We are shortly past mid year, so 2018 is quickly fading away.
We have made progress and failures along the way.
Maybe we are not yet where we promised ourselves to do this year, but we still have 5 months to make it happen.
Am not very happy with the death of some rhinos that were to have a new home in Tsavo.
Am still following their investigation progress, with full details. We can try to understand how we lost those precious animals.
Its a bright day.
If you are healthy, have a roof over your head and purpose.
Those are enough to push you forward.
Ensure to brighten someone’s else day today.
Bright weekend friends..
How is the going,
Living with the knowledge of what you have caused to your victims,
Do you pose for a minute and reflect on the impact you left in them.
Maybe you enjoyed it, or felt remorse afterwards, or yet to figure out what you feel about the whole thing.
Many lives have been lost, others destroyed and more damage done,
The weak ones gave up and ended their lives,
The strong ones keep fighting to have courage to stay alive,
The confused ones are yet to know what to do next.
If they thought in terms of revenge,
They would wish that one day,
You too have kids just like them,
Then these kids cross ways with a monster just like you,
And get raped.
As they crawl and cry for help,
Trying their best to overcome the pain and accept the situation,
You will watch the pain you made someone go through ,
Through your kid’s eyes,
Maybe then you will fully understand the consequences for your monster actions.
But what they will do is forgive you ,
Try to make peace with the past,
Hoping karma will catch up with you,
Forgiveness is the only thing that will heal the wounds,
As well as boast will to live.
If you thought you conquered,
Then you are terribly wrong,
Yes you were a stumbling block,
And that was turned to be stepping stone,
For a bright future,
So you were damn wrong.
If you are victim or have a relation with one of them. Maybe a friend or a sibling or
anyone you know. Help them understand that it was never their fault to go through it.
We may never understand what it really feels but we will always be there for them. Live
is precious and a gift, problems and such incidences can be used to build strength. Lets
concentrate on the positives and make peace with the past. As long as you are still
breathing, you have a purpose to accomplish.
Samburu National Reserve special five are animals unique to this conservation area. They are way cooler than the big five. And a special gem for the North.
Samburu National reserve is located in the north side of Kenya. It’s in the Samburu county and managed by the county government. Elsa the lioness was raised in this reserve by George and Joy Adamson. You can read more about their journey in the book “Born Free”.
Its one of the famous reserves that found their way into conservationist heart and success stories. Having Uaso Nyiro River cut across it, a huge wildlife population found their way into this park. The reserve is found within a savanna grassland area which experiences seasonal droughts once in a while. The area can be really dry but the river refuges in such times.
Samburu community surrounds the park. They have been able to positively deal with the frequent human-wildlife conflicts. As we all know most of the Kenyan wildlife live outside the protected areas. Nature conservancy and conservation bodies have made this possible. They have provided knowledge and alternatives to promote humans and wildlife relations. The locals are now actively protecting the wildlife from the bad guys, poachers.
Samburu can be very hot during the day but the nights are cool. The locals are friendly and easy to mingle with. They are generous enough to teach and allow you enjoy some of their cultural events. They will teach you how to jump very high, apply your hair the red soil if you allow them, give you their delicious meals, among others. If you would like to enjoy all these, park your things and head there.
Back to our special five. These wildlife are rare and unique to this reserve hence the name.
- Reticulated giraffe
- Grevy zebra
- Somali Ostrich
