My best friend sent me a video about a baby elephant struggling to survive.

Rejected by his herd and quite sick, the future for baby Ellie looked pretty grim.  Although the technicians at the African rhino orphanage where he’d been taken in were working around the clock to save him, they didn’t have much hope.  Even with the attention and care of hand-rearing, elephants usually don’t survive in these situations.  They’re social animals; they need community.

And then along came Duma, who walked over and made a special alliance with Ellie in the sandpit.

And what happened? Ellie started to turn the corner.

But Duma isn’t another elephant or one of the technicians from the orphanage.

He’s a dog, a German shepherd.

And it was his presence, his community of one, that helped Ellie.

Do you have a community of one?

Someone who really “gets” you, who will walk in to the sandpit with you?

And support you in aspiring to your life’s potential?
