Topic: "Christian the Lion"(4)
"Few there are," said Frodo, "familiar not with Joy Adamson and 'Born Free'." Frodo has probably never spoken truer words. In movie theaters, domestic and foreign, forty years ago, people everywhere knew Elsa and her relationship to the pairing of George and Joy Adamson. The release of something so beautiful back to the wild touched heartstrings in people not otherwise known for even bearing the necessary organ. In what were truly tumultuous times, the whole world seemed transfixed by the humanity involved, and we all had a good cry, just when we needed it most.
These are difficult times, again. It goes without saying, and repetition accomplishes little in such a litany, that anxiety is rife. Perhaps that is what led Frodo to "Google" the video. Maybe it was the simple desire to observe the artistic application of a great voice to home-made movies. More likely than not, it was some sort of need to know that mankind does reach out beyond himself, and that, sometimes, he gets a kiss.
Dear reader, you deserve something special. Go and find "Christian the Lion Full-Music Video" ("lion" and "video" are all you need at "Google"), the search will not hurt you, and don't forget the tissues. For the next four minutes just sit back and enjoy the marvelous Whitney, and make up your own dream about the lives we try to lead.
