Brighter Days Blog #18

Hello all! Hope you are all doing well and having a good day. We are leaving the daily challenge up today before the Doctors Without Borders correspondent responds to us. We did get a poem today, called, "The Wren," by Barbara McCauley. We encourage everyone to check this poem out as it was a great read. What our team thought this poem was about, was kindness. In this story, a young boy or girl catches a bird trapped in a hedge and nurses it back to health. After the bird is nursed to health, the main character's father tells the character that they must let it go, and the bird flies away, free. Our interpretation of this poem is about the beauty of kindness, and what we must do to give the ones we love, and the ones we don't, the best possible future. The main character gives such kindness to a being that has nothing to do with them. This is truly inspiring and highlights what we need to do to help each other, even when we don't need to. Because it matters, even more than helping someone we love, to help someone we don't. Because kindness has a face. It's us, out there, every single day, helping others. Thank you, and goodnight.
