The Arizona Tragedy and Words of Wisdom from President Obama

     Our hearts go out to all those affected, whether directly or indirectly, by the shootings in Arizona.  We are grateful to President Obama for his inspiring words and ability to bring people together in times of crisis.  Our friend, Nadine M. Rosin, picked the following quote out of his speech last night and we thought it was perfect, not only for the tragedy in Arizona, but also the work we do here at New England Pet Hospice:

 ‎"We recognize our own mortality, 
and are reminded that in the fleeting time 
we have on this earth, 
what matters is not wealth, or status, or power, or fame — 
but rather, how well we have loved, 
and what small part we have played 
in bettering the lives of others."
