I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...
the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope,
fear and dread,
sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry.
"God," I said, "this is terrible!
Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment,
and then He spoke softly,
"I have done something,"
"I created You."
