I’ve been seeing this heading in various forms across the internet. As a mother and an animal lover this hurts my heart.
All I can think while watching the video as the gorilla is dragging that four year boy around, is what if that was my son?And the fact is, I can’t even answer my own question.
My gut tells me that I’d jump down after him even though logic tells me that the jump it’s self would render my legs broke. My heart tells me I would break down crying and be inconsolable until my son’s return.
My heart goes out to the mother of this poor child for shock and after waves of this tramatic event. Thankfully the boy only suffered minor injuries but I can’t even imagine the damage the media has and will have on this family. All the negative out burst from people questioning her parenting. The animal activists saying she needs to be charged for the death of the gorilla.
Myself both a mother and a animal lover, believe we should leave this poor women and her family alone.
If you haven’t read about this event, you can find just one of the many links below.
That’s about all I have time for today but I hope you all will be back tomorrow and I’d love you hear from you. Questions, comments or ideas.
Thank you for reading, now go get your mom on!
