That was not *the right thing to do.* It was inhumane.

The poem depicts a cold-hearted coward who didn't want inconvenience himself.

Every day in our lives we are faced with decisions, sometimes major decisions.
My husband and I just made a decision, one that does not benefit us but potentially many others. He's a physicist doing medical research who was about to retire at age 75, so this is not hyperbole. He needs and wants to retire but something was discovered, so he's staying on to make sure this big discovery gets out there. We may have to give up moving to a new dream home. Just an hour ago I used the phrase, "it's the right thing to do."

Saving the baby deer was the right thing to do.

Also and somewhat unrelated, unless starving, I cannot understand how hunters can put an animal in their sights and pull the trigger. They can call me an overly sentimental old shit. I probably am.
