Photo by @brentstirton | Today we say goodbye to Sudan, the last remaining male Northern White Rhino. He died of age related complications at Ol Pejeta in Kenya, after being cared for by devoted rangers who guarded him 24 hours a day. I was mesmerized to see the relationship between Sudan and his caregivers. It showed me that once again there is so much that remains unexplored in terms of communication and understanding between man and animals. I had no idea that this kind of relationship was possible until I saw it for myself. There are 2 remaining female Northern White Rhino at Ol Pejeta, who do a fantastic job of caring for these last remaining Northern White Rhino.
The question out loud in the room is, “What do we do?” Does the show go on? We never know what to say. Our hearts are heavy today thinking about all those affected by the Great Mills High School shooting and the package bombs in the Austin area.
Reporting on tragedy is downright awful. Do we report what’s going on before all the facts come in? Do we keep laughing about whatever nonsensical thing we’re talking about before alerting listeners to the breaking news?
We gotta do what we gotta do. Even when we’re not quite sure exactly what that is.
