The animals were waiting. Then the elephant delivered his speech:
“Morning everyone, thank you for coming.
You have all been so brave during these three unusual months. Thank you for staying inside. I am so proud of this jungle for rising up to this challenge. Let’s take a moment to think about our friends that have left us this spring. Apologies to all family members that have had a hard time dealing with their losses. Keep making me proud. Stay safe and keep social distancing.
Thank you for listening”
The animals cheered and the elephant exited the stage after bowing.
