While the current administration lifts the ban on importing elephant trophies to the US from Zimbabwe and Zambia, it is important to note that elephants are one of the most intelligent species on planet Earth. Moreover, the elephant family teaches the human family about unity and working together for the greater good ... if only we would stop, listen and learn. from the Heart ~ Cathy Ginter #SaveTheElephant

As long as boys are raised with notions such as “boys will be boys” when they hurt animals and other children, physical, emotional and sexual abuse will continue. As long as girls are raised that they are good when they are quiet and polite or that a beautiful face is more powerful than a beautiful brain, physical, emotional and sexual abuse will continue. Until we teach our children to respect others as well as themselves, the objectification of others that leads to physical, emotional and sexual abuse will continue.
Our job as parents is to empower our children to empower themselves … not to have power over one another, and it is much easier to teach our children well in their formative years than it is to try to repair the damage done once a child reaches adulthood.
