The killing of a two-year old boy is a sad tragedy in human eyes of course, but what does a vendetta against alligators accomplish?
When I heard about the little boy who had fallen into the gorilla enclosure in Cincinnati, I was fascinated just like everyone else. Maybe it's because I recall the hazards of raising two quick, mischievous preschoolers of my own just a few years ago.
The endless debates that have hogged the social media since the fateful Saturday cannot bring Harambe back to life.
I realize Jesus said no one can predict the official end of days, but this week's news of protesters a rage over the shooting of a gorilla to protect a 3- year-old boy might officially signal his near return.
The next time someone shows you the latest and greatest feature on their brand new smartphone, remember not only Harambe, but all of the world's gorillas, and ask yourself if you really truly need it.

It's so hard to be a parent these days. If we keep our children close, on literal leashes, we're called helicopter parents. We're told to relax and let them be kids. But the second we let our children go and they do something wrong, we're accused of being negligent.
I am thrilled that the child survived this accident and his mother and father don't have to live a life of sorrow and regret - since no parent ever recovers from the loss of a child. I'd gladly sacrifice an animal every time to save a child - and I'll have no regrets about it.
The instant that a Cincinnati zoo keeper gunned down the silver-backed gorilla, Harambe to save the life of the four-year-old toddler who wandered into his enclosure, the predictable happened. Tens of thousands raged at Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard for defending the killing of the gorilla.
My position is simple. The death of this magnificent animal at the Cincinnati Zoo "Gorilla World" exhibit was caused by the negligence of humans in creating a scenario that allowed a 3-year-old child to get into harm's way.
The controversy over the killing of the gorilla into whose enclosure an innocent and maybe mischievous child fell has been raging for the 6th day now....

In a world where accidents happen, we should always minimize or eliminate risk. Here, the only way to really do so is to not have certain animals in cities in the first place.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you're aware of the recent tragedy that occurred at the Cincinnati Zoo when a 4-year-old boy slipped under a railing, crawled across some wires and a moat and ended up in an enclosure with three gorillas.
