#75 “The Wolf Flag Unfurled”

From Matt

The day that private citizens and world leaders alike have feared for eons is finally upon us. Today is the day that wolves demand their independence. This revelation comes not with a formal declaration, but with the unfurling or the great flag of the newly formed Wolf Nation. Behold the banner of the State of the Wolf. Notice its alternating dark and light yellow hues. These two shades of the same color represent two separate aspects of the animal. The first, brighter shade represents the exuberance and joy that is associated with this beautiful creature, but the second, darker shade is representative of progress, change and transformation. Additionally, you’ll notice that the flag here is divided into eight distinct sections. Needless to say, each division represents a separate aspect of Wolfdom. These are Pride, Strength, Solidarity, Wisdom, Courage, Oneness with Nature, Compassion, and Responsibility.

Although the wolf in the center of the banner may not seem to be of a particular species, do not be deceived into thinking that this is some mistake on the part of the designer. In fact, just the opposite is true. This wolf was drawn in such a way as to represent wolves of all species and draw them into a single, unified rendering of all wolves throughout the world. For you see, this creature possesses the snout of the Dire Wolf, the haunches of the Arabian Wolf, the eyes of the Tundra Wolf, the forepaws of the Golden Jackal, the ears of the Maned Wolf, the fur of the Grey Wolf, the teeth of the Alaskan Tundra Wolf, and the tail of the Alexander Archipelago Wolf.

The flag is being raised. The winds of changes begin to blow.

While some of us may be taken in and shown mercy by the newly formed Council of the Wolf, others of us shall surely fall in the countless battles that will rage for years to come as the Race of the United Wolf fights for equal rights in a world in which human ignorance and infrastructure have stripped the creature of its lifeblood. Make no mistake- although I am indeed a human and do not desire the destruction of my own species, I cannot deny the likelihood that we all shall stand on a bloodsoaked patch of soil, staring up at the noisily flapping lupine pennant as hundreds, thousands, nay, millions of howls ignite our ears in a furious victory call.

The dawn of the day that will spell the end of human dominance race is at hand. Decide for yourself what action you will take: Stand and fight, tuck tail and run, or join the wolf and accept a place of submission by his side…

The choice is yours. Quickly, though…. here they come!
