The rain fell steadily as the shepherd moved his flock towards the path along the river. As the flock wound around a large boulder they abruptly stopped. Grumbling, he made his way to the front of the herd and looked down the river. A lone she-wolf sat on the bank, curled up, protecting something.
Hearing the sound of the man’s footfalls, the wolf looked up and unwound herself, revealing two infant boys. Gently she nudged them toward the shepherd, and, seeing that he would come for them, walked off quietly into the forest, her task complete.
She would never know the impact of her actions, of the legacy that the two brothers, Romulus and Remus, would establish as they founded and created the city we now know as Rome.
