Desperate to escape the wet, gloomy, chill setting into my hands and feet, I hurried into Rock Financial. I stared in horror as an anchorwoman’s voice grimly echoed through the TV, “Detroit Coyote to be Killed.” Frantic, the beautiful beast desperately fled the Detroit Police, leading them on a wild “Coyote” chase, ultimately ending in her and her unborn babies capture.
It seemed as if the coyote had fixed her eyes into mine, pleading for a second chance. Calm came over me and the irresistible desire to save not only the stunning creature, but the unborn life she carried inside, took over. I flooded the Governor, Senator, Humane Society, Detroit Police, and S.M.A.R.T. with phone calls fighting for the coyote’s life.
Hours passed without a word and I feared death would take the coyote. Hope overflowed when S.M.A.R.T. called with news that Humane Society was negotiating the coyote’s liberation. As morning turned into afternoon, the frigid drizzle turned into warm rays of light and almost simultaneously, the coyotes’ plea was answered.
It was like “The Secret”, the law of attraction, the theory that a person’s actions, thoughts, beliefs and emotions are said to attract corresponding positive and negative experiences. This gloomy day was met with opposite forces and as myself and others used our lives to impact the lives of one of Michigan’s most captivating wild life, the sun revealed a day full of new beginnings. Just five minutes after the coyote and her unborn pups were taken into safety, I learned I had been selected for an opportunity to spend my summer as an intern on the Interactive Marketing team at Quicken Loans .
Now that’s what I call instant karma.
