…then the Elephant delivered his speech…

As I’m hiking through the rough jungle I listen to the squawking noise of parrots up in trees. 

I notice the sun gleaming through the trees as I get deeper into the jungle. Then just out of sunlight, I approach an elephant towering above me. The elephant and I look at each other, both with alarmed faces. 

The tremendous creature places a foot forward – and then the elephant delivered his speech. The thundering noise echoes through the jungle and the birds fall silent. At that moment I knew that he was telling me something…but I didn’t know what…yet.
