Space Bat


The Badger

Bereft of his ability to fly and with nowhere to go, a courageous bat climbed aboard our Discovery with stars in his weak little eyes. The launch commenced, and Spacebat trembled as his little mammalian body was gently pushed skyward. For the last time, he felt the primal joy of flight; for the first, the indescribable feeling of ascending toward his dream—a place far away from piercing screeches and crowded caves, stretching forever into fathomless blackness.

 

Whether he was consumed in the exhaust flames or frozen solid in the stratosphere is of no concern to us. We know that Spacebat died, but his dream will live on in all of us.

 

Then you have learnt nothing from Spacebat. He did not teach us to worship him, what he did was far more significant.... Spacebat gave each and every one of us the inspiration, the hope, the conviction and the courage to follow our own dreams, to make our own destiny, to take fait and push it aside whilst we follow our dreams to become better people.

 

Live by his teachings and his spirit will live on in all of us for eternity my brothers.

 

 

keep flying little guy
