RIP Cecil

Over the past few days I have been following on twitter the death of Zimbabwe's beloved lion, Cecil.

The lion's tragic death has sparked both outrage and heartbreak...

I don't begin to understand the world of Trophy Hunting. But I do like what this hunter had to say...

I have been trying to wrap my head and heart around the senseless killing of a beautiful lion and America's role in Big Game Trophy Hunting around the world. But, so far, that has been an unproductive exercise.

Instead, I am hoping that Cecil's death inspires compassion and grace and seeing ourselves with new eyes. And, as Hazel Grace Lancaster would say:
“I want to minimize the number of deaths I’m responsible for.”   -The Fault In Our Stars

So, I used my go-to:  Post-It Notes and a little glitter...

... hoping these little memorials will inspire compassion and grace and reflection.
