This post is off topic today, but because the word of the day is anger, I thought I would post this here because I am angry.
I am sure that all of you have read about the killing of the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo. There are no winners in this story. I am angry at the zoo for making the decision to shoot the gorilla, an endangered species. I am angry at the parents for allowing their child to roam into the enclosure. I am angry at all of the outrage from everyone who now thinks that they are experts on zoo-keeping and parenting.
Do I have an opinion? Yes. I will not share it because enough has been said on both sides. There is no right or wrong in this case. I can understand and sympathize with both sides. However, it angers me that a gorilla had to lose it’s life. It angers me that the parents are receiving death threats. It angers me that people are trying to make this a racist issue – really?
I would love to hear your comments and opinons – are you angry?
