World Animal Day

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Today is World Animal Day, a day to remember and pay tribute to all animals and the people who love and respect them. October 4 was chosen since it is the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment. I am actually named after Francis of Assisi, one of my my Christian names is Franciscus, which also means ‘free man’……

So, how do animals, people, ‘Christian’ and ‘free’ connect on this World Animal Day??

Well, I found *the* YouTube clip…wow…BEAUTIFUL!!!
