Lisa Bohnwagner
 At the fair I saw an elephant. Five dollars for a ride. On her back the kids were yelling, squirming and kicking as children do while she simply plodded round her small circle. Every day for a week or two she'll do the same, then she'll be loaded into a truck to move on to the next fair. Was she born into this life? Maybe she was rescued from an abusive situation. Perhaps she's retired from circus performance. Does she dream of the jungles of India or is she old and tired and content to simply do this. I'll never know, but I can admire her dignity and respect her grace to accept life as it is.
