There was a deer laid out at the side of the road, its fur torn and blood everywhere.
A policeman was kneeling beside the deer, speaking gently to it, his hand stroking its side.
The deer was clearly dying.
It was a scene of needless death, sadness and revulsion.
This beautiful creature had been hit by a car, scraped along tarmac and left to die.
Our response is to turn away, but like that policeman we must not.
Your feelings make you human; be moved by them and act.
What you feel says so much about who you are.
A life is passing. Every life matters. Bear witness.
Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so,
you apologize for the truth.
