It is September 28 again and we are celebrating World Rabies day. It’s like, their’s a feeling of deja vu in every corner of animal enthusiast. Today, let us find a way to educate our selves about rabies.
Don’t you know that in every 10 minutes, at least one innocent soul will die from rabies? May it be from Asia or Africa, a little boy or a girl, but it doesn’t matter. The harsh reality is that, the fallen victim of rabies have a little chance of acquiring palliative care. A palliative care that might numb his/her suffering and it is already a big favor (to die humanely as possible) to some rabies stricken areas in the world.
Instead, a rabid fallen might be strapped in the bed or locked room until his/her purged body gave up. To be a victim of rabies and die can never be a metaphor of a droplet of life escaping from a pipeline,rather, it is a harsh and tortuous path in which they have to fight and suck every breath that they can, utter the words that can somehow trick their minds that the malady will somehow disappear in an instant just like a miracle, but sadly not.
A death disease purge by Gods to forever extinguish the soul of a fallen, rabies is 99.9% fatal. One of the most fatal disease ever recorded in human history.
A ray of light that was lit century ago – a fairy tail
Once upon a time, there was a man named Louis Pasteur who had successfully trialed the first rabies vaccine on a 9 year old french boy. After the boy received the rabies vaccine, he became immortal 🙂 (just kidding), the boy’s immune system developed a chain of immunity for rabies and from then on… the rest is history, the boy lived happily ever after though. 🙂
Why is it World Rabies Day today?
Today is September 28 and this is the exact day Louis Pasteur passed away. Being said, we commemorate this day as an anniversary and somehow continue the revolution that he started. To seek a way to eliminate rabies globally.
Let us help one another by sharing and educating everyone about rabies awareness, this might be little effort to you but for those who needs to be reminded about the importance of vaccinating their dogs, this is probably big deal to them and can save lives along the way.
Think of little ways we can help… what if you didn’t remind your friend about the importance of vaccine and the next day, your friends dog bit a child. What do you think will happen next? I’ll let you imagine the next scenario of your friend and the child. Happy World Rabies Day everyone!
#EndRabies TOGETHER save the lives of our children.
