31 elephants trek 12 miles to pay respect. But how did they know???
This came into my in-box - not sure where it originated but boy its worth passing on .... " HOW DID THEY KNOW? SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE THAT IS GREATER AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE. THE ELEPHANT'S JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT, BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW ????????? Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestsellerThe Elephant Whisperer, bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitatedelephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including thecourageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons & numerous elephants.Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend'.A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House. Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of thesupreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence 'spassing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animalsevoked in such an organized way: Walking slowly -for days -Making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house.Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephantshad not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years!But yet they knew where they were going.The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friendwho'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything..Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home............ Boy we humans have a long way to go to understand what this planet and life is really about!!
