The first time I saw an elephant I was just a little girl. I squeezed between the crowd to get closer to the rail to see them. One of the elephants started to walk in my direction. For his massive size, there was no awkward movement, he had such a calm, noble demeanor. As he got closer, it seemed as if he was looking right at me, but instead of my being afraid, I felt peace in my heart. His eyes were so kind, and I knew there was a gentle being living inside that massive body.
I've learned so many amazing things about elephants thoughout the years; most especially their feelings of love and dedication to their own family is not very different than humans. That experience changed how I felt the next 4 decades of my life, seeing all living beings that I encountered, not from their appearance, but from their heart.
Even if I don’t ever get that close to an elephant again in my lifetime, I want our legacy to future generations to be a world where elephants still thrive and walk the earth. - A. Hunt
