Nervous breakdown in 3, 2, 1...

As if I weren't depressed enough - 
I'm going home from work and watch some asshole run right over the back of a duck crossing the street with two other males and a female. 
 I'm trying to pull over to pick it up as it's laying in the street, trying to use its wings to get away. Another male duck went over to it to try to help it. 
Before I could even pull over, another asshole (who had plain view btw) runs over it and kills it, barely missing the other one. 
I haven't stopped crying. Yes, it's "just a duck", but you watch that happen. If only I could have gotten there faster.
My life is at such a stand-still right now, I'm barely keeping my sanity above water.  I just want to go find a hole and crawl in it. 
Godspeed little duck. At least you didn't suffer long.

Oh hon, I totally get that! Totally. I'd rather stop abruptly for a squirrel and get rear ended than kill an animal. That's who I am. And that's who you are. I would have been crying my eyes out too. Why are people so inconsiderate? I hope there's karma...

It's hard to have a thick skin when it comes to animals. It's okay. I love that you stopped to help. You're a much better person. And I feel better knowing there's people like you in the world.

Oh, Barbara...I'm so sorry that this happened and that you had to see it. We do reap what we sow, but it sucks watching people sow. The world is a better place having kind-hearted spirits like yours in it, and I believe your wishes did help the little duck move on.

I'm sorry! Some things we just aren't meant to understand.

Sweet Barbara
I am sorry too- we would be crying, and we are with you.
And we are so sorry you are so sad, we understand- yes we do.
I wish I could fix you
love

We understand what you are going through and are here for you. Those A-holes who did not stop for the ducks are mean people. At least you were going to do the right thing. You are a good example to us all.
