Greetings of love and gratitude from
An oil rig worker saves Pedro, a
racing pigeon, from certain death.
A recent Reuters article
reported that a racing pigeon became lost 160 miles from land but was
saved when he crash-landed on an oil rig in the North Sea. The workers
named him Pedro and fed and cared for him until he was airlifted to a
wildlife rescue center in Scotland. His first responder and rescuer was
Kevin Mitchell who worked on the rig. He happened to be the boyfriend
of Kirsty McQuade who is an officer with the Scottish Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Pedro is safe and healing at the
rescue center. The racing pigeon culture is, itself, a horribly cruel
and degrading practice, and many birds die from what they are forced to
do. How wonderful that one of them landed in loving hands.
Prayer for the week for racing pigeons
and for compassion like Kevin’s to encircle the world.
Kevin’s respect and compassion for starving, exhausted Pedro ripple out
from every oil rig, every ship, every island, and every country to
every racing pigeon and to all living beings. May that consciousness of
kindness enlighten every heart as people learn of this story and others
like it—stories in which people faced a choice to protect or to destroy
and chose protection, even if it meant ridicule. We give thanks for the
courage and compassion that lives in us all, and we see every person
feeling that natural, inborn longing to be loving and finding ways to
express it. And as these ripples reach all people, we see hearts being
healed everywhere. A vegan world of lovingkindness for all is coming
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace
for all beings.
