I took my daughter to the zoo today. The eyes of silverback gorillas and snow leopards and Grizzly bears and Komodo dragons staring back at us, most of them near extinction, watching we humans, we the true wildlife that kill and disregard one another and our precious Earth. Those beautiful, wise animals who must see how far from the path we humans have strayed. Still, I have hope, for my daughter delighted in the quiet grace and wonder of each miraculous creature we encountered. And through her eyes, I did too.
