Elephant Raju Cries After Being Rescued From 50 Years Of Suffering In Chains 

This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.

The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.

THIS MAKES ME SO FUCKING HAPPY

Coraline (2009)

now take a moment to remember that this is all stop-motion animation

now take another moment to remember this was a movie/animation for kids.

Based on a book written for kids.

Not sure what the big deal about that is? It’s only Americans who seem to think kids can’t handle anything slightly unpleasant, and must have everything sanitized for them. Neil Gaiman is British, he knows that kids are not only very capable of dealing with darkness, but live in a world much darker than adults seem to think or remember kids do.

Children’s stories from everywhere else around the world deal with death, and violence, and morbid, scary things, quite frankly.

I agree

He actually wrote the book for his daughters, and they all loved it, even the youngest ones. He said Coraline taught him “an adult’s nightmare is a child’s adventure”.
