If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

Leao is the dog of Cristina Santana, who was killed in the Brazil floods. She was buried two days ago, and the dog has kept vigil by the graveside ever since.

What to say? What can you say, that isn't either trite or pompous? The image speaks for itself.

Like The Grim Reaper (to whom a hat-tip for the image), I have had dogs most of my life, and like him I was moved enormously by this.
