All The Animals Will Die

I want all the animals to live forever.

That doesn’t change the reality that every single animal that ever was or ever will be must die.

I open up the blue door of my house and hear the Sandhill crane’s bugling calls ring out across the neighbor’s empty cornfield and know that life continues, regardless of what I want, regardless of what I think I know.
