The Puppy Died. so Did Humanity!
Call it a hobby or not, I love traveling. When not at work, I travel more than others, who typically spend time at their home. Getting outside and seeing the world, frees my spirit and gives the feeling of being at different places at the same time.
As of that day, it wasn’t a planned journey when I made into the street rush. A mild 30km/h was the best to get both the side and the street view.
The scenic beauty of the roadside is always the same but gives a pleasant feeling every time. Why things don’t change is what I wonder?
But the street view is dynamic. Colorful cars and people, all are on the rush except for me. Because I am traveling to free my spirit, not to rush myself for an exchange of money and goals. Beautiful women in dark goggles are the best attraction of the road. It is wonderful that they cover their eyes with those googles, but not their lips. They wear colored clothes, but are shining white everywhere I see on their body. Let them be! afterall It’s my psychology. Only I can understand it.
The racing trucks approach and feel like the hell rides. When they pass through, the whole ground trembles. Their momentum is admirable, and are the kings when in the middle of the highway. God bless their ride with music playing in the cabin “……Highway to Hell”.
Moving around is great, I am not on a distant journey. Am I forgetting that it takes equal time for me to return? There is a place, where I will obviously stop and take a U-turn. But the milkshake of that place will certainly be devoured by my thirsty soul.
On the return ride, a few miles seem pleasant until a view approached from a distance. A brownish tint in the middle of the road sparked and grew bigger as I approached. I slowed as I drew near until I jammed the brakes pulling over aside.
What I had been observing from a distance, was nothing else but an animal. Looking closer, an already dead puppy laid in the middle of the street. It was somehow hit by a vehicle, which ran away and the subsequent ones wheeled over it.
The animal’s body was already shattered and pasted on the road.
On approaching closer, what I saw was bone-shattering to look at. The lifeless creature was smashed and slashed after being killed and there was by no means I could take it off the road in one piece or a few pieces. The dolorous view wrenched my gut, while an avalanche of sorrow built on my inside.
What has happened to the people of this planet? What if your pet was smashed under a wheel and while it was trembling another vehicle smashes its head?
Even more painful was that that the puppy seems to have struggled after being hit. Half of its body was churned at a distance.
There was nothing I could do except to cover it with a plastic cover found on the roadside and put some twigs and branches as a signal on the road to drive away from it. Authorities arrived later.
It is shocking that the vehicles who passed by after the animal was hit, did not pull the poor creature aside. It could have taken a minute to do so while the animal was still in its last breath. Okay! I understood that you carry the responsibility of the whole world and were absolutely in rush; couldn’t you have driven off the animal’s body?
A dog is petted and loved, which the animal returns to his master with security, love, and gentleness. It is the most obedient and honest animal to humans, but what does it get in return? Infinite cruelty?
The gentle little buddy of someone, fought for his life on the road, with its tears and fear but nobody listened to it. Not even its body was forsaken and was minced ruthlessly. Those people are barbarians.
Accidents happen, and we all understand it. But with the scavenger mindset revealed by the people denotes that human beings are mastering as savages.
We have lost humanity and kindness; one that makes us human beings. All our life, we go to the gods' compartment to ask for forgiveness of all the sins committed. We burn a few candles and weep the croc’s tears, enough to light it off. Does that give humans the privilege to intentionally commit all the sins?
With all the cruelty inhabiting the human soul, the day is close; what has happened to a poor dog today will certain to happen to a human tomorrow.
Please do not turn your back if you find anyone or anything suffering. The pretty animals are a part of this planet, and they equally deserve to live as everyone does. As a living being, our strength is in our kindness and love.
May everybody learn a better lesson in life.
