Everyone needs a community of support.  Pets are important  members of our community.

Research shows that pets improve our physical health,  and overall sense of well-being.  Pets lower our blood pressure and heart rate and reduce our risk of heart attack or stroke.  The comforting presence of a pet boosts brain chemistry to fight anxiety and depression.  We are less stressed, more content, less lonely, and more motivated if we have a pet to take care of.

A candlelight vigil for the missing passengers was held in Ansan, South Korea, the hometown of many of the missing students who were aboard the ferry that capsized eight days ago.  Of the 476 people on board the ferry nearly 340 were children and teachers on a school trip.  Passengers were trapped inside the ship which sank within two hours after the first distress signal was sent by a male student.

As of today the death toll is 159 with 143 still missing. 174 people were rescued from the ship as it sank in the Yellow Sea.
