I witnessed something so amazing yesterday. As I sat in the car waiting for Brian to run a quick errand, I noticed a bird lying by the curb, obviously struggling to live. It may have been hit by a car, I'm not sure.
Soon, a single bird showed up and circled the dying bird. It began squawking as it paced back and forth. Next, I saw about 25 or 30 birds flying in, surrounding the struggling bird. Not sure what was happening as none of them were touching the sick bird. It was as if they were there to support him as he "passed on".
Watching this scene, it reminded me of how, as humans, the most important things in this life are our relationships to people and with people. Otherwise, what? Let's support and love each other. It feels good and proof that we, in turn, love our Selves.
