.

  2. You are such a loving person! You care so much for people and animals and you don't know some of them. I think we all would love to be able to save the world but we know we can't. All we can do is pray for them. Love, Ms. Nancy
