W is for Wale and Wayment – A to Z Challenge 2016

W is for Wale which means to choose; the act of choosing. W is also for Wayment which means lamentation; grief.

For today I’d like to dedicate these 2 words for a Dog who gave up his life rescuing people stuck in the rubble due to the earthquake which shook Ecuador.

His name was Dayko, a 4-year-old who died due to extreme exhaustion.

While we mourn for this great loss, let’s not forget to commend the fact that he did what he could till his last breath. He chose to continue (wale) and keep saving as many lives as possible. That was his choice. It’s rightly said that we are what we chose to be. We are what we chose to do.

Our choices define the kind of people we become in time. Whatever you do, always remember to own your choice. If you chose something and things didn’t go smooth or your luck ran out, then own it. That’s what you wanted back then. There’s no point thinking, what if I had chosen otherwise. I’d like to end this post saluting everyone that has given their all in such a grief-struck time. It’s times like these that give hope to many.

This post is written as a part of the A-Z challenge 2016 where bloggers from all around the world will blog for the whole month, daily based on all the alphabets in chronological order.
