This is sad..inspirational and still a sense of optimism. How can that be. How can a picture tell you or teach you so much. This picture is a test to know how human you are.. a personal test— pravin palande (@lonelycrowd) May 19, 2020
for there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.— مہر (@GulElaala) May 18, 2020
Unbearable lightness of being ~
What a nice and humane feeling for a Dog to whom she could have left where she came from. Very very rare quality of a person and very glad and very proud that such persons are also there in our country who could lift 3/4 kg extra weight in such very difficult time.— Colonel SK Padhi (R) 🇮🇳 INDIA 1ST 🇮🇳 (@HAPPY_ARMY_MAN) May 18, 2020
Oh my God . I can not control my tears . If only the leaders of this nation had one hundredth of this lady’s compassion and commitment , we would have come through this crisis with a fighting chance ,— Random Guy S Ravichandran (@iid_sp) May 18, 2020
Exactly my thoughts.On one hand one's disillusioned by people's bitterness, politician's manipulation and greed..— Fragrantwhirlwind (@WickedWitch74) May 18, 2020
On the other hand one's heartbroken to see people go through so much loss, feel such grief & then there's also sights of kindness. The ones who have less share more
It's usually the ones with the heaviest load who carry it lightly— Fragrantwhirlwind (@WickedWitch74) May 18, 2020
