Would we go this far for our children?

This video is doing the rounds of facebook after having been captured by tourists watching a mother elephant rescuing her baby from a water hole.

Watch Christian Videos and Read the Online Bible at

Watching this mother doing absolutely everything she can to save her child makes me think about how far we would go for our kids.  I don't mean as individuals, there's no doubt that as individuals we would move heaven and earth for our children.  I mean as a society.

Do we value our children?
Do we have the best systems to protect our children from harm?
Do we put children first in our society and in the decisions we make?

Or do we let them fall through the cracks?
Do we assume that they'll be OK?
Do we watch them drown?

If society is this mother elephant, how would the child fair?
