We are often asked, why elephants? What is it about them that attracts you the most? Personally, I’ve always found it difficult to articulate. My response is usually an intimate smile followed by sentimental tears as I think about their pure kindness and depth of sensitivity, I stand there lost in feeling that words can’t describe. For me, this is one of the most profound questions I’ve ever been asked. I now turn the table a little and ask you this same question. What is it about elephants that attract you most? Please share your answers here, we’ll post as many replies that we can. My hope is to help each other develop a better understanding of our own compassion and affection for elephants, what drives us to stand up to make a difference in their lives. Include your name if you wish but it isn’t necessary, all we ask is to share from your heart.
