When my granddaughter Nikayla saw that I had taken a picture for my blog of her “Save the Elephants” poster, she said, “But it’s not finished!” So here it is, a finished work of art.
My friend Bill Jacobson also commented on my blog posting, “Elephants Have Feelings, Too” and sent me a link to this video about Shirley and Jenny, two elephants reunited after more than 20 years. The video shows the depth of the emotional life of elephants and the strength of their relational bonds.
I am grateful to be part of a community of people, both local and global, who are awakening to our kinship with other beings and the value of life in all its forms. “An injury to one is an injury to all” takes on new meaning for those who seek justice for all creation. Clearly, love is not limited to human beings. Love is the Source of life, the Heart of the universe.
