In the wake of the recent lion killing, try your hand at writing a caption for this peaceful photo, which I took last year on the Maasia Mara in Kenya.

It just shows that not everyone in the world shares our values.  But it seems that most people do, so that in itself is a hopeful sign.

Maybe all the innocent black people murdered should dress like lions so the world would care.
