Yesterday night coming home from work, I saw a skunk waddling on the side of the road right beside my home.
No tails were raised, I assumed it was just finding food or its way back home just how I was minutes earlier.
With my car parked, I got out and turned around to find that it had gone out on the other side of the road.
Within 15 seconds, I heard the sounds of a car driving not too far away from where we were. I knew its life would end right then and there before it did.
With no signs of slowing down, probably even unaware the animal was there since it was dark, I turned around so I wouldn’t see what would happen next.
Life comes and goes. Circumstances change. Unluckiness happens.
My heart goes out to the skunk tonight.
