Gabriel's Angels
April 28, 2011

I watched a Gabriel's Angel volunteer and her dog spend time with a group of young children at the Crisis Nursery. The kids had hands on experience learning how to care for and love the animal as well as each other. What struck me was the transformation of the attitude of one child who shared that dogs had always been mean, so he was mean to them. At the end of time the team was there this child had his arms around the dog giving him kisses. It was a life's lesson for me.

With the number of kids struggling in these times, I wish there were more supporters of Gabriel's Angels so the organization could add more teams.
