The Thankful Elephant

As November comes to a close, it only seems appropriate to share a note of thanks.

Thank you for sharing your pictures, your stories and your thoughts about elephants on this blog/facebook page/tweets. I absolutely love hearing from you!

Thank you for your continued efforts to change laws and regulations by signing petitions, attending awareness events and spreading the news to your friends & family. Together, we are making a future of ele-advocates dedicated to saving the world’s largest land mammal from the destruction of human greed and vice. I can’t imagine a future landscape void of these amazing animals. And I’m glad to partner with people like you to create a harmonious future for both elephants and humans.

Finally, thank you for opening your heart up to love these amazing animals. As Anatole France once said,

Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened

Sometimes that awakening can be painful. When we hear of an elephant family slaughtered at the hands of poachers, or of a high speed train in India plowing through a herd on the tracts, it can be devastating. Sometimes you may wish you hadn’t opened up your heart to love these creatures. But we also must remember that love is power - the strongest power there is. Mahtma Gandhi said that nothing is impossible for pure love.

So keep on loving, keep on caring, keep on sharing.  And Happy Thanksgiving from the Elephantopia family to You.
