Rhino and Goose

Today is Mother Goose Day! Mother Goose is pretty much the mother (haha) of all fairy tales. Or at least the ones that don't involve the vicious tearing apart of the lives of people both innocent or guilty with very little discretion. (I'm looking at you Grimm Fairy Tales!) Spend some time today reading your favourite tale from Mother Goose. Even better: find a small child that has been as of yet deprived of such tales, and retell them to him/her as best as you can remember them. It's okay if it isn't perfect. The personal touch is what makes fairy tales so... well... personal.

Today is also Save the Rhino Day! I wasn't aware that the rhino was in any danger. Now I am though! That's pretty much the gist of this holiday. If you want to help rhinos survive life, then donate to a charity that puts money towards the cause of trying to crack down on all the poaching thats going on. Poaching is one of the biggest problems when it comes to animals going extinct. It's rarely ever nature's fault. Usually ours. So it's basically us doing all the harm. In case you were unaware, that also puts the blame on us. I don't know about you, but I don't like being blamed. And I DO like rhinos. So try to find a way to help 'em out. That is all.

Thanks for reading!
