I just connected with Cecil the lion who was recently killed. I wanted to let him know how loved and honored he is. I was moved to tears to hear his words. His message is profound.
"Let not the actions of these few men defeat us or allow darkness to enter our hearts. If we do then we become one of them. Raise your vibration and allow this energy to move us forward.
