A Lenten Sacrifice
Hal, a wild coyote from the North who migrated to Central Park just died in captivity---following a chase, tranquilizer gun and transport--bound and muzzled. What killed this graceful, innocent, vibrant creature who asked for nothing more than his right to roam God's Earth? Fear---his and ours. Hal died terrified of us, exhausted. We kill God every day trying to dominate, control and possess that which belongs to God, not us. We are guests on this planet, not landlords. That's God's job, not ours. We are entrusted, not empowered. God's a Green, y'know.
