From the Story of the Auspicious Beasts –
Gorilla sat looking pensive… Mermaid wondered if that was a tear clinging to Gorilla’s soft black lashes.
“Silverback, share with us your thoughts on what you have heard today” Mermaid cautiously prodded, knowing that Gorilla and his family discussed the dilemma of man many times, prompting rowdy debates amongst members of Gorilla’s troop.
Gorilla replied, “Man does not honor his elders and therefore is unable to teach their children the importance of serving the greater good of the community. Their selfish ways have resulted in a generation lost and lonely. I wish to teach them compassionate leadership.”
