In a musIim locality where i lived last year, the person next door used to take care of his goat very much. Feed her on time, wash her daily. Even kept her warm.
But suddenly one day i saw stream of blood flowing on the road from his house.
Never saw her again.
Reminds me of this. Humanity shines in the midst of the worst times. Pray for Beirut.https://t.co/HikRgEn2uH— Charlotte 🖐️🏠 (@ccchre) August 7, 2020
