Music from the Trash Heap

Mom and I were just snuggling in the Big Bed like normal but then she did something MEAN! 

She changed the tv channel. She knows I love animal planet but she wanted to watch HER show. 

Ugh. How rude!

I pouted for a while but after a few minutes my ears started twitching and then my snoot stuck out of the blanket.

The story on the news show was very interesting to me.
It told of a town called Cateura in a country called Paraguay. Roxy said it is near her homeland of Colombia. 

The story was about the very poor children who live there, in a town that is basically a big trash heap. In spite of their surroundings, the local children have found a way to make instruments out of the trash they live in and have now become famous worldwide by playing beautiful music.

Mom was crying when she was watching this show and I already knew what she was thinking about.

This was just another example of people overcoming their circumstances and taking something ugly and turning it into something beautiful.

Animal rescue is VERY UGLY. It can be so disheartening and sad. There are people that do such horrible things. 

Most times it feels like it would just be easier to give up; to just walk past the trash heap.

But just remember the music you will be missing out on…and the beauty that the world will not get to see.

Do not fear going into that trash heap and pulling out something that may seem ugly to the world. 

With a little love and attention, it will show its beauty and value to the world.
