Amazing people and police

This is a letter for the kind people who came to help after my little dog was viciously attacked by two pitbulls near the Post Office here in Aberdeen in August. I’m sorry to not have gotten your names, but I so appreciate and want to thank them: to the people in a car who called the police; the woman who brought me a clean towel to wrap him in; the woman who came forward as a witness to this; and the man who contacted the vet, drove us to get a ride, and offered us a ride to Olympia if needed.

One hundred years ago this month, after German troops marched into Belgium, Britain declared war and scarcely an hour later it sent its cable ship Alert into the English Channel. By dawn, amid heavy rain and wind, the crew had severed Germany’s five most important Atlantic cables. For the duration of the war, Berlin’s ability to communicate abroad, even with many of its embassies, was impaired.
