H.ope O.pens P.athways for painful E.motions to heal

by Margaret Hevel

A black and white dog moves softly through the school hallway. A beginning to parting the veil of sadness from the death of an eleven year old student. In a quiet room, Hope settles with her owner, Julie Bender and a sixth grade student.

The wall clock only ticks by a couple minutes before the young boy reaches out to rest his hand into the warm fur of Hope's neck. With the loss of a friend, one struggles with the solitary word-----WHY?
Some answers can come through the unconditional love of a canine friend. Overtime, for this young boy, comfort flowed in hugs to his bruised heart and wounded soul from a dog named Hope.
