A Donkey with a Cart in Morocco


My husband and I visited Marrakech, Morocco this spring on our return from a wedding. It was utterly heartbreaking to see how the donkeys were treated there, and hard to believe that humans still don’t understand how precious all animals are. Donkeys are the sweetest, most patient and enduring animals and have carried our burdens for thousands of years. Seeing the disrespect shown to them, as well as to the thousands of stray cats and dogs and horses was simply unconscionable. We must do all we can to teach our children to respect and be kind to animals all over the world.
