Rescuing a baby elephant from a well

Rescuing a baby elephant from a well

(5:32) From YT: "We rescued this young eight months old calf early this week. Luckily the report came in early in the morning and we were able to get there quick before the mother was forced to leave by herders arriving to water their cattle. It was a happy ending as we were able to reunite the calf with her mother, Zombe." What did you do today?

That was cool. The sound the mother elephant made when the baby came back was not at all what I expected.

"What did you do today?" Well seeing as I have to make a living I wasnt in Africa saving baby elephants. **** it lets all go to Africa increasing out Carbon Footprint damage the wildlife with over populating the area and then come back after a few months to ask people with a self righteous tone, what did you do today? Well if you must know slapped the salami twice in the morning and fed the one eyed monster after dinner.

"What did you do today?" wasn't intended to suggest you're wasting away your life slapping your salami. Only you can decide that. It was more, "Wow, what an amazing thing to do."

Latest comment: Mix101, the question comes from a social convention of asking people what they did today. Usually the answer is more mundane: went to work, went to the pub, slapped the salami. So here we have an unexpected twist: elephant rescue. The question is also intended to help one evaluate their contribution, rather than consumption. If one consoled a friend, worked hard at their job, solved a tough problem, put a piece of litter in the bin, held a door for someone, returned a found wallet or did any number of things to contribute, then those would all be meaningful answers.
