Play me a song, Mister Piano Man! ❤
Paul Barton: Musician, human, animal-lover.
Paul Barton took it upon himself to play the piano for elephants in a sanctuary in Thailand. Why? Because he feels the poor animals, who mostly ended up in the sanctuary after being rescued from torturous environments, deserve love and attention. They have, so Barton claims, worked so hard and endured so much, all he wants is to bring them peace.
The elephants seem to respond well to the pianist, according to one of their trainers/caregivers. In the image above you can see some of them gathered around Paul and his piano.
“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated” – Mahatma Gandhi
If we were to judge a person by the way he treats animals, I’d say Paul Barton is a wonderful man! Therefore, he deserves to be this week’s Heart Warmer ❤
I hope his kindness towards these gentle giants will bring a warm smile to your face. Have a good week, everyone!
