Having a day off, I stayed home and watched MILK, starring one of my favorite actor, with countless respected recognitions- SEAN PENN . This film is based on an inspiring true story of the first openly guy man,Harvey Bernard Milkelected to major public office, this compelling film follows Milk's powerful journey and life to inspire HOPE for guys equal rights during one of the least tolerant times in American's history. Maybe (or not) is Sean's captivating role play, I find this film very emotional which stirred me within, feeling his strength and sacrifices made not for himself or oneself but for the world.
It can be ambiguous to some but how many within us could live like him.
His life changed history. His courage changed lives. His strength gave hope.
Just like Jasmine whom I met through forward mails. She sprinkles LOVE and HOPE into this striving world of us .............
2003, police in Warwickshire, England, opened a garden shed and found a
whimpering, cowering dog.. It had been locked in the shed and
abandoned.. It was dirty and malnourished, and had clearly been
abused.In an act of kindness, the police
took the dog, which was a Greyhound female, to the nearby Nuneaton
Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, run by a man named Geoff Grewcock and
known as a willing haven for Animals abandoned, orphaned or otherwise in
and the other sanctuary staff went to work with two aims to restore the
dog to full health, and to win her trust. It took several weeks, but
eventually both goals were achieved.
They named her Jasmine, and
they started to think about finding her an adoptive
Jasmine had other ideas. No one remembers now how it began, but she
started welcoming all Animal arrivals at the sanctuary. It wouldn't
matter if it was a puppy, a fox cub, a rabbit or, any other lost or
hurting Animal, Jasmine would peer into the box or cage and, where
possible, deliver a welcoming lick.

abandoned by a nearby railway line. One was a Lakeland Terrier cross and
another was a Jack Russell Doberman cross. They were tiny when they
arrived at the centre and Jasmine approached them and grabbed one by the
scruff of the neck in her mouth and put him on the settee. Then she
fetched the other one and sat down with them, cuddling

Jasmine, the timid, abused, deserted waif, became the
animal sanctuary's resident surrogate mother, a role for which she might
have been born. The list of orphaned and abandoned youngsters she has
cared for comprises five fox cubs, four badger cubs, 15 chicks, eight
guinea pigs, two stray puppies and 15 rabbits.
And one roe deer

Upon arrival at the sanctuary, Jasmine cuddled up to her to keep her
warm, and then went into the full foster mum role. Jasmine the greyhound

inseparable," says Geoff "Bramble walks between her legs and they keep
kissing each other. They walk together round the

will continue to care for Bramble until she is old enough to be returned
to woodland life.. When that happens, Jasmine will not be lonely. She
will be too busy showering love and affection on the next Orphan or
victim of abuse.
