It may be the very best thing you read today.
My class raised this little guy from egg to adult.
His pupa fell into a small cup where he came out unexpectedly over the weekend.
We all thought he would not make it because his wings are curled.
As I was teaching, a student called my attention to the net.
To my surprise, all five of the other butterfly's were surrounding him, teaching him how to open his wings.
One even used its antennas to try and brush up his wings.
He is a fighter and is now our friend.
We released the others today, but did not have the heart to watch him suffer since he can not fly.
We know his life span is short, but we decided to care for and play with him until his last moments with us.
God truly taught us a lesson this week to persevere through our adversities. With loved ones surrounding us, we can not fail."
