Bertha Komor had only one wish since she was little to see a penguin.
What was your most cherished desire as a child?
Most of us would think about going to Disney World or meeting a celebrity like the queen. Others dream of seeing and petting an animal for the last time, their own or someone else’s. Although most of us would like to witness, spend and celebrate one happy moment with family.
All of these wishes are valid. We have them because we want to keep something. We only have one life and we at least want our biggest wishes to come true before we die. It sounds painful, but don’t we all think about the end of life?
We hear about organizations that grant the wishes of terminally ill people.
Relatives often sent a letter or request and hoped that their wish would be granted. Others, especially older people in hospices, told their caregivers about their dying wishes.
They will do everything to fulfill these desires. They pull strings to make the impossible possible, even if their wish is as simple as returning home and spending the rest of their days.
Bertha Komor had only one desire since childhood.
Ever since she was a little girl, Bertha has wanted to catch and meet the penguin. Yes, you read that right, penguin. She lives in Connecticut, and since penguins live in cold and icy parts of the world, it was not easy to spot them.
