25 years ago, Shirley and Jenny were together in a circus, used as performing elephants.
Jenny was only an infant and had just arrived from Asia. Shirley became Jenny’s surrogate mom.
Then they were separated.
More than 20 years later, a crippled Shirley was brought to the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. After spending two decades alone, Shirley once again met other elephants and . . . her old friend Jenny.
Watch what happens. Unless your heart is made of ice, you will weep . . . .
And may God bless Solomon, Shirley’s caretaker for 20 years.
