People weep for their spouses, their children, and their wealth, but who weeps for God?

Russian soldiers don historic uniforms and march through the Red Square to mark 1941 parade of soldiers on their way to fight the Nazis

The parade involved approximately 6,000 Russian soldiers and military cadets, many of them dressed in World War II-era uniforms.

Our lives are intertwined with those of animals, and better for it. Gathered here are images of that furry interface. -- Lane Turner
