A three month old elephant baby died in a German zoo,
it was heart-rending to see how the adult animals
mourned its demise; and many good people shed tears.
Yet, my thoughts went to the thousands of children who
die through starvation, illness and neglect every year.
Some of them are buried in mass graves, others in a hole
dug in the sand. No picture of them published on the net.
And they will forever go unnoticed by the modern world.
Only exist in a mother’s heart of a loss too immense for
words to express when the newborn looked into his
mother’s eyes and its first cry was the sweetest music,
that made the humblest abode into a palace of delight.
