Elephant And Dog Could Teach Us ALL About Being Friends
I saw this video posted to my Aunt Cheryl's wall and anything to do with elephants, well, I'm there. I didn't know it would make me cry...oh, heck, yes I did!!
The true meaning of friendship is shown in this CBS Assignment America in which Steve Hartman heard the story of an elephant sanctuary. And it could teach us all a thing or two.
The best of friends Bella and Tara are an unusual pairing. Aren't most best friends that way? An elephant and a dog? How could it be?
Turns out the elephant sanctuary also takes in dogs, as well. The one species doesn't want anything to do with the other except for this one pairing. Bella and Tara eat, sleep and play together. But what happens around the 1:15 mark and makes Mr Hartman tear up (and me) is an incredible story!
Can't we all just put aside our differences? Can't we all forgive the past and look forward to the future? We can...some just choose not to. It's those that choose not to that have the unhappiest of lives. Please, choose to do the right thing and love your fellow man...or woman. Learn from the unwavering love and friendship of an elephant and a dog.
