From 25 May 2009 Issue

Little Robin Red Chest  

I have been watching with such humbleness and admiration a Mother Robin sitting patiently on her eggs for days on end, such love and devotion, innocents and vulnerability. Finally last week the babies hatched and I was I have to tell you so happy and relieved to see she made it this far. My husband was able to look into the nest and see we have welcomed three new robins into our world. Is there anything so sweet as new lives?

I watch the new Mother as she feeds those little beaks. She will sit on the edge of the nest and look at each baby, I can tell she, like us, is checking them over with such love and devotion. The babies are a week old now and I feel a responsibility for this little family myself. Watching her and the tiny ones reminded me why I am an activists, to protect and respect their lives and the miracle of life we all share.

She doesn't know the daily headlines, she isn't aware of how fragile this world has become, its our job to keep this earth in a healthy, safe environment. She is why I am an activist, she doesn't know it but she is my idol, so pure. Yes, little Robin, Thank you for reminding me of how special the Animal Rights cause is.

Linda Beane.
