Finding your Why
It has been said the two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why and on this very day back in 2013, a determined and courageous hen named Little Miss Sunshine was lifted from the crowded and barren battery cage that had contained her for the first two years of her life.
On this day five years ago, Little Miss Sunshine stretched her wings for the very first time, she felt the sun’s warm rays beam down upon her skin and she learned how it felt to walk upon cool, soft earth.
Those first steps Little Miss Sunshine took outside of the battery cage were the first of many she would take during her years of freedom: steps toward her favourite human when she heard her name called, steps to bring her racing into the kitchen when she heard the toaster taken out of the cupboard and sneaky steps to the couch at sundown to cuddle up to her favourite friend and protector, Wallace the gentle giant dog.
June 8th, 2013, the day upon which Little Miss Sunshine found her freedom was the first step toward her becoming one of the greatest animal ambassadors we have ever known, to showing the world what the term Bird Brain truly means and to changing hearts and minds all over the globe.
June 8th, 2013 was the day Little Miss Sunshine found her Why. And she wasn’t the only one. I truly believe her time on this earth brought us a step closer to a kinder world for us all.
Thank you for everything Sunshiney.
