I hit a bird today. I hit a bird with my car.
But you see...it wasn't just a bird.
It was a dove.
A dove!! You know? The pure, symbolic depiction of the Holy Spirit?
PEOPLE! I killed the Holy Spirit with my car today!!
I was on my way to mass -- yes, mass -- when I saw a little dove fly in front of my car and then out of the way. Then the bird became indecisive and decided to fly back in front of the car.
I've never hit an animal before in my life. And what is my first road kill experience?! THE. HOLY. SPIRIT.
The Big Kahuna.
I turned around to see if I could find it and help it. I parked on the shoulder of the road by the lakes on campus and walked around searching. I couldn't find him. He probably tried flying to some place quiet. To DIE.
When I got to church, I prayed really hard for the dove. I was devastated. I am devastated. Because he was just minding his own business and I hurt him....killed him even.
I murdered the Holy Spirit today.
I need a minute...
