The Wisdom of Eeyore and Hamamas

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a high school student, bat advocate, and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. She now enjoys watching the bats fly over her home on summer evenings. Rachael has been writing the Baturday News for over three years.   Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week. I have been trying to enjoy the last little bit of summer vacation. Sadly, school starts on the 28th this year, which means I only have one more week of vacation to enjoy. I hope it’s a good one! This past week has been a difficult one for all of humanity. I am at a loss of what to say about what has been happening in the world, except to say that my thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by the events of the past week. A lot of people have been quoting the wisdom of great people like Mr. Nelson Mandela. I would like to remind everyone of the wisdom of Mr. A. A. Milne. He was the author of the Winnie the Pooh books and I believe that he also had a lot to say about peacefully living with others. One of my favorite quotes is from little Eeyore. He said, “a little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.” If people could just try to be a little more considerate of other people, maybe this week will be a better one. So, what do you all say? Let’s all make this coming week the spectacular week that it has the potential to be. Let us be kind and considerate and caring toward other people. Please.
