What a sad but appropriate take on loss of innocence, Doug Morton. I don’t even have words for the horror I experienced when I first saw that photo or the one of Cecil the lion murdered by a dentist. What the hell is wrong with humans? How can they get pleasure from the death of a gorgeous creature? This is not killing for food. This is not killing because an animal threatens you or your family or your livestock. This is killing for pure pleasure. What a hateful person must you be to find self-satisfaction in committing such a horrendous deed.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
