the Elephant

From the time I was little, I could always hear people talking about my small ears. I wished they would grow. I pulled and tugged on them, trying desperately to stretch them. But they stayed small. For the longest time, my little ears made me feel small. I was not what I wanted to be! All I ever wanted was to be the same as all the other elephants. Rosie, Ray and Kingsley listened, and helped me to finally understand that if I looked and listen closely, I would see that all elephants were similar and different in some way – same as me!

Each of us is uniquely different - everything else is irr-elephant says Abel the elephant!
