I am sure you couldn't have done anything to help the moth anyway, much as you might have wanted to. Their wings don't grow back and without being able to fly it wouldn't have been able to go about its business of mothing. And you wouldn't have known what to feed it. It's horrible to feel helpless though but sometimes you just are.Edited to add: I think the reason it has stayed with me all these years is the guilt. The guilt that I didn't do anything. I remember it looked right into my eyes as it tumbled by and I could see that it was in trouble but I honestly had no idea what to do about it. I had a couple of brother who would have done unspeakable things to it all in the name of fun. I know it was best that I kept it to myself.
