I would like to congratulate Dublin Zoo's staff on their newest arrival. Well done to all involved, especially the mother Lena.
In a week dominated by the Moriarty Report, stress tests, nuclear meltdown and war, it is a welcome piece of good news.
The primordial instinct of the mother to protect her young is inspiring. While nature is often cruel, it also shows how families and groups can work together to overcome adversity.
