***11/26/07 update: I want to thank all of my friends here on BC for electing me as BOTW. I am very honored and touched***I was a very brave bird which is how I got my name BraveHeart. I was misunderstood, got in trouble for just being a bird, and had my tootsies burned off on a stove top. I was rescued from that person and was brought to Second Chance Bird Rescue, where I will live forever. They think I am really special there! I have a very special cage with ramps and horizontial bars so I can climb with my little nubbie footsies, and I am the Rescue's mascot which means I am really important. Here's a little poem about my story: To climb a rope. To sit on a perch and enjoy eating a piece of apple that I hold by myself. To play on a ladder and hang upside down from my swing. To sit on your shoulder and whisper in your ear. These are things I dream of doing, but will never be able to do. Because I made a sound. Because I got food on the floor. Who knows why.
Because I was a bird and did things that birds do.
My life changed. ....Forever.
My name is BraveHeart, and I was Brave. When I was yelled at, I was Brave. When I was lacking companionship and love, I was Brave. When I felt the heat on my toes that burned them away, I was Brave. When all I could do was scream, and dream that it would stop, I was Brave.
When someone who I thought would take care of me put me in the path of danger, I was Brave. All I wanted was to give love and get love, and when no one wanted me because I was not perfect, I was still Brave. Then...I was found. Now......
I am loved for no reason.
I am cared for just because.
I have a second chance at life. And no longer need to be Brave. My name is BraveHeart, and this is my story. My long journey has ended...or has it just begun..
