In my last post, I used questions to describe how slavery in the Bible might compare/contrast with parenthood.
I also asked:
“What do you imagine would/will happen if our culture decides we must emancipate all children the way we’ve emancipated all slaves. (And, for reference, the historian Jim Downs argues that thousands of black former-slaves starved or died of diseases in the United States, after being freed.)”
But, I realize not everyone understands concepts in written form. Sometimes they need pictures–and preferably moving pictures–to help them grasp a point.
So here’s a video I found this week which illustrates nicely.
It’s only 1-minute long. Go ahead and watch.
Thought-provoking, huh? And it’s even more poignant if you read the top comment…
“Why would you have a bird like that in captivity anyways?”
That made me laugh.
Because it’s pretty obvious that “captivity” wasn’t such a bad situation for that bird!
It was the first taste of freedom that did him in.
