‘In honour of’

‘In honour of’

In
December 2020 the Nieu-Bethesda residents were very proud and fond of
3 owl chicks that were newly hatched in a tree next to a fairly quiet
road and getting stronger by the day.

The
sheer beauty and magnetic mysteriousness these creatures innocently
possess had us all besotted with adoration.

Unfortunately
their presence also attracted the attention of a group of youngsters
who thought it a good idea to try and stone the innocent victim, and
succeeded.

This
raised the question – what would be the driving force behind such
cruelty at such a young age? Where have we gone wrong, and how can
we remedy this sad state of affairs?

I
do not propose to have the answers to these difficult questions. But
I do know it calls for introspection. If at some level there is
something we can do to relieve our youth’s – animal and human
alike – suffering, let us do so.
