CONNOR P TELLS IT LIKE IT IS

 As I listen to a purple painted violin played softly, I am taken back to a time of sorrow. The memory takes me back to a dark place I wish I had never been. 

“No, not another one!” I scream in horror, watching the animals go down like targets of a gun.

A happy, yet helpless elephant minding his own business, oblivious to the fact that it’s precious ivory is worth thousands in the black market, shot dead at close range.

Then BOOM!

Another one shot down screaming in agony. The poachers move in, the elephant’s ivory ripped like paper.

  1. Dear Connor,

    Wow.
    You really made the story feel real!
    It’s really sad to know that there are poachers out there that do things like that. Great Job!

    Sincerely,
