“If you know wilderness in the way that you know love, you would be unwilling to let it go…. This is
the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.”
– Terry Tempest Williams
Why We March
It is the 28th of October 2012. It is late Sunday afternoon under African skies. She is walking by the border of Tanzania and Kenya; a mother and a grandmother, her daughters are with her as she walks; the youngest is just 6 months old. Sudden thunder splits the air. The sound is unmistakable, the crack of a heavy rifle. Three rapid shots, one follows another. She tries to shield her family. She falls. With her, falls a memory that is 50 million years old: a memory of water, a memory of trails, moonlight, matriarchy and earth. Her name was—her name is, Qumquat.
She was killed for her ivory.
