My Eulogy to the Rangers

Your Spirits are the Mists,
That keep the Mountians hidden.
Your Spirits are the Gentle Breezes,
Carrying your desperate warnings.
Your Spirits are the Gentle Rains,
That wash away their tracks.
Your Spirits are forever there deep within the forests,
To always to protect..
Born of this Earth protect is what you all did,
And when the time came,
You gave your life so one did not end.
For this I hope one never forgets,
That quite simply this was not just the everyday protection of a animal,
Nothing else but pure undying love,

Love of a Gorilla.

Remember always these guys dont do this for the money necessairly (I spelt that wrong didnt I...LOL) There fathers and fathers did this and they have so much pride in protecting them...

Every small triumph is a another step in the right direction. Thanks Stephanie.

Saw a wonderful Interview by Jim Clancey with Clare Ridchardson on CNN's "Inside Africa" and a video on the "Gorilla Embassadors" and the newly discovered Gorilla groups. Really inspiring
