Honoring Elephants

I have always believed every living thing has a soul, but it was never so clear to me as when I looked into the eyes of an elephant. 

96 Elephants are killed in Africa every day for their ivory. EVERY DAY.

Honoring these beautiful, peaceful, intelligent, loving creatures today.

This is Laxmi. She lives in a Temple in Hampi, outside of Hospet in Karnataka, India. If you hand her 10 rupees, she extends her trunk and gives you a blessing on the head.

Be informed. Do your part if you feel called to do so. And pet one if you ever get the chance, it's quite magical.

Elephants are humble, sweet, intuitive, intelligent, nurturing companions. Being next to one is incredible. They  deserve our protection.
