There is always time and energy for good deeds, and the example of 15-year-old Bailey Villavaso confirms this. On the eve of the coming of Hurricane Ida to New Orleans, she did a good deed and thereby changed her life and three other living beings.
The evacuation was in full swing when Bailey noticed something strange in the garden.
The wind had already risen strong, and it knocked down the tree from which the squirrel’s nest fell. There were three squirrels inside, shivering from the cold, but their mother was nowhere to be found.
Bailey decided that she had to save the orphans – she put them in a box and got into the car. The Villavaso family ran away, away from the hurricane.
On the way, Bailey contacted a veterinarian she knew and learned how to feed and care for the squirrels. The creatures turned out to be restless, but grateful – they ate and began to survey the area. Most of all they liked to crawl on Bailey itself.
The girl named them Simon, Alvin and Theodore. When the hurricane passed, Bailey began calling animal protection organizations.
Alas, it turned out that no one cared about the squirrels, because the hurricane knocked down many trees and these rescued squirrels are now thousands!
Not one such compassionate Bailey turned out, but most chose to immediately shift the responsibility onto others. And then the girl decided that she herself would raise the squirrels, become their foster mother. Not in vain did she save them?
