When we lived in Kenya, giraffe's crossing the road was a "normal thing". One night when we went to the airport in our tiny, economy car, one crossed the road in front of us. Fortunately, the timing worked in our favor as we surely would've been killed if we had run into the giraffe.
"Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What's one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully."
