Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 I recently re-read Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 which is my favorite of her novels and also one of the few books that have ever provoked me to heart-pumping stomach-jumping sobbing. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 Since it had been some years since the last reading, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 I wondered if it would have the same effect. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 It did—even more so because of the sanctuary work that has taken up many of the intervening years.

Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 I’ll try to divulge only as much as I need to reveal to say what I have to say, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 but if you’ve not read the book yet and prefer to be completely surprised by plot twists, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 you’ll want to skip the rest of this paragraph and go onto the next. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 There’s a point in the book when my favorite character bursts into the funeral for a departed relative whose tragic death has provoked her beyond the brink. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 She speaks quietly to each mourner in turn, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 claiming the departed as a member of her family, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 and then shouts to the heavens, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 so that everybody will know, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 “And she was loved!”

Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 No matter that I know it’s coming, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 that passage always leaves me feeling sucker-punched as I gasp to contain the fists of pain battering my heart and throat. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 Even more so, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 now that I know exactly what it feels like to have the burning wish to communicate that a being was loved.

Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 I remember when Chickweed—one of the first birds rescued by what would become the Eastern Shore Sanctuary and then VINE Sanctuary—died, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 I dredged the house for objects to bury with him. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 I wanted anybody later coming upon those chicken bones to know: This wasn’t anybody’s dinner. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 This was somebody’s brother. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 This was somebody’s friend.

Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 Why? The intensity of the impulse suggests a primordial root. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 We’re social animals, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 so much so that we construct our identities—originally and continually—from the reflections of ourselves we see in others’ eyes. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 And so… something about full personhood depends—or feels like it depends—on being seen by others. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 (Really seen. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 That’s why persistent misperceptions, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 especially by parents and partners, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 can be so damaging.) And then maybe… something about goodness—or, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 rather, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 the feeling of goodness—depends on being cherished by others.

Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 And so when someone—especially someone from a despised or denigrated group—dies, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 those who cherished that being want everybody to know: This wasn’t just some body; this was somebody. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 What makes that most clear? That s/he was loved!

Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 This train of thought was provoked by the death of a duck called Baltimore by those of us who loved him.

Baltimore Blum

Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 Please do go now and read his obituary, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 which I wrote with the intent of communicating these facts: He began life in a foie gras factory, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 enduring unspeakable suffering. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 He was rescued in an act of compassion that would be considered an act of terrorism under current laws. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 He lived out his life at the sanctuary, microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 where he behaved kindly to other beings. Microzide 12.5mg pills $236.00 And he was loved!

    For me, there is no such thing as reading too much about Baltimore Blum. You caused me to love him in the VINE essay you wrote on him, and your writing here engenders an identical response.

    Though I have not read Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon and probably will never get to it, I so appreciate learning of the line “And she was loved.” I totally identify with your need to communicate the loved status of each animal — that each creature is a somebody (not, as you so beautifully put it, just some body).

    Yes, Baltimore Blum was loved. And even better, Baltimore Blum IS loved. The love never dies, does it. Nor, I like to think — no, I am utterly convinced — does his love for his saviors — rescuer Sarahjane and sanctuary friends of all species — ever die. Impossible.

    Pattrice – we met very briefly the first day I volunteered at the sanctuary recently. I just read this piece, and like VINE itself, it touches something in my soul. When I ran a rescue, I always went with each animal that had to be put down. There weren’t many, two or three a year, but it happened… and I told all my volunteers – NO ONE should ever have to die anonymously on a cold stainless steel table. They had a name, they were loved. Love flows through the very air at VINE, thanks to you and all who work there.
