Caged Birds [Rant]

My apologies for not posting recently. Due to economic downturns my wife and I can no longer stay at our current place and have to move. Let's just say that there is a lot of drama going on. It may be a month before I post anything for Savage Worlds.

Let me leave you with this thought though. Caged birds bother me. Someone staying with us has them and I was tasked with feeding them while this person was away. One day I found one of the little birds dead in the food dish and it made me very angry.

Birds were given the gift of flight. No part of their habitat is akin to living in a cage, yet we stupid humans lock them up. Why? Because they are pretty? Buy some binoculars then or go to the wild animal park. It is just so selfish to shut up a creature like that and condemn it to a life and death without being able to fly.

Anyway, I know it isn't Savage Worlds related but I needed to vent.

  1. Chad - I couldn't agree with you more about caged birds. It really isn't the right way to treat something you would expect someone to love. Sorry to hear about the financial difficulties. Stay positive. Things get better if you keep the right frame of mind. I look forward to seeing your next post - Savage Worlds or otherwise.

  2. I hear you - I feel the same way about fish kept in aquariums. If we're going to insist on running the planet our way, we have to accept that we have a duty of care to its other inhabitants.
