Brothers & Sisters

This is an older photo published a gazillion times since wildfire erupted in Australia last season. Yet still it is an incredible testament to those beautiful human beings who help out our sisters and brothers of all shapes, sizes, creed, species, etc. I love this image. It warms my heart and renews my faith in humanity and a beautiful world to come.
