Transcript

  1. Even Eagles Need a PushThe eagle gently coaxed her offspring toward theedge of the nest. Her heart quivered with conflictingemotions as she felt their resistance to her persistentnudging. “Why does the thrill of soaring have to beginwith the fear of falling?” she thought.This ageless question was stillunanswered for her.As in the tradition of the species, her nest waslocated high on the shelf of a sheer rock face. Belowthere was nothing but air to support the wings of eachchild. “Is it possible that this time it will not work?”she thought. Despite her fears, the eagle knew it wastime. Her parental mission was all but complete.There remained one final task-the push.The eagle drew courage from an innate wisdom. Untilchildren discovered their wings, there was no purposefor their lives. Until they learned how to soar, theywould fail to understand the privilege it was to havebeen born an eagle. The push was the greatest giftshe had to offer. It was her supreme act of love. Andso one by one she pushed them, and they flew! McNally, David, 1990. Even Eagles Need a Push. New York: Delacorte Press
